Drug Cartel Extortion Attempt Sacks High School Football Game

A high school football game between a Mexico high school team and U.S. high school team was reportedly scrapped after an extortion attempt by a Mexican drug cartel.

The cartel demanded $30,000 from the Monterrey Mexico football team in order to cross the border to Texas, reports MyFoxAustin.com.

Monterrey officials decided that it was not in their best interest to travel to Texas and canceled the game.

The schools had played each other last year, and the Monterrey team has already traveled to Texas to play two different high schools earlier this season, reports MyFoxAustin.com.
