BOUNTIFUL – It’s been a very successful season for both the Viewmont Vikings and the Davis County Independent Eagles hockey teams this year.
With the playoffs now within sight for both teams, the Vikings and Eagles will square off Wednesday night at 9:30 p.m. to determine the North Division champion.
The Vikings have only one loss this season, a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Uintah back on October 11. Other than that, the Vikings haven’t lost a single divisional game as they look to lock up a top seed heading into February’s playoffs.
The Vikings are led by Alex Barrus, who has 20 assists and 16 goals on the season. Jacob and Jeremy Wiser, twin brothers, also have nearly identical point totals.
Jacob Wiser has 12 goals and 13 assists heading into the final game, and Jeremy has 11 goals with 15 assists.
Their cousin, Tyler, has 12 total points this season.
The Eagles, who have a pair of losses this season, are currently second behind Viewmont for the top spot in the North Division. DCI’s non-league loss came against Utah County Independent North, 5-4, back on October 3.
Its only division loss was against Murray, a 5-1 defeat that happened on December 11.
The Eagles have won every game since, and will be looking to win its fifth straight to close out the season when they hit the ice.
Point leader Troy Quarnberg also leads the team in goals scored, netting 21 this season. His 18 assists are second only to Bernie Cosgriff, who has 19.
Weston Walker is second on the team in goals scored with 19, and Zan Hobbs is fourth in goals scored (17), assists (14) and total points (31) for the Eagles.
The high school hockey playoffs begin in February.
