EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — Following a two-week shutdown of high school athletics in the Canutillo Independent School District (CISD), El Paso Independent School District (EPISD), and Socorro Independent School District (SISD), the restart button has been pressed on the high school football season.
Eastlake, who has played just one game prior to Thursday night, defeated Montwood 38-21 at the SISD Student Activities Complex. It was the first District 1-6A game that has been played in nearly three weeks.
With the win, the Falcons improve to 2-0 (1-0) on the season while the Rams fall to 2-1 (1-1).
There are nine games scheduled to be played in El Paso on Friday night, including two more District 1-6A matchups. The bi-district playoffs in Class 4A will kickoff on Friday night as well, with three Borderland schools in the mix.
