Game Recap

Once again, an exciting game between Wasatch and #2 ranked Timpanogos. The last time these two teams played resulted in an OT victory by the Timberwolves. The second game was very similar, with another 3-2 victory for Timpanogos.

The Wasps were pumped up and ready to play on senior day for the Timberwolves. In the 17th minute of play, Quincy Downey sent a beautiful cross to her cousin, McKell Gagon which was promptly one touched into the back of the net. Timpanogos continued to press forward but Wasatch had the run of play in the first half.

In the second half Wasatch continued their offensive push with a second goal, this time McKell Gagon to Quincy Downey from a corner kick. With a two goal lead Wasatch seemed to be on their way to victory.

In the 61st minute the Timberwolves scored their first of three rapid goals with a forward challenging three Wasatch defenders and then finished with a goal. The defense had been playing fantastic repelling each attack, either Hannah Johnston with great saves or the defenders with patience and fronting the attackers.

The Timberwolves continued with a relentless attack when a foul just outside the penalty area resulted in a fantastic goal from a direct free kick. The third goal was scored in the 67th minute similar to the first Timpanogos goal.

At that point, Wasatch began a desperate push for the tying goal. It seemed like much of the last ten minutes of the game were spent in front of the opponents goal with numerous breakaway opportunities. Each of the three final breakaways ended with the Timberwolve GK making a great save.

The players played their hearts out, only once again to finish another Region 8 game with a close loss. The players are resilient and will come out against the last Region 8 opponent Springville this next week.

The winner of senior night at Wasatch will be playing the first place team from Region 6 in the 5A State Soccer Tournament.

Game Recap

The last time Wasatch played Skyridge at their place, it was a 3-1 victory for Skyridge that could have been worse. However, at Wasatch, the Wasps defeated the Falcons 1-0.

Right from the beginning Wasatch was the aggressors on the offensive attack. In the 7th minute of play Quincy sent a long pass outside to Mickey Scovil who then dribbled down the right side of the field and sent a beautiful, flighted cross to the penalty spot. Quincy had begun a run down the middle of the field and timed a perfect header into the back of the net.

The first half would end without any more scores. It was an evenly played game after the first goal.

The second half began with Skyridge on the offensive but Wasatch was able to repel every attack. Once again Hannah Johnston and the defense performed as a unit and preserved the shutout. The victory was the second 1-0 result in a row.

Game Recap

The Wasatch Girls Volleyball team started strong, but couldn’t maintain enough consistency and lost a tough home match to Springville, 3-0. The Wasps’ Tori Dorius had 5 kills and 2 blocks, Brynli Buehler added 4 kills and 2 blocks and Jen Lythgoe had 14 assists, 3 kills and 6 digs.

The Wasps still led 22-18, but went on another error spree and had 3 errors in the next 5 plays to let the Devils tie it at 22-22. Wasatch won the next point, but then had another two errors to give the game away. Overall in the match, the WHS hitters had 20 kills but 26 errors, for a team hitting percentage of -.065.

Game Recap

A must win for Wasatch to have a chance to qualify for the state tournament turned into a nail biting, competitive, drama filled game at Bulldog Stadium in Provo. Wasatch controlled the offensive opportunities but found it tough to break down eight and nine players packing in the defensive third of the field for Provo. Three or four great opportunities were thwarted by a swarm of defenders and an excellent goalkeeper. The first half ended with the score 0-0.

The second half began like the first but this time Myia Hoggan scored in the 47th minute with a beautiful long shot in the upper left V of the net from a great assist by Mickey Scovil. The Wasps looked much crisper with passing and opportunities as getting used to the turf helped.

The Provo Bulldogs did not lie down and give up. They re-energized themselves and came back strong and physical. The play in the second half was very physical as both teams were fighting for the must win. Wasatch was called for eleven fouls, many in the second half while Provo responded with ten fouls of their own, many in the second half.
Provo would not back down.

Even though Wasatch controlled the game, Provo did have a couple of dangerous counter attacks on goal. With about ten minutes left, a Wasatch defender hooked the foot of the Provo forward and the Bulldogs were awarded a penalty kick. Surely it looked like the game would be tied.

As the player approached the ball, Hannah Johnston made the decision to stay in the middle of the net and was able to make the save from the penalty kick. Euphoria erupted from the Wasp bench as the win would surely be preserved.

It just set the tone for more excitement. The game really turned more physical and both teams had several yellow cards administered. With five minutes left a Provo player was issued a ‘red’ card and they were forced to finish with only nine field players and the GK.

It was a great, needed win.

Game Recap

Another exciting Wasatch/Maple Mountain soccer game. Every game seems to be full of excitement and last minute drama to determine the outcome. This was no exception.

Anna Pickering of Maple Mountain scored her first of four goals in the 9th minute. Wasatch answered right back with a long goal by Addy Larsen in the 13th minute. It looked like a wild shoot out would ensue. It did but Wasatch would not wake up offensively until the second half. Anna scored two more goals in the 16th and 19th minutes of the first half. With the score 3-1 in Maple Mountains favor it looked like Wasatch was in for a long afternoon.

At the beginning of the second half, after a formation change and team visit, the Wasps came out firing. In the 42nd minute, just into the second half, Quincy Downey had a break away in which she was fouled in the penalty box. She quickly put it away to draw Wasatch within a goal, early in the second half. At the kick off by Maple Mountain, Wasatch had a lull and Anna Pickering scored her fourth goal within 30 seconds of the Wasp goal.

This seemed to fire up the Wasatch team as the next 25 minutes of play were a dominating display of offensive opportunities. However, there seemed to be a magnet on the Maple Mountain goalkeepers jersey. Three breakaways resulted in the GK snuffing out the potential tying and winning goals. Wasatch did score their third goal with less than two minutes left as Myia Hoggan tucked the ball away.

Once again, opportunities to win the close, competitive game were not realized by the Wasps.
