KAYSVILLE — Look out for the Lancers.

Layton High continued its march to the top of the Region 1 baseball standings, posting a convincing 2-0 road victory over Davis on Tuesday.

Layton pitcher Caleb Harrop didn’t ever let the Davis hitting attack get on track and earned the shutout win. The two teams are now tied for first in Region 1.

Harrop finished with a two-hitter, striking out seven while walking just two Darts.


Meanwhile, the Lancers pushed across runs in the fourth and sixth innings against Tanner Hall, who finished with a seven-hitter.

Jaden Trujillo walked to open the fourth inning, then eventually scored on Quentin Marcellin’s ground-out.

In the sixth, Parker Kincade was hit by a pitch, moved up on an error and scored on Logan Greenhalgh’s RBI double. Marcellin had a pair of hits.

In the seventh, Davis’ Jackson Peacock ripped a long double, but was left stranded, as Trujillo came in to end the game.

The second game between the two teams is Thursday at Layton.
