May 2, 2023 (Santee) - With spring sports winding down, ECM Sports finally caught a game tonight as Highlanders boys lacrosse traveled to Santee to take on the Wolf Pack of West Hills on the Pack’s Senior Night. The Wolf Pack are in good shape at an 11-7 record overall and 3-1 in league.  The Scottie dogs sport a 7-4 record overall, but are 0-1 in league play.

The Pack struck first in the first quarter after several good offensive opportunities and led 1-0 after one.

The Scotties finally started to push and tied it up at the start of the second quarter, but the Pack regained the lead within a minute on a quick race downfield.  In the final minute of the hall, Helix tied it up again and we went to the half deadlocked ag two apiece.
The Wolf Pack got the go ahead to start the third quarter and senior Vince Keller put the black and blue up by two.  West Hills kept increasing the score from then on, scoring four more goals.  But the Scotties answered with two of their own and the Pack led 7-4 after three.
The Highlanders opened the scoring to start the fourth and came in clutch again with the equalizer with a minute to go to send us to overtime.
We didn’t have to wait long until the winner, as the Pack fired the winning shot in within a few seconds of the OT quarter starting to win 8-7.  They move to 11-8 overall and 4-1 in league, while the Highlanders fall to 7-5 overall and 0-2 in league.
The Pack head over to Lakeside on Thursday for their last regular season game against El Cap at 7 p.m.
