ECHO - Helix rode the hot hand of Kylee Rogers for the third straight game as the visiting Grizzlies made it nine wins in a row over Big Sky League opponents with a 56-38 victory over Echo here Saturday.

The Grizzly guard scored 28 points - half the team total. Fifteen of Rogers' points came via five deep balls.

"In the last three games she has 16 3-pointers," Helix coach Dean Fouquette said. "She's a terrific shooter anyway, but lately she's been setting her feet and squaring her shoulders. When you have someone scoring points like that, it's a lift. She was the difference today.

"Echo played a solid game tonight. We didn't really open it up until the five-minute mark of the fourth quarter," he said. "Our kids expended a lot of energy Friday (in the win over Nixyaawii). It's real tough to play with energy in back-to-back tough games. We were very fortunate to get out of here with a win."

Helix won the battle of the boards, 49-29. Megan Schroeder grabbed 14.

Helix is currently 9-3 in league, tied for second with Ione one game back of Nixyaawii in the East Division. The top three teams from the East Division advance to face the top three from the West in the district playoffs. Dufur currently leads the West with South Wasco, Horizon Christian and Sherman County battling for the last two spots.

The Grizzlies wrapup the regular season next week with games at Ione and at home versus Sherman County.
