The “West Side Bowl” features two of the largest schools in El Paso, and is traditionally a fierce battle highlighted by close finishes. In Saturday’s match-up, Franklin proved to be too strong on offense for the wounded Thunderbirds to handle, and the Cougars scored early and often to reclaim the West Side Bowl trophy with a 57-17 victory.
Franklin, led by superstar QB and Nevada commit Baylor Romney, put on an offensive show, jumping out to a 43-3 halftime lead and never looking back. Romney threw for four touchdowns, three to #6 Aaron Smith, and was helped on the ground by Senior RB #21 Nick Bingham’s two touchdowns. Romney took home the 2014 Great American Rivalry Series MVP.
