As we move into Week 5 of prep football in the Coachella Valley, we’ll be highlighting the Palm Desert vs. La Quinta game beginning at 7 p.m. The game will be played in La Quinta.

The Battle for the Flag is one the year’s best football games and it has been nine years since the flag has found a home in Palm Desert.

Follow us on Snapchat (username: thedesertsun) for views from the field (we’ll be Snapchatting from the Indio and Xavier Prep game) and on Periscope (username: @mydesert) for a halftime show of the La Quinta, Palm Desert game with prep sports reporter Nathan Brown and sports columnist Shad Powers.

More than a game when Aztecs and Blackhawks face off
