LA MESA – Helix senior AMARI GREEN has quietly led the Helix Highlanders this season.

Green has been steady as the Highlanders’ floor general, keeping all of his teammates involved, while providing some extra help up front as one of the county’s best rebounding guards.

On Friday night, Green had to step up in the scoring department, something he really hasn’t needed to do this season with so many options available.

Green had 18 points as the Scotties swatted West Hills, 77-54, in a Grossmont Hills League game at Helix’s gym.

West Hills led early on a three from CAM BARRY, but Helix went on a 7-2 run for a 9-3 advantage.

The Highlanders would lead 19-11 after one period.

Helix would start to pull away early in the second, building a 30-14 just a little more than halfway through the second quarter.

Sophomore big man MAURICE HOLMES also scored 18 points for Helix.

The Highlanders’ BRADLEY DUNN had another nice offensive performance, coming in with 10 points.

Barry, a senior, led all scorers with 30 points.

Wolf Pack senior ADAM DILLON added 10 points.

West Hills junior MICHAEL TOTAH had eight assists.

Helix faces Grossmont Hills co-leader Granite Hills on the road on Tuesday at 6 p.m.

West Hills will be at Valhalla on Tuesday evening at 6 p.m.

 

STEELE CANYON 48, VALHALLA 30 – The Cougars evened their Grossmont Hills League mark at 2-2 with the home win over the Norsemen.

Ironically, the boys’ final score was the exact same score at the girls game, which was played prior to the boys’ contest.
