Two teams from Davis County remain alive as the final games of high school lacrosse season approach later this week. As of our press deadline on Wednesday morning, both Davis and Farmington are in the 6A boys semifinals, with winners from Wednesday’s games playing for the state title on Friday.

Earlier this week, Farmington’s girls lost a 12-11 heartbreaker in three overtimes to Fremont. Last week, all 5A schools and the Davis Dart girls team were eliminated. 


Davis, the third seed at state, moved to 14-3 on the year with wins over Lehi 19-4 and Westlake 14-6. The Darts were set to meet second-seeded Fremont in the semis. Luke Donigan scored seven goals, and the trio of Brek Jensen, Carson Smolka and Ashton Wood each had two goals in the rout over Lehi.

Against Westlake, it was Donigan again leading the scoring with five goals. Ben Roylance added three and Wood two for Davis. The winner on Wednesday would face either Farmington or Corner Canyon in Friday’s championship game at Zions Bank Stadium in Sandy.

Farmington made it to the semifinals with wins over Herriman 12-5 and Lone Peak 7-6. The Phoenix, 13-6 on the year, spread the scoring around.
