The Parker Broncs’ football team won back the axe the night of Friday, Sept. 10, as they defeated the Wickenburg Wranglers, 34-28, in overtime in Wickenburg. There will be more details on the game as they become available.
The firefighter’s axe has become a symbol of the rivalry between Parker High and Wickenburg High. The winner of the annual football game between the two schools gets to keep the axe until the game the following season. Wickenburg won it in 2020, and Parker won it the year before.
