    I thought both teams look a little rusty at the beginning and simply played boom ball soccer. Both teams settled down a little in the second half. The indirect free kick that led to Bountiful's goal was questionable. Both players were playing the ball and the referee was out of position 30 yards from the play when she made the call.

    In the overtime, it was all Viewmont. Viewmont settled down and controlled the ball and the game. Coach Landon must have straightened some strategy out on the white board or the girls just started to hear him. Karrie's game-winning strike was technical and clinical. Elle did a great job anchoring the defense.

    It will be interesting to see how Bountiful fares today against Alta. Bountiful will have the benefit of having a game under its belt and getting rid of first-game jitters and mistakes. Let's see if Alta suffers from the same rust (and the loss of All-Staters Murphy, Selman, and Campbell), or simply picks up where Alta left off last year.

    Karrie is my cousins daughter. Good job.
