In the four years that high school lacrosse has been contested as a sanctioned sport in Utah, Corner Canyon has never lost a state 6A boys championship. But Davis came oh-so-close to rewriting that narrative last Friday.

The Darts came back from a four-goal deficit in the final quarter to force overtime. In fact, two overtimes before Kampton Dutton scored to give the Chargers their fourth straight title in a 12-11 final. Davis, which finished the year with a record of 15-4, took home the silver trophy as second-place finisher.

Davis made it to Friday’s finals against the top-seeded Chargers by upsetting second seed Fremont 11-9 on Wednesday. The Darts pulled to an 8-2 halftime lead and held on to advance. Junior Luke Donigan led the way with three goals, juniors Rocky Edelman and Dawson Draper added two each, and single goals came from junior Ashton Wood, senior Ben Roylance, junior Christian Bott and junior Brek Jensen. Keeper Hunter Keller made six saves for Davis.


In Wednesday’s other semi, the Chargers ended Farmington’s season with an 11-3 win. The Phoenix finished 14-5 on the year. Freshman Kai Beynon scored two of Farmington’s three goals, with Charlie DeAnda getting the other goal.
