El Cajon – The Highlanders took advantage of their opportunities and scored early and often in their 49-0 victory over the Valhalla Norsemen.

Helix quarterback Carson Baker only threw for 136 yards on 9 of 13 and also 3 scores. Helix scored its first points on a Elelyon Noa 30-yard run to make it 7-0.

Noa who ran for almost 200 yards last week ran for 125 yards on the evening against Valhalla. The defense for Helix would get into the act as Isaac Taylor Stuart would pick off a pass which would lead to another score as Baker would throw a touchdown dart to Isaiah Wooden for 12 yards to extend the lead to 14-0.

Helix would extend its lead 21-0 as Noa again would take a handoff from Baker and find the end zone. His number came up again as he would score again on a short run to push the lead 28-0.

It was all Helix on the night as they would lead 35-0 at the intermission as Delshawn Traylor would haul in a Baker pass to round out that scoring.

With the win the Highlanders will now turn their focus to the Open Division Playoffs where they will be the No. 2 seed and in which they hope to make it to the Championship where they want to face off against the opponent that everyone in the County wants in Mission Hills.
