BOUNTIFUL — With the Region 1 title already firmly in their hands, the Vikings game against the Davis Darts Monday was a non-factor for them.

However, a pair of goals by senior Brock Buckway and a pair of assists by teammate Justin Allen proved to be enough as the Vikings beat the Darts 2-1 in overtime.

The win helped the Vikings remain unbeaten with only one game remaining in the regular season.

Both goals by Buckway were set up by Allen, who was the recipient of free kicks in order to set up the goals.

Buckway’s first goal came in the 45th minute just after the second half started, and gave the Vikings some new life by tying the game at 1-1.

After Allen was given the chance at a free kick following a Darts penalty, he set up the kick to go just beyond the Davis net.

At the net, Buckway fought his way through the crowd and fired his shot past Mitch Jensen to tie the game.

Buckway’s second goal looked very similar to the first, as the play was initially set up with Allen getting another free kick.

With the ball set up just past mid-field, Allen’s kick sailed right back into the penalty box, where it eventually found the foot of Buckway again.

Buckway took his shot and the ball sailed over the outstretched Jensen for the game-winner.

Both teams had a very aggressive approach early in the contest, as each was given a few good opportunities at the initial goal in the first half.

After three shot attempts from both sides failed to yield a goal in the first 20 minutes, Davis’ Chance Parker was able to find the back of the Vikings’ net for the Darts only lead of the game.

On the goal, Parker freed himself from a couple of Vikings’ defenders before getting the ball from one of his teammates.

Parker fired his shot past Viewmont’s Hayden Blackburn for the 1-0 lead.

Davis threatened a few other times in the closing minutes to extend on its lead, however, Blackburn kept the ball out of the net and the Vikings had to settle for the one-goal disadvantage at the time.

Buckway’s pair of goals gave him just his third and fourth goals of the season for the Vikings as 12 members of the Viewmont squad were honored as part of senior day.

Allen, another senior, finished the game without a score but still had a pair of assists to help the Vikings stay unbeaten.

Viewmont (13-0-2) will face Syracuse on the road for its final game of the regular season, while Davis (10-4-1) will travel to Clearfield to finish off its regular season.

A win for the Darts could solidify a No. 3 spot out of Region 1 heading into the state 5A playoffs, which begin next Tuesday, May 17.
