It was a party at Layton High on Friday night. The Lancers were unveiling a new turf field for the home fans, but the celebration lasted three plays into the game.
The Bees took the opening kickoff, ran a play, and then Jeremy Kaleikini threw a perfect 70-yard scoring strike to Conner Stevenson. Less than 15 seconds into the game and the Bees were rolling on the way to a 39-14 win over the Lancers.
