'The Catch' confounds

Question: A friend and I have a disagreement regarding "The Catch." I maintain that Clark caught the ball in the end zone that is under the Jumbotron. My friend says it was the opposite end zone near where home plate was in the old days. I found one picture on line, but it is impossible to tell.
Would appreciate your help; no cash involved, just pride.

Answer: Tell your buddy he's wrong. It was the north end zone where they have the large Jumbotron. Montana and Clark did their re-enactment there on Nov. 5.
