MaxPreps football editor breaks down the national scene.
The 6-foot-2, 180-pound dual threat quarterback accounted for 400 yards and all five touchdowns, leading the nation's No. 22 team to a 34-7 Utah 6A semifinal playoff win over Lone Peak Friday afternoon at Dixie State.
The Chargers (13-0) play the American Fork versus East winner in next week's championship.
According to KSLSports.com
, Hagen completed 14-of-29 passes for 280 yards and three touchdowns and rushed 14 times for 120 yards and two more scores.
Corner Canyon had a 20-0 lead before Nate Ritchie rushed for a score in the fourth quarter for the Lone Peak (4-10), which earlier forfeited several wins for using an ineligible player.
The teams met earlier in the season at Corner Canyon with the Chargers barely pulling out a 21-17 victory. This game was much different. It was the MaxPreps Game of the Week
Hagen's favorite target Friday was Talmage Handley
, who had just three catches but for 146 yards and two scores. The two connected on an 80-yard touchdown on the game's first drive to give the Chargers a 6-0 lead.
The score remained that way until Hagen connected on a 7-yard TD pass to John Glavine
late in the first half, to make it 13-0. That's all the points Corner Canyon needed.
