HELIX — Kylee Rogers and Claire Ely scored six points each in the fourth quarter here Tuesday night as Helix rallied to defeat Touchet 52-47 in a girls prep basketball opener for both schools.


The Grizzlies built an 18-9 lead after one quarter, but the visiting Indians won the two middle quarters and took a 38-34 lead into the fourth period.


"It was a good, close game all the way," Helix coach Dean Fouquette said. "Very good for the first game of the season. They played a good game and I thought we did, too."


Rogers finished her night with a game-high 19 points, but it was a balanced Helix attack that made the difference. Chyanne Hack tallied 10 points, Ely and Meghan Schroeder added eight points each and Addie Terjeson contributed seven.


The Indians got 17 points from ReAna Butler and 14 more from Zoe Weaver, but no other Touchet player scored mor than five points.


"I thought ReAna Butler played a really good game," Fouquette said of the Indians’ scoring leader, who also grabbed a game-high 12 rebounds.

"She’s a 6-foot-1 lefty who was a real force inside. She is much improved over last year."


Touchet outboarded the Grizzlies 44-40. Hack led Helix with 10 rebounds.


The same two teams will get together for a rematch Friday in Touchet. The Grizzlies are off Saturday while Touchet travels to Lacrosse-Washtucna for a Southeast B District crossover game.
