WEST COVINA — Different boundaries, different result.
The tweak in geographic areas to pool talent from for the West team in the SGV Hall of Fame All-Star Game for high school football seniors paid big dividends on Friday night.
The West ended a seven-game losing streak in the series with a 31-14 win over the East in the game’s 36th renewal. The East still leads the all-time series 23-11-2.
With the West struggling in recent years, game organizers changed the borders used to pool talent from the 605 Freeway to Azusa Avenue. The game was also moved from late spring/early summer to January in an effort to help players get some last-minute recruiting attention before signing day next week.
