Valley teams all fall on first day of girls state soccer tourney

It was a rough day for Cache Valley teams at the 4A girls soccer state tournament Tuesday.

Despite two of the three local teams hosting first found games, all three school suffered losses in the first round of the state tournament.

Highland 2, Logan 0

The Rams capitalized on two Logan miscues early in the second half to score back-to-back goals a minute apart to shock the Grizzlies at Crimson Field.

<span>Logan finished the season 12-5-0 overall and 10-2-0 in Region 5 to earn the region championship.</span>

<span>East 1, Mountain Crest 0</span>

Hosting the Leopards, the Mustangs were unable to find the back of the net and East put away the game-winner in the 61st minute.

Mountain Crest had its chances to equalize, but the Mustangs’ offense was unable to crack a stingy Leopards defense.

The Mustangs finished the season 9-5-3 overall and tied for second in Region 5 behind the Grizzlies with a 6-3-3 record.

Clearfield 1, Sky View 0

The only valley team playing on the road in the state tournament, the Bobcats were unable to pull off the win, giving up a goal to Lexi Taylor in the first half.

Taylor’s goal proved to be the game-winner as neither team would find the net again and the Bobcats saw their season end at the hand of the Falcons.

Sky View finished the season 8-5-4 and tied for second in the region with Mountain Crest after going 6-3-3.
