Against Pleasant Grove March 23, the Darts won 21-3.
“We played our best game of the year so far,” Yocom said. “We played really fast and played our game. Defense did a great job pressuring and forcing turnovers.”
Yocom particularly noted the play of Blake Lucas on defense and Eli Greenway offensively in the big win. “Blake was a brick wall tonight and made multiple saves,” Yocom said. “Our offense played great team lacrosse, playing fast – the way we aim to play. Eli was huge at faceoffs tonight, giving us lots of possessions. PG is a talented team and kept playing hard all night.”
Rhett Rice and Mason Gagner both netted four goals with eight others again scoring in the win.

Davis defeated Layton 17-7 March 22.
“We had to sit a few key players in the first half due to team policy, so it was good to see how our team managed without them,” said head coach Makenzie Hekking. “We were sloppy at first, but then the girls really started to gain confidence and took control of the game towards the end of the first half. We started to face guard Layton’s number one player Rylee Webster and once we did that we pretty much shut down their offense.”
