Tate Terry put in four goals to go with an assist while Isaac Stout (two goals), Wyatt Farr (one goal), Jensen Freeman (one goal) and Carter Terry (one assist) also contributed in the win.

Viewmont lost to Box Elder 9-8 in overtime April 19. The Vikings were up 7-2 but couldn’t hold on, scoring just one goal after the first half.

“It was brutal. We made a lot of mental errors in the last two minutes of the fourth quarter which could have secured the game,” said head coach Dan Derrick. “I believe what happened was due to my inexperience in coaching and not knowing how to keep the boys focused and in control. We are very inconsistent and I need to do a better job understanding the situation and helping the boys get out of that funk.”

Samuel Terreros recorded four goals with Mason Gerrard (two goals), Presley Gubler (one goal, one assist), Tyson Mauri (one goal, one assist) and Nathan Delgado (two assists). Also providing offense in the tough loss.

Woods Cross

Woods Cross lost to Bountiful 8-4 April 19 and 12-7 to Bonneville April 21.

The Wildcats remain winless through four Region 5 games and have a 1-7 record this spring.



Davis lost to Fremont 13-6 April 18. The Darts scored just two goals in the second half and couldn’t overcome an early deficit.

“The game did not go well,” said head coach Makenzie Hekking. “The team that showed up was completely different from the team that played last week.  It's unfortunate to see your team backslide but I'm hoping we can recenter ourselves.”

Esther Facer and Tallulah Raser both scored two goals while Mackenzie Coleman and Kaydence Johnson had one each and Olivia Lifferth recorded two assists in the loss. 

With the loss to Farmington, Davis fell to 5-3 in Region 1 play and 5-4 overall.

Cecelia Walton was in on seven of the team’s eight goals with four herself and three assists. Keely Banks scored three goals and Avery Drake added one as well.

In the loss against Bountiful April 20, the Vikings couldn’t overcome a four-goal deficit at halftime.

“I don’t think we had our best game or a game that reflects our girls’ skill level,” said head coach Lauren Pescetti. “After having such a rough, mentally-taxing game with Box Elder due to circumstances out of our control, I believe that had some carry-over effect on our game with Bountiful.”

Walton scored all three of Viewmont’s goals in the loss.

“The best part about our region is that we get to play everyone twice,” Pescetti said. “Great job to Bountiful who definitely out-played us, but I am excited to get the chance to play them again.”

Against East April 21, the Vikings won 16-6.

“I was really happy with the girls’ effort and tenacity this week,” said Pescetti. “Our newer players got a good amount of playing time this game and we even had two goals – both of whom it’s their first time ever playing lacrosse [Alexis Lee and Madeline Gaskill] – get their first goal. Others who are newer to the game got to enjoy being on the field having a hand in our win. It’s the little things like seeing their smiles and pride in their hard work that continue to grow my love for the game as a coach.”

Walton’s seven goals were tops for Viewmont while Banks (three goals, one assist), Eliza Runolfson (three goals), Drake (one goal), Lee (one goal) and Gaskill (one goal) also provided offense in the win.

The Vikings are now 2-2 in Region 5 and 6-3 this year. λ
