The Highlanders are undefeated in two playoff games following a 22-21 upset loss to Steele Canyon in the teams’ final regular season game.

The Scotties bounced back to eliminated league rival Grossmont, 68-7, in the quarterfinals as they racked up 586 yards in total offense while nabbing four interceptions and one fumble recovery on defense.

Helix head coach Robbie Owens said his team is in “a groove” right now.

Junior running back Elelyon Noa spearheaded the win over second-seeded Eastlake by rushing 25 times for 293 yards and four touchdowns.
