BRAWLEY – Despite trailing the visiting Kearny High Komets 28-7 with less than two minutes to go in the first half, the Brawley Union Wildcat football team was able to rally and snatch victory from the jaws of defeat, scoring 37 unanswered points to win 44-28 in a CIF-San Diego Division III first-round playoff game at Warne Field Friday night.

“I’m extremely proud of the kids. … It was just mistakes we were making that got us down early, and we told them to just settle down,” said Brawley coach Jon Self. “That was our big halftime adjustment … just settle down."
