EL CAJON – Needing a victory, the West Hills Wolf Pack wasted no time posting a lead against the El Cajon Valley Braves in a 28-12 Grossmont Conference victory on Friday night at Priest Field.

Quarterback Braden Oberg rushed for two touchdowns and had 196 yards of total offense to lead West Hills (1-3).

“Oberg played his best game tonight,” West Hills head coach Casey Ash said.

West Hills jumped out to a 14-0 lead with 5:37 left in the first quarter.

The Braves scored with one minute left in the first half to make it 21-6 at halftime. West Hills led 28-6 in the fourth quarter.

“We made plays that we needed to make and show that we are capable,” Ash said.

“Max played great on both sides of the ball,” Ash said.

Junior Dylan Fruend also rushed for a score for Wolf Pack on a 5-yard run.

West Hills junior Dani Hermiz was 4-for-4 on his point-after attempts.

“The losses we’ve had this season really made our guys come out focused and they were able to hone in on what they needed to do to win,” Ash said. “Our team is very young and we have the whole group coming back in August.”

El Cajon Valley’s Clarence Johnson rushed for 100 yards and a touchdown in his final home game on Senior Night.
