Boys: Lone Peak 16, Timpanogos 6 (User Submission)
A hard fought game from the opening draw. Lone Peak won the opening face-off, but Timpanogos was able to capitalize on a Lone Peak missed shot and score first. Early on the Lone Peak defense looked confused and slow to react to the Timpanogos’ attack. However, on the next 3 possessions, the Lone Peak offense roared back with 3 unanswered goals, never to trail again. Timpanogos tried to slow down the Knights by locking a defender off on attackman Josh Stout. In spite of this, Stout still finished the night with 6 goals and 1 assist.
Max Mcwhorler lead Timpanogos with 3 points, followed by Jack Griffith and Thomas Miles with 2 points each.
