Top-ranked Bountiful beat Viewmont 62-41 Jan. 31, going up 13 by halftime and held the Vikings to just five points in the third quarter to extend the lead and coast to the win.

Satuala’s 17 points led the team while Harvey recorded a double-double with 14 points and 11 rebounds. Johnson added seven points and Stevenson (six) and Nelson (five) were also part of the offense.

The Redhawks remain undefeated through 10 Region 5 games and are 16-3 this season.


Third-ranked Davis beat Fremont 59-46 Feb. 2. In a tight game through three quarters, the Darts outscored the Silverwolves 22-11 to end the game and win by seven.

T’maea Eteuati scored 18 points to lead Davis while Kate Willard (12 points), Kendra Kitchen (nine), Olivia Lifferth (eight), Chloe Peery (four), Kate Richards (three), Avery Dain (three) and

Farmington picked up its first region win of the season with a dominated 57-33 victory over Weber Feb. 2. The Phoenix squad got off to a strong start, holding the Warriors to just two points in the opening frame and increasing their nine-point lead to 15 by the break. A 35-point second-half effort put the game away for Farmington’s second win of the season – and first region victory.

Breklyn Archibald scored 15 points, including three 3-pointers, and Kate Garff added 12 points with Morgan Rogers also in double figures with 11. Katie Myers (nine points), Olivia Tobler (four), Ava Goff (four) and Brynn Ryan (two) were also contributors offensively.

In Viewmont’s loss to Bountiful Jan. 31, the Vikings hung with the Redhawks for much of the game, but struggled to contain the Redhawks’ top two players in the loss.

“When you look at the final score, it looks worse than the game actually was,” said head coach Cameron Gardner. “We lost each quarter by seven, five, six and three points. We were just one or two possessions each quarter from making one extra winning play, whether that is execution, finishing, bad turnover, rebound or getting a 50/50 ball. I thought our girls battled hard and showed Viking pride in their effort.”

Mary Carr led Viewmont with 13 points while Aubrey Mulitalo and Mara Mickelson both scored in double figures with 10 points each.

Against Box Elder Feb. 2, Viewmont lost 47-45. In a tight game throughout – with the Vikings leading by one at halftime, the Bees tied things up going into the final quarter and pulled out a two-point win.

Mulitalo put in 17 points to lead the team while Carr had a double-double effort with 14 points and 11 rebounds. Mickelson also grabbed 11 boards in the loss.

Viewmont fell to 6-4 in Region 5 play and are now 11-8 overall.

Woods Cross

Woods Cross lost to Box Elder 47-39 Jan. 31. The Wildcats held a 14-9 lead after the first quarter before the Bees tied things up at 19-all at the break. The team continued to be tight through the next eight minutes with Box Elder leading by two heading into the final quarter, but Woods Cross couldn’t pull it out.

Katie King drilled five 3-pointers, scoring 18 points, while Mari Nichols added 10 in the loss.

Against Clearfield Feb. 1, the Wildcats lost 38-31. Woods Cross got behind early and were down seven at halftime and not able to cut into that deficit in the loss.

Nichols and Kiyomi Tauataina combined for 19 points in a losing effort.

The Wildcats’ Region 5 record is 4-6 with a 9-10 mark on the season.
