#3 Helix stuns #1 Cathedral, 45-27



LA MESA - The top-ranked Cathedral Catholic Dons (3-1) were riding high after three big wins to start the season, but that didn't impress the Helix Highlanders (2-1) who rolled to a 45-27 victory in front of a packed home crowd Friday night.


On the opening possession, quarterback Delshawn Traylor found the end zone on a 62 yard scramble to put the Highlanders on the board first. Cathedral responded with a 91-yard drive that ended with a 1-yard touchdown run by Zavien Watson to tie the game 7-7 with 4:59 left in the first quarter.


Helix regained the lead when Kamryn Brown's pass found sophomore Christian Washington, who evaded defenders with stiff-arms and spin moves on his way to the end zone for a 40-yard score, giving the Scotties a 14-7 lead.


The Highlanders recovered a fumble on the ensuing kickoff, but couldn't put up any points. After forcing the Dons to turn the ball over on downs, a 30-yard field goal increased the lead to 17-7 with 5:01 left to play in the half.


After the Helix defense stuffed Zavien Watson on 4th & 1, Keionte Scott's 34-yard dash to the end zone gave the Highlanders a 24-7 halftime lead.


Christian Hall sparked Cathedral's comeback bid with touchdown runs of 41 and 62 yards, cutting the deficit to 24-21 with about four minutes left in the third quarter, but two scores by Elelyon Noa helped Helix pulled away with 21-7 run to seal the upset victory.
