#3 Helix dominated their 2nd straight Grossmont – Hills League opponent when they took down Valhalla, 56-6. The Highlanders only ran 19 offensive plays on the night. The competition picks up as they’ll play Grossmont, Granite Hills, and Steele Canyon to finish out the regular season.

#6 San Marcos got off to a slow start going on the road to El Camino, but rebounded strongly with 21 unanswered in the 2nd half to escape with a 28-21 victory.

#7 Madison found themselves in a shootout with Point Loma, but got a big effort from running back Kenan Christon, a USC commit, who ran for 153 yards and 3 TD’s. Keontae Springs added 69 yards and a TD, as Madison was victorious 45-33.

#9 Carlsbad hosted rival Oceanside for their homecoming game and found themselves in another Avocado League battle. Luke Armstrong led the Lancers with 168 rushing yards, and Cole Wright came up big with 6 catches for 134 yards. The Lancers defense also held Kyrin Beachem in check, limiting him to 132 total yards and hung on for a 23-21 win.

#10 Granite Hills traveled to Grossmont and jumped out quickly, leading 21-0 at the quarter break. Senior Chris Ostreng did it all for the Eagles compiling 301 total yards and 5 TD’s to lead Granite to a 44-20 win. The league battle with Helix looms large two weeks from now.
