Wasatch defeated Bountiful 2-1 in an energetic, physical and fast paced game. Bountiful’s field is short and wide. It lead to a lot of offensive opportunities by each team, almost like a ping pong match.

In the 14th minute Carlos Vargas scored from a beautiful free kick, 25 yards out. A Bountiful foul created the close opportunity. There were plenty of fouls by both teams that created multiple free kicks. In the 23rd minute the Wasps went up 2-0 with a fantastic header by defender, Harper Brown, off of a corner kick. Brooks Downy had the assist.

The second half had an energetic home team that put more pressure on Wasatch’s back line. It resulted in a goal, 70th minute. A furious last five minutes was repelled by a wall of defenders. Jaxon Bridge came up big with a fabulous save, throwing his body in front of a bullet.

Wasatch continued undefeated with a 4-0-1 record.
