SoFi Stadium Hosts First High School Football Game

Los Angeles rivals Downey and Warren have faced off in football since 1955. And last Friday's matchup was a historic moment for both squads. It was the first-ever high school football game played in SoFi Stadium.

The home of the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers sold out the lower bowl, with 18,000 fans on hand to watch Warren win a hard-fought 28-21 victory over Downey. 

The game was part of "LA Bowl Friday Night Lights" event. Warren will be invited back to SoFi on December 16 to be honored during the LA Bowl, a college football bowl game between teams from the PAC-12 and Mountain West.

"The LA Bowl is committed to promoting the importance of education, health and wellness, and physical activity by hosting various events in the local community," Adolfo Romero, vice president of programming and booking at SoFi Stadium and Hollywood Park, said in a statement prior to the game. "We're excited to continue these efforts by welcoming the students, faculty, and families of Downey High School and Warren High School to SoFi Stadium for its first high school football game."
