EL CAJON – The Helix Highlanders may or may not have the services of senior running back Elelyon Noa for next Friday night’s game against the Grossmont Foothillers.

While Noa was wearing a boot on the sidelines during Friday night’s 49-2 win at Valhalla, the captain was able to walk out onto the field for the coin toss.

While initially, it was thought that Noa might need just a week to heal a possible ankle injury suffered in last week’s win over El Capitan in order to be ready for next Friday’s game, however, a television report following this week’s contest said that official word of Noa’s status could be revealed on Monday and that Helix may need to use its other potent personnel for the time being.

Either way, the Scotties other means are plentiful and were in form on Friday against the Norsemen.
