Finally, high school football. Utah kicked off its season this week and nationally ranked Corner Canyon (Draper) rolled to a 49-20 win over Farmington to extend its winning streak to 27.
Three-star quarterback Jaxson Dart
made his Chargers debut and he completed 14-of-15 passes in the first half alone for over 200 yards and accounted for five total touchdowns. It was 49-0 in the third quarter before the back-to-back state champs pulled its starters.
The game of the week did not live up to the hype as Lone Peak (Highland) handed Timpview (Provo) its first shutout loss since 2006 with a 24-0 victory. Siale Tahi
had a monster night accounting for all three touchdowns and made the play of the weekend with a one-handed interception.
Things do not get any easier for the Thunderbirds as they face No. 4 American Fork on Aug. 20. They cruised to a dominant 55-0 win over No. 10 Lehi.
The three-time defending state Champs, No. 6 Orem, won impressively behind a strong offensive line. The top-rated player in the state, Kingsley Suamataia
, led them to a 51-14 win over Mountain View (Orem).
