BOUNTIFUL -- At the high school level, Davis-Viewmont mirrors BYU-Utah on the college scene.
Two great programs now playing in different regions with all the elements that still make it a special game -- tradition, storied rivalries, connections between the two schools and the players with neighboring boundaries, throw out all the records -- now relegated to an electric pre-season matchup.
After losing both league games last year, Davis exacted a measure of revenge Friday evening by going on the road and sinking the Vikings 65-57 on their home court.
Like their game on Tuesday, the Darts had a big lead heading into the fourth quarter (45-31), but this time didn't let it slip away, even though Viewmont put 26 on the board in the period and closed the gap to within seven points.
"We did a better job at the free throw line and defended well the first four minutes of the quarter," said Davis coach Jay Welk.
With region play beginning next week, Welk said "We're heading in the right direction, but still have a long way to go. Offensively we did some good things; we just need to play better with the lead."
Jace Johnson rolled lucky sevens and had a monster game for the Darts, going 7-of-9 from the field, 7-of-8 from the free throw line and gathered in seven rebounds on the way to 21 points. Abel Porter improved on his free throw shooting and finished with 11 points and Tyson Denney added 10, including 3-of-6 from beyond the arc.
Viewmont sported a three-man act, led by Haden Heath's game-high 22 points and five rebounds. Jarom Tye came off the bench and netted 17 points along with his five boards and McKay Butler added 12 points on 4-of-7 from 3-point range.
* MORGAN 79, TOOELE 59: At Morgan, a fiery halftime speech appeared to be just what the Morgan Trojans needed on Friday night.
After struggling to a seven-point lead over undersized, but determined Tooele, the Morgan coaches lit into their players at the break -- particularly frontline guys Boston Saunders and Garrett Kuns, who at one point during the second quarter were benched in favor of two seldom-used reserves.
The message was apparently well-received because the Trojans ripped off a 14-2 run to start the third quarter and blew open what had been a close game en route to a 20-point win.
The win keeps Morgan undefeated in Region 11 play at 3-0 (8-3 overall), while the Buffaloes dropped to 1-3 (4-8).
Sixteen players got into the game for Morgan and 12 of them scored. Sharpshooter Jake Miles led the way with 21 points, while Saunders added 20 points and half a dozen rebounds. Kuns chipped in with eight points and Christian Wiscombe had six points, seven assists, four rebounds and three steals.
Tooele, whose head coach quit nearly three weeks ago, was led by Tyler Woodruff's 14 points.
* OGDEN 62, STANSBURY 56 (OT): At Ogden, the Tigers needed a clutch jumper by Anthony Sattiewhite to force overtime, then drained six straight free throws in the extra period to earn the league win.
Lyden Egbert scored a season-high 26 points, and added eight rebounds and three blocks for the Tigers. Spencer Smith added 17 points, while Sattiewhite had nine points and six boards. Blake Newman had six points ans six assists.
* BEAR RIVER 58, GRANTSVILLE 34: At Grantsville, the Bears got 13 points from Robbins, and 11 each from Nick Hillis and Wade Miller to earn the win.
* TABIONA 39, ST. JOSEPH 37: At Ogden, the Jayhawks fell in a back-and-forth battle. Demont Nay scored 21 for Tabiona. David Donlevy pace St. Joseph with nine.
* HIGHLAND 38, FREMONT 34: At Plain City, the Silver Wolves lost at home. Brock Smith had 14 points and seven rebounds.
* LAYTON 53, MOUNTAIN CREST 38: At Hyrum, the Lancers won on the road with a balanced scoring attack.
Kade Petersen tallied 12 points, and Colton Green and Marcus Kemp had 11 points apiece.
* AMERICAN FORK 58, SYRACUSE 38: At American Fork, the Titans lost despite 15 points from Brock Anderson.
* ROY 57, GRANGER 43: At Roy, the Royals won at home. Brekkott Chapman scored 19, and Chase Kunzler and Blake Toyn scored 11 each for Roy.
* DAVIS 44, VIEWMONT 32: At Bountiful, the Darts won their eighth game.
* HERRIMAN 39, CLEARFIELD 37: At Clearfield, a final -point attempt to win the game just rimmed out for the Falcons.
Briquelle Caperton and Kaitlyn Stratton had eight each for Clearfield, while Saige Marsh added seven.
* ROY 65, HIGHLAND 33: At Roy, the Royals rode a balanced offensive attack to pull steadily away and win the non-league affair. Kaitlyn Hurley scored 17 points, Jordynn Barrera added 14 and seven other players scored.
