Bountiful Senior Jacob McCann on a fast break
Mills Park serves as the home field for both Woods Cross and Bountiful’s high school lacrosse teams this year, making the rivalry more interesting than ever. Last night’s game started as a back and forth match up with a 4 to 3 score leaving Bountiful in the lead.
Midway through the 1st quarter, Bountiful’s senior leaders flexed their muscle and pulled away resulting in a 18 to 6 win for the Braves. Seniors Zach Wooley, Ethan Crawford, and Jacob McCann all had multiple goals helping with the 1st half 11-0 run.
Bountiful’s senior captains, Kyle Winn and Kennedy Wolfgramm, forced multiple turnovers and both came away with 5 ground balls each. Junior attackman, Jamison Tidwell, lead all players with 5 points (3 goals and 2 assists.) April 12th, the Braves take their win streak to West High at 4:30 PM at Riverside Park.

Brighton runs record to 9-2 with solid wins vs Grandview (CO) and Bingham
March 31, the Bengals hosted Grandview HS Wolves, from Aurora, Colorado, and came away with an impressive 13-5 win over a tough Colorado team in the thick of a Colorado State Championship run.   The Wolves brought their quick moving passing and cutting game to town and were led by Salisbury commit Josh Melton who scored 3 goals and put constant pressure on the Bengal defense.
Both teams played very aggressive and contested every ground ball.   Defensively the Bengals were led by the “Senior Six:” Bryson Taylor; Nathan Kenney; Cam Folkerson; Jake Miller; Max Hoole and Dylan Pearmain who only allowed Grandview to take 14 shots the entire game.  These players combined for 10 caused turnovers and picked up 14 gb’s led by Taylor’s ½ dozen pickups.
The Bengal offense put up 36 shots peppering the Grandview goalies all night from both inside and out.  As a team, Brighton continues to not just put up a volume of shots but are firing more than 62% of their shots on cage and finished shooting an outstanding 36% for the game.  Senior middies, Dylan Pearmain and Miles Paulson led the team with 3 goals each with Pearmain adding 2 assists on the night.  The Bengal attack line of Noah Lund, Tennison Schmidt, Hunter Albert and Bubba Fairman put up a dominant performance, contributing 6 goals and 4 assists as a group.
April Fools or not, on Friday April 1, Brighton scored a season high 18 goals and defeated Bingham 18-5.  The Bengals jumped out to a quick 6-1 lead in the 1st quarter and finished the half with an 8-2 lead.  Brighton was led offensively by the usual suspects, Fairman, Schmidt, Lund and Pearmain.   Fairman put up his season best 9 goals and 3 assists for the night.  The Bengals also got a nice offensive boost from Bridger El-bakri, Justus Peterson, Kaden Garden, Kimball Reece and Jake Nydegger, who all scored a goal apiece for the powerful Bengal Offense.  However, the night belonged to Sophmore attackman, Jake Nydegger.  Nydegger who saw his first varsity goal converting a perfect feed from Fairman and turned it into a backhanded shovel goal and on the next offensive possession found a wide open El-bakri for the perfect assist.  Nydegger’s efforts were a fan favorite as the entire Bengal crowd hit their feet and gave the Sophmore some love for his first varsity goal and assist.
For the second strait game, the Bengal defense held their opponent to only 14 shots on the night.  Goalie, Houston Kraenbuhl had a solid night between the pipes with 5 saves.  Taylor Owens and Kimball Reece handled the majority of the face offs and both hit a 50% winning percentage to give the Bengals quick possessions.  The defense got new energy and production from Senior, Drew Lawson and Juniors, Cody Chase and Kauner Owen, all playing pesky, pressure defense, not allowing the Miners to get any offensive rhythm.
Brighton took off this last week from games returning to the field on Wednesday, April 13 at Highland and then back home on Friday at Bengal Stadium to host Juan Diego in a game that will showcase 2 of the last 3 undefeated teams in league play in the Utah.

Last but not least, tonight at 5:00pm, Sky View is hosting rival Logan High. Two great times in a great rivalry should make for an excellent game.
