Farmington, Bountiful boys soccer undefeated after early games

Mar 21, 2024 02:06PM ● By Josh McFadden

The boys soccer seasons are off to a good start for the Farmington and Bountiful boys soccer teams, with both squads boasting undefeated marks so far. Bountiful, in Region 5, has already gotten into league play, while Farmington (along with Davis), in Region 1, does the same next week. 


The Phoenix are off to a 3-0 start for the fifth year in a row. Last week’s lone contest was a 3-0 conquest of Skyridge in a home game for Farmington. The Phoenix have now outscored their opponents by a combined score of 7-1.

In the win over Skyridge, Farmington had a 1-0 halftime advantage and added a pair of goals in the second half to win handily. Jackson Cheney, Ben Wright and Chase Ashy scored for Farmington, with Cole Janke getting two assists. Goalie Jaxon Benyon got the shutout, his second of the young season. Wright now has a team-high two goals. 

The Phoenix close out non-region play on Friday with a game at Pleasant Grove. They play at Layton on March 27 to kick off Region 1 action. 


Because Region 5 has more teams, there are more league games to play and the need to get underway with region contests earlier. Bountiful won its first two matches, beginning with an overtime victory at home over Viewmont last Friday, 2-1. Jacob Patterson and Coby Forbes scored for the Redhawks. 

On Tuesday, Bountiful had a strong offensive effort in a 5-2 road win at Northridge. The Redhawks were up 2-0 at the break before a high-scoring second half saw five total goals, three from Bountiful. Trent Millard was the star of the match, as he put three goals into the net. Thomas Thorne and Parker Thompson also scored for the Redhawks. Landon Zayas and Giona Weston had assists, while Elias Pacheco assisted on two goals. 

Next up for the undefeated Redhawks is a home game against Box Elder on Friday. 


The 2-1 Darts suffered a surprising loss at Ogden last Friday, falling 3-1 to the Class 3A Tigers. 

Davis’ lone goal came in the second half when Marc Seelos scored. But Davis allowed a pair of Ogden goals following a 1-0 deficit at halftime. 

The Darts don’t play again until March 27 when they travel to Weber to play the Warriors in the Region 1 opener for both teams. 

Woods Cross

Back in Region 5, Woods Cross split its first two games of the season, both region contests. 

The Wildcats outlasted Bonneville 3-2 last Friday on the road, before falling at Roy, 2-0, on Tuesday. 

Against Bonneville, all the scoring from both teams came during an exciting first half. Cohen Neilson scored twice for the Wildcats, while Zach Despain contributed a goal. Three Wildcats – Maeser Rosemann, Aidan Moore and Spencer Keddington – got assists. 

The offense had tougher luck at Roy, as the Royals pitched a shutout. Meanwhile, Roy got two first-half goals to secure the win. 

The 1-1 Wildcats host Clearfield on Friday for the home opener and then play at Bountiful March 26. 


The Vikings will host Northridge on Friday and will be seeking win No. 1 on the season. Both of Viewmont’s losses, were by one point. 

In the team’s 2-1 loss to Bountiful, Jacob Ramos scored off an Adam Vanderlinden assist in the first half, giving Viewmont a 1-0 halftime lead. But that’s all the team could manage on the scoreboard. 

Four days later at home against Bonneville, the Vikings got into a high-scoring match with the Lakers, falling 4-3. Viewmont scored twice in the first half and was tied with Bonneville at the break. But the Lakers outscored the Vikings 2-1 from there. Ramos had two goals, and Nathan Low added one in the loss. Zach Andersen got an assist.
