With 6:57 left in the third quarter, Ja'Juan Johnson completed a 9-yard TD pass toTraveon Auzenne, and Chabot led 20-16 after Alejandro Cervantes' extra point. But Siskiyous went ahead for good on a 41-yard TD run by Andrew Kannely- Robles (137 yards, 27 attempts).
In other defensive highlights, Samuele Cavallini and Eric Tafeamalii both had quarterback sacks. Lapitu Mahoni and Le-Anthony Grey both were in on nine tackles.
West Hills (2-2) lost to Laney (4-0) 77-12 last week but does own wins over DVC, 35-29, and Shasta, 40-20.
