PUEBLO, Colorado (KRDO) – The 47th Cannon game between Pueblo South and Pueblo East ended early after a fight between the two teams.
According to our sports reporter who was at the game Friday night at Dutch Clark, the match has been called. East won 23-0.
Watch what happened in the field below:
Although the East has been declared the winner, the cannon will not be delivered at this point.
Aaron Bravo, sporting director of the D60, said that after meeting “as a group” it was decided not to give the cannon because it was “not in the interest of this crowd.”
Bravo said the cannon exchange will happen at a different time. Cheers can be heard from the east side after the announcement. The south side was almost vacant.

Bravo said there would be a meeting on Monday “to look at the whole situation and hopefully eliminate something like this from happening again.”
At this time, Bravo is not sure what started the fight but said that appropriate measures will be taken.
Bravo added that clearing the stadium before declaring the East win by saying the cannon would not be exchanged was not intended. They just wanted to make a good decision.
