The Dixie High Flyers (5-0) kept their unblemished record intact with a 6-1 victory at Desert Hills (2-3). Dixie jumped out quickly and built a 4-0 lead at halftime. Dixie coach Burt Myers had a joyous tone in his voice when describing his team’s win.
“We came out strong and scored a quick goal off a set from the corner,” Myers said. “We’ve been trying to get those kinds of scores more this season. That got us going and we attacked a lot during the first half.”
Freshman Aubri Challis extended her team lead in goals (6) by scoring twice for Dixie. Kenzie Cox (4), Nicole Thomas (3), Lauren Christensen, and Hadli Gledhill added single goals respectively to tally the six-goal output. It is the Flyers third match this season in which they have scored six goals.
“It was a good game for us,” Myers said.
Berkley Bundy scored the lone Thunder goal from a penalty kick.
“We fouled her and she got the PK, and she nailed it,” Myers said. “I think she would have got the goal if we did not foul her, she was pretty open. She’s a pretty good player.
“We kept our formation, we kept good spacing,” Myers said. “In the second half we got a little rattled during about a 20-minute stretch. Coach Allen [Thunder] made some good adjustments at halftime and took advantage of some things she recognized.”
Snow Canyon (3-1) was coming off a road loss to 3A power Juan Diego on Saturday and they shook off any lingering effects by disposing of the Canyon View Falcons 3-0 at Warriors’ Stadium.
Warriors’ coach Kenny Kunde said his team was controlling from the outset.
“We peppered them all game,” Kunde said. “We probably had possession 60 to 65 percent of the game. We just didn’t let them touch it very much.”
Canyon View (2-3) could not crack the Warriors’ defense while Cecilee Horlacher and Grace Walton combined net-minding duty for the shutout.
Callie Stewart tallied two goals, her third and fourth of the season, and Mitzi Gates topped the Warriors scoring with her goal. Warriors' sophomore Tirsa Snyder continued her impressive play and recorded two assists.
The Pine View Panthers went to Hurricane (3-1) looking for its first win of the season and came away victorious 2-1 over the Tigers.
Pine View (1-3) went up 12 minutes into the match when Kali Stubbs registered the first goal. Pine View held onto the single-goal lead until 15 minutes remained in the match when Kayla Hammond scored her goal putting the Panthers up 2-0.
Tigers’ Carly Stratton scored on a penalty kick with four minutes left, but that was all Pine View would relent.
Pine View Coach Sam Johnston said, “Our defense played great, real solid, physical, just like we wanted them to play.
“Our defensive mid-fielders did a good job, and McKenzie Hawes was doing a good job as far as pushing and finding her teammates.”
All teams resume play Thursday.
