“Hard effort tonight especially in the second half,” West Hills coach ELIAS TOTAH said. “Did what we had to do on the defensive end to succeed in this one.

“Senior guard Michael Totah (two steals) gave us a huge boost. He just does so many different things on both ends in unique fashion. He showed his worth tonight. Might have been the shoes he was wearing.

The Pack improved to 11-10 on the season and 1-3 in Grossmont Hills League play.
