SANDY – The Viewmont Vikings girls’ soccer team made its fourth straight appearance in the 5A title game Friday night at Rio Tinto Stadium.
But instead of winning back-to-back titles, Viewmont fell for the third time in four championship games. The match was won by the Brighton Bengals in a 1-0 battle.
The lone goal for the Bengals wasn’t scored until the second half, when a set piece by Sydney Myers went over the Lady Vikings wall and past an outstretched Haley Johnson for the 1-0 win.
Myers’ goal was scored in the 64th minute, and her shot came from just outside the scoring area.
Viewmont gave itself a few late chances to tie the game, but were turned away by Brighton goal keeper Tamaryn Braun.
