The Southwest High Eagles football squad ended its non-league season with another close loss, this time to the undefeated Cibola High Raiders from Yuma at Eagle Field in El Centro on Friday.
The Eagles, now 1-4, only generated two points, by way of a safety in the first quarter when Cibola quarterback Cody Peterson was sacked in his end zone by Danny Lopez with 1:48 left in the quarter.
The first quarter ended with Southwest up 2-0.
In the second quarter neither team generated any scoring opportunities. Although both offenses were struggling to move the ball, the defenses were coming up with big plays.
The Raiders tried to establish a running game led by Michael Jones but Cibola's forays were cut short by the Eagles' hard-hitting defense.
