RANCHO SAN DIEGO (12-4-15) — Steele Canyon got 15 points from ASHLEY TAVIZON and 13 more from JULES LOIBL as the Cougars clubbed visiting Point Loma 43-29 in Thursday’s (Dec. 3) non-league encounter.

The two high scorers combined to click on 8 of 9 free throws.

Steele Canyon jumped in front 12-6 and poured on the coal the rest of the way.

“It’s the first time in four years that we are 2-0,” said Steele Canyon coach PETER RUIZ. “It feels good but it’s still early. I’m not counting my chickens before they hatch. We’re going in the right direction though.”

LA COSTA CANYON 41, WEST HILLS 26 – The West Hills Wolf Pack was outscored 10-1 in the third period and 10-6 in the final stanza in a lop-sided loss to La Costa Canyon Thursday’s (Dec. 3) Tip-Off Classic in Santee.

West Hills led 13-11 after one quarter but fell behind 21-19 by intermission and then the offense went flat during the final two periods.

“We started off well, jumping out to a 13-11 lead after 1 quarter,” said Wolf Pack coach RYAN KINSER. “We fell apart offensively the rest of the game. We were only down two at the half then came out and scored 1 point in the 3rd. We missed way too many lay ups and had way too many turnovers. At least we played well defensively but you can’t beat a good team shooting 19 percent from the field.”

MEGAN SCOTT led West Hills with 10 points and 7 rebounds.

KERRIE DANIELS also crashed the boards to collect 9 caroms.

West Hills
