Bountiful defeated Viewmont twice this past week in a battle for first in Region 5. Davis holds onto second place in Region 1 with two wins. Woods Cross went 1-1 while Farmington lost a close one to the Darts.


Davis defeated Farmington 37-35 Feb. 1. The Darts had a five-point lead at halftime and held on, with Sierra Passey hitting a 3-pointer at the buzzer to win the game. Kylee Mabry and Kendra Kitchen both had eight points to lead Davis with Taylor Leavitt adding seven and Makayla Patterson and Passey six each.

Against Weber Feb. 4, the Darts won 59-22.  Davis got off to a 16-2 start and cruised from there in the big win. 

Kitchen scored 16 points to lead the way with Passey adding 12.

The Darts are now 8-1 in Region 1’s standings, sitting in second place, and 16-2 overall.


Farmington lost by two to Davis Feb. 1. The Phoenix outscored the Darts in the second half – after being down throughout the game – but it just wasn’t enough. Delaney Baker had 11 points and seven rebounds to lead Farmington.

“We lost a nail biter,” said head coach Van Price. “Defense played a big factor with neither team scoring a lot of points. We held a one-point lead with under a minute to go but then we missed three free throws that could have won the game.”

Price also noted the loss of Maddie Hauck who went down in the fourth quarter with a knee injury. “That hurt us a lot as well,” he said. “We still don’t know how bad it is.”

The Phoenix fell to 3-5 in Region 1 and 8-9 on the year.


In a matchup of the top two Region 5 teams, Bountiful beat Viewmont 43-41 Feb. 1. After an even first quarter, Bountiful got down by six at the break, but the Redhawks outscored the Vikings 22 to 14 in the second half to win a close one.

“It was a hard-fought game,” said head coach Joel Burton. “It was a good win to end the first half of region.”

Claire Cook led in scoring with 11 points while Lizzy McConkie and Riley Johnson added 10 each.

Bountiful and Viewmont faced each other for the second time this week with the Redhawks winning 48-40 Feb. 4. Bountiful went up early and held an eight-point lead by halftime, which ended up being the winning margin. Cook and Taylor Harvey both had 12 points with Johnson putting in 10.

The Redhawks remain undefeated through six games in Region 5 play and are 13-3 this season.


Viewmont lost by two in a rescheduled game against Bountiful Feb. 1. The Vikings were up 38-30 entering the fourth quarter, but scored just three points in the final frame in the two-point loss. Emma Multalo had 18 points to lead Viewmont with Grace MacKay also in double figures with 11.

“We lost a close one after leading most of the game,” said head coach Roger Farnsworth. “Our defense was very good again. We just couldn’t get a bucket when we needed it. We’re excited to get to play them again.”

In the rematch three days later with Bountiful, the Vikings lost by eight.

Multalo’s 15 points was a game-high.

Viewmont is now 4-2 in Region 5 and 7-12 overall.

Woods Cross

Woods Cross lost to Box Elder 51-35 Feb. 1. The Wildcats scored just four points in the first quarter to get down early and struggled to lessen the deficit in the loss.

“We competed hard against them, but came up short,” said head coach David Simon. “We just got off to a slow start. We fought hard to get back into the game, and we did. After we got back into it, we had a couple of defensive breakdowns. They are a good team that makes you pay for that.” Georgia Hatton led Woods Cross with 12 points.

The Wildcats again played Box Elder Feb. 4 and won 43-26. They led 21-9 at halftime and then held the Bees to single-digit scoring in each of the game’s final two quarters to increase their winning margin.

“I was so proud of all the girls after this game,” Simon said. “It has been a long week and we had to play the same team back to back. It’s been physically and mentally draining for the girls this last week and a half. For them to come out and play like they played during this game, I couldn’t have been happier.” Kenna Cowley had 14 points to lead the team in scoring.

“The best part of the night was that we went 19 of 24 from the free throw line and 11 of 13 just in the fourth quarter,” Simon said. “We had great concentration and focus during that time. The girls looked calm and confident as they stepped up to the line. The defensive phase of the game was really on point. We held a team that is averaging over 50 points a game to only 26. We were super proud of their effort.”

The win brought Woods Cross into a third-place tie in Region 5 with Box Elder as both squads have 3-3 marks. The Wildcats’ season record currently stands at 11-6. λ
