DRAPER -- One down for the Lakers.
One more to go.
Bonneville High continued its impressive run through the state 4-A girls soccer tournament with a hard-working 3-1 victory over Woods Cross on Tuesday afternoon at Juan Diego High School.
The Lakers will play Bountiful for the championship on Friday at 7 p.m. at Rio Tinto Stadium.
Meanwhile Region 1 schools Davis and Northridge saw their season end with losses in the state 5-A semifinals at Juan Diego High.
Bonneville coach Rob McDaniel was gratified to see his team advance past what it did last year,
"It was exciting. We felt last year in the semifinals, we kind of stumbled a bit," he said. "We felt if we had played our normal game, we should have been in the championship.
"To overcome where we stumbled last year was a huge accomplishment."
The Lakers have had the title game circled on their calendar all season.
"Our goal has always been 10-19 -- Oct. 19 in Rio Tinto," McDaniel said, and they knew what was required to get there. "We knew we had to bring the intensity this year. That's what we were lacking last year in the playoffs and it made a big difference."
Bonneville's Sienna Thornock scored just five minutes into Tuesday's game, but Woods Cross' Amanda Lund tied it shortly after in the first half.
Lexie Stratford put the Lakers ahead to stay with a goal before halftime, and Thornock really sealed the deal with a second-half score.
Megan Fillpot finished the game in goal with a strong performance.
The Lakers were sloppy early, but they regained control of the midfield and kept possession better in the second half, McDaniel said.
He stuck around to see who Bonneville would meet in the championship game.
"Bountiful came out on fire tonight against Skyline, from what we saw. They are very talented, very skilled. They wanted it bad and I'm sure they're going to have that same intensity on Friday," he said.
* BOUNTIFUL 1, SKYLINE 0: At Juan Diego, Jenny Skedros score early for the Braves, who advanced to the 4-A title game.
* ALTA 3, NORTHRIDGE 1: At Juan Diego, the Knights battled hard but couldn't top the Hawks and saw their season end in the semifinals for the second straight season.
Early on, it look liked Northridge gained an advantage when an Alta player was ejected for an altercation with an opponent.
Madie Lyons and Bizzy Phillips scored for Alta before the break, though, to gain an edge.
Phillips added a second-half goal, while Northridge's Dustyn Taylor scored for the underdogs in the 68th minute with a big header.
* VIEWMONT 2, DAVIS 1: At Juan Diego, the Darts met a familiar foe in Tuesday's semifinals and battled into double overtime before they gave up the winner. Midfielder McKenna Kimber scored late in the second overtime to give Viewmont the win. Laura Essig had the assist.
The victory allows Viewmont to advance to its third straight 5-A championship.
Karrie Pead scored the Vikings' other goal in the first half. Davis' Emma Farley tied it up with a long goal just minutes into the second half.
