CHULA VISTA  – After a couple of tough losses the West Hills Wolf Pack took to the road and never really looked back as they defeated the Sweetwater Red Devils, 58-37, on Tuesday (Dec. 6).

Everyone for the Pack was able to get into the contest and rack up minutes as West Hills would take control of the contest with a 33-20 advantage at the break. Leading the charge for the Pack in the first half was Junior Theron Humphrey who canned 8 of his 11 points in the half and right behind him was Senior Zeid Salem who also tallied 8 points in the first half.

The Pack in the second half would really push things out of reach as Sweetwater would be held to only 3 points in the third quarter as they would be outscored 13-3. Leading all scorers was Salem who racked up 15 points on the night including a perfect 8-of-8 from the foul line.

Both Vince Hillman and Humphrey for the Pack would also score in the double-digits as both tallied 11 points on the evening.

With the win, the Wolf Pack halt their two-game losing streak and improve their record on the season to 5-2 and will next comeback home tomorrow evening on Wednesday to take on the Maranatha Christian Eagles who are coming off of a 46-44 victory over the Christian High Patriots and a 2-4 overall record.
