PLEASANT VIEW -- What else would you expect with the league's two best pitchers going head-to-head?
The Darts extended their winning streak to a season-high four games Tuesday, taking over sole possession of the Region 1 lead with a 3-2 victory over defending league champion Weber High at Earl Heninger Field.
Davis senior right-hander Cheyenne Norton allowed five hits with a career-high 13 strikeouts, two walks and a hit batter.
Warriors senior right-hander McKenna Bull, who has signed with BYU, gave up five hits with 13 strikeouts and two walks.
Each team scored all of its runs in one inning -- the Darts had a three-run third and Weber a two-run fourth -- and committed only one error.
In their first meeting on April 12 in Kaysville, the defending state 5-A champion Warriors won 1-0, scoring a sixth-inning run on a passed ball.
"This was a big game for us and we needed to come out strong. We knew we were playing a good team," Norton said.
Davis (11-5 overall, 6-1 league) is 7-2 in its last nine with league games versus Fremont, Layton and Northridge remaining.
"I knew it would be a close game because McKenna is such a good pitcher," said the 18-year-old Norton. "I needed to step up my game to compete with her."
After fouling a ball off her knee -- and in obvious pain -- Cheyne Moffett stroked an RBI single down the left-field line for the game's first run. Cali Reynolds capped the Darts' outburst with a two-out, two-run single up the middle.
"This win was a big part of what we hope is a region championship. I'm excited to see how things will fall into place," Norton said. "Weber has proven it's a good team and we're a good team, too. It's always fun to play them.
"It was a team effort where everybody had to be working hard for us to come out on top," she said. "This was one of my better games. Everything was working and jumping today. I felt fresh; it was a good day to have a game."
Norton issued six base on balls in Thursday's 7-5 road win over Syracuse.
"Thursday was a really tough day. I was sick with the stomach flu and didn't even know it until the weekend," Norton said. "I just wiped the slate clean and knew I had a good team behind me today.
"Now we just have to take care of business in our last three games," she said.
Davis stranded five base runners, including three in scoring position.
Bull went 2-for-3 with a two-run bomb over the left-field fence in the fourth inning for the Warriors (9-9, 5-2), who have dropped four straight after a four-game winning streak.
Weber, which finishes up with Syracuse, Northridge and Fremont, left six on base -- five in scoring position.
