Davis defeated Layton 25-0 March 21.

“Our guys played well and put together a complete performance,” said Head Coach Dillon Yocom. “Jacob Faerber did a great job at face-offs for us, winning 85 percent. Ashton Wood also played great team lacrosse, dishing seven assists and scoring two goals himself. Layton continued to fight the entire game and will continue to improve as the season progresses.”

Also producing offensively for the Darts were Nick Johnson and Dawson Draper, who both scored five goals and had two assists, along with Emmett Rice (two goals, two assists), Carson Smolka (two goals, two assists), Brek Jensen (two goals, one assist), Ben Roylance (two goals), Emerson Bell (one goal, one assist), Rocky Edelman (one goal), Faerber (one goal), Chase Nelson (one goal) and Deuce Wright (one goal).

Against Olympus March 23, Davis lost 20-4.

Eli Greenway’s two goals were tops for the Darts while Johnson and Jensen each scored a goal and Johnson and Ashton Wood assisted on goals in the loss.

The Darts are now 2-3 this season.


Farmington beat Roy 11-6 March 21. The Phoenix squad was up 6-2 at the half before scoring five more second-half goals in the win.

Cooper Hyde led the way with four goals while Mason Hepworth (two goals, two assists), Mitch Milne (two goals, one assist), Tyler Jacobs (one goal, one assist), Charlie DeAndra (one goal), Kai Leavitt (one goal) and Dante Coats (one assist) also contributed offensively.

Farmington evened its season record to 2-2.


Bountiful defeated Olympus 20-5 March 21 for its first win of the season. The game was out of hand in the first half with the Redhawks trailing 16-5 in the loss.

“It was a hard game,” said Head Coach Peter Jordan. “We’ve got a lot of inexperienced guys, but we took some good steps forward.”

Players providing offense for Bountiful were Tate Terry (two goals, two assists), Ryland Hewitt (one goal), Isaac Stout (one goal), Carter Terry (one goal) and Nathan Horne (one assist).

The Redhawks are now 1-3 this year.


Viewmont pulled out a close one with Highland 12-11 March 22.

“It was a great game and was very entertaining all the way until the last second,” said Head Coach Daniel Derrick. “We stumbled a bit in the first quarter with simple passing and catching which caused lots of unexpected and unnecessary turnovers. Sometimes I want to throw my eight-year-old son in there to show them how it’s done! The game was back and forth, but the players of the game were our faceoff guys [Mason Gerrard and Kai Horlacher] who completly dominated the center of the field. We won because of them, 100 percent.”

Samuel Terreros scored six goals and had two assists to lead the Vikings on offense along with Tyson Mauri (five goals, three assists), Rykert Zeh (one goal), Tyler Mauri (two assists) and Presley Gubler (one assist).

Viewmont is 2-1 this season.

“It went well,” said Head Coach Chris MacAulay.

Riley Sant scored three goals and recorded two assists while Alexandra MacAulay netted three goals and had an assist and Mikayla Jackson and Kassie Moffatt also scored three goals each.

“Elle Erickson was also stellar in the goal,” said coach MacAulay. “We also played a player down for nearly 34 minutes due to having four yellow cards.”

Davis beat Layton 16-5 March 21.

“Our game went well,” said Head Coach Makenzie Hekking. “We were able to get our bench players more playing time which was nice. In all, we had eight different goal scorers and we won 59 percent of the draws. We still have things to work on, but it was a great team win.”
