PREP SOCCER: Stoppage time penalty kick lifts Viewmont
Wednesday , March 26, 2014 - 7:04 AM
BOUNTIFUL – Lucas Cawley scored on a penalty kick during stoppage time of the first overtime to give Viewmont its only goal and a 1-0 victory over previously-unbeaten Layton Tuesday.
Cawley was taken down following a corner kick and went straight down the middle, slipping the ball past Layton goalkeeper Isaac Hunter.
Porter May earned the shutout for Viewmont.
“I just tried to make a play out of it, got the call and put it away,” Cawley said.
Cawley admitted the situation was a factor in his decision to put the ball where he did.
“Usually, I’m going to put it in the left, but today there was a lot of nerves going,” Cawley said. “It was overtime, so I figured I’d just put it on target and that was the most important thing.”
Layton wasn’t held without its own scoring chances, but couldn’t capitalize. So far this year, that’s been a strength of Viewmont’s defense.
“We haven’t given up too many goals on runs of play,” Viewmont coach Dave Wigham said. “The goals we’ve given up have been on set pieces.”
Bonneville 4, Box Elder 3: At Washington Terrace, Chandler Baddley scored twice in his first game back after being out with an injury for the last four games to lead Bonneville past Box Elder 4-3 Tuesday, handing the Bees their first loss of the season.
Caio Martins and Logan Nicholas each scored goals as well for Bonneville, which led just 1-0 at halftime before establishing a commanding 4-1 lead in the second half.
“It was good to get some guys back on the field that haven’t been there a couple weeks,” Bonneville coach Mike Hickman said.
Zanner Cutler, Trevor Reynolds and McKay Johnson each scored for Box Elder.
Syracuse 1, Northridge 0: At Syracuse, Kyle Coffee scored in the 63rd minute and Syracuse shut out Northridge 1-0 Tuesday.
“He must have beat about three different defenders and slotted a really nice inside left post goal,” Syracuse coach Ray Parkhurst said.
Luke Grahm picked up the shutout.
Perhaps more impressive than Coffee’s goal was the play of freshman Mat Clark as an attack midfielder. According to Parkhurst, assistant coach Kelly Parke clued him in to how well Clark might be able to play at the position and it paid immediate dividends.
“He was very composed and his work rate was extremely high, but it allowed Coffee a little more freedom to move,” Parkhurst said. “I think that’s big for a freshman to come in and play like that.”
Logan 1, Roy 0: At Roy, Beto Rincon scored in the second half, lifting Logan past Roy 1-0 Tuesday.
Alan Guadarrama earned the shutout for the Grizzlies.
“They played pretty good midfield,” Roy coach Craig Charlesworth said. “They had a lot of control of the game. They had us on our heels pretty good.”
Cyprus 3, Bountiful 1: At Magna, Cyprus led 2-0 at halftime and went on to defeat flu-plagued Bountiful 3-1 Tuesday.
Bountiful coach Lou Plank is cancelling all team activities until Apr. 1 while his players recover.
“We’re dead in the water,” Plank said. “We can’t do anything.”
Tony Ahlstrom scored Bountiful’s lone goal.
Fremont 2, Weber 1 (OT): At Pleasant View, Gunner Burrell scored in the fifth minute of overtime to push Fremont to a 2-1 overtime victory over Weber Tuesday.
Brayden Searle also scored for Fremont.
Mountain Crest 2, Ogden 1: At Hyrum, Chris Barr scored in the final 20 minutes to break a 1-1 tie and push Mountain Crest past Ogden 2-1 Tuesday.
Morgan Anderson scored Mountain Crest’s other goal while Diego Diaz scored for Ogden. Jordi Castro assisted on Diaz’s goal.
East 3, Woods Cross 0: At Salt Lake City, East took a 2-0 lead into halftime and went on to defeat Woods Cross handily, 3-0, Tuesday.
Clearfield 2, Highland 1 (OT): At Clearfield, Surafel Hale scored in overtime to give Clearfield its first win of the season Tuesday, a 2-1 victory over Highland.
Mic McCord also scored for Clearfield. Both goals were unassisted.
