Farmington is 1-10 so far this season.


Bountiful beat Northridge 59-28 Jan. 28, getting up early and holding a 10-point advantage by the break. The Redhawks continued to pour it on in the second half with 25 more points to run away with the game.

Viewmont defeated Box Elder 68-64 Jan. 10. The Vikings were down by one point after the first quarter before scoring 22 points in the second to go up four at the break. That ultimately ended up being the difference in the game as Viewmont and the Bees both scored 30 points in the second half.

“We shot the ball really well, we out-rebounded them, and we scored well in transition,” said head coach Cameron Gardner. “We led most of the game. Every time they went on a run we responded and never let them take the lead. We got up by double digits a few times but we did struggle down the stretch with some turnovers and they cut it two points with 10 seconds left and we were able to hold on and get the win. Overall, we did a lot of great things and had a balanced scoring attack.”

Mary Carr’s 17 points and nine rebounds led the Vikings while Aubrey Mulitalo (16 points), Kristina Gunnell (14), Mara Mickelson (13), Callie Peterson (5) and Sophie Gold (3) also scored in the win.

Against Woods Cross Jan. 12, Viewmont won 56-45. The Vikings were ahead much of the game, enjoying a seven-point lead at halftime and held off Woods Cross in the win.

Carr had 14 points with Mickelson also in double figures at 10. Mulitalo (nine points), Gunnell (eight), Gold (six), Karissa Goff (four), Peterson (three) and Cayla Stout (two).

With the two wins this week, Viewmont’s current record is now 8-5.
