Strong Second Half Propels Darts Past Lakers

The Davis Darts scored 10 second half goals while holding Bonneville to only 2 en route to a 14-6 victory on Tuesday in Kaysville.
The beginning of the game was close with Bonneville taking a 2-0 lead on goals by Sean Camp and Boston Dumas. Davis answered with a man-up goal by Bryon Deters who capitalized on a loose ball in front of the crease, scooping it up and dumping it in.
Davis tied the game at 2 on a goal by Anthony Sharp. Sharp came into the game averaging 5 points per game and had 20 goals and 5 assists on the season. Both teams traded goals and then the Lakers Kobe Davis scored with 28 seconds left in the half. Just as the Lakers felt they could take a lead into halftime, Davis answered on the ensuing face-off when Palmer Brophy won the draw and took led a fast break, finding Sharp on the wing who slotted it in the back of the net.
The third quarter began the same way it ended: with a Brophy face-off win, fast break and goal by Sharp, giving Davis a 5-4 lead. Davis added three more goals to its total including a shorthanded goal to make the score 8-4. Bonneville called a quick timeout, regrouped and quickly scored. The Lakers were hoping to build on the momentum, but Davis shut it down, reeling off two more goals. Bonnevilles Derek Johnson scored on a nice wrap around from X, but Davis continued to play great defense and scored four straight goals to close out the game.
“We finally woke up in the second half,” said Davis Head Coach Trevor Yocom. “It felt like we were sleepwalking in the first half.”
Sharp added to his season totals with 4 goals and 3 assists. Goalie Nathan Norton had 11 saves behind the close defense and d-mid lines who allowed the fewest goals in a game so far this season. The Lakers were led by Johnson and Davis who had 2 goals each. Bonneville leading scorer Kade Weathers had 2 assists to improve to 12 goals and 10 assists on the season. Lakers goalie Hunter Combe had 12 saves. The Davis face-off men went 13 of 21.
Davis will face Fremont on April 5 while Bonneville takes on Waterford on Friday.
