Helix tumbles to Imbler, Arlington

HELIX - The Helix Grizzlies fell to 1-6 Saturday as the shorthanded girls fell first to Arlington, 30-22, then Imbler, 53-24.

The Grizzlies only had three varsity players available for the weekend's action as four were out due to either injury or illness.

On Saturday night, Helix was outscored 17-5 in the first quarter and was never able to get within shouting distance. Imbler led 35-15 at the half.

"I felt like we really covered the outside very well, but inside Imbler really did a great job working the ball inside, and they got more shooting done inside under the basket then we did," Helix coach Melissa Nitz said.

"We knew it was going to be a tough game," she said.

Against Arlington Friday night, the Griz were able to keep it close, trailing just 10-8 at the half, but an 11-5 third quarter proved to be Helix's downfall as the Honkers pulled away. The teams were an even 9-9 in the fourth.

Helix hosts Elgin Tuesday.
