WOODS CROSS 41, VIEWMONT 16: Sean Barton had 110 yards rushing on nine carries and two touchdowns, and teammate Skyler Farnes was 10-for-19 passing for 170 yards and TD as the Wildcats officially announced themselves as a serious contender in 4A this year.

AMERICAN FORK 26, CEDAR 14: Following a 45-minute lightning delay, American Fork's Shayden Luker returned the opening kickoff 85 yards for a touchdown and set the tone as the Cavemen built a 20-0 lead and then hung on after Cedar cut the lead to 20-14 in the fourth quarter.

BONNEVILLE 34, OGDEN 0: Casey Black led the Bonneville defense with an interception, and a 21 point first quarter left Ogden in the dust at home. Brock Kap rushed for a pair of the Lakers touchdowns, while Braxton Stofferahn threw just one TD reception to Jaydn Peck.

Blake Barney posted a stellar performance with a 66-yard touchdown pass to Drew Batchelor and an 11-yard rushing touchdown of his own. Teammate Taylor Berry rushed for two touchdowns as well in the win. Springville was unable to rally in the second and third quarters, and the last ditch effort was too little, too late.
