COTTONWOOD HEIGHTS — Two days after knocking off top-ranked Alta, the third-ranked Bengals were brought back to earth with a 2-0 loss to Jordan on Thursday. Amanda Feight scored twice to trigger the Beetdiggers upset.

The game figured to be a blowout considering Alta beat Jordan 7-1 last week, but that was hardly the case. Jordan improves to 1-1 in Region 3 while Brighton falls to 2-1.


CLEARFIELD 3, LAYTON 2: After trailing 2-0, the Falcons rallied for three goals to pull off the upset of fourth-ranked Layton. Jennie Smith scored Clearfield's first goal, and Sharcy Bennington got two goals in the last 10 minutes. Amber Strickland and Melanie Adams recorded Layton's goals.

SKYLINE 2, NORTHRIDGE 0: Courtney Kjar's first half goal and Lindie Theurer's second half tally propelled the Eagles to a shutout victory over the Knights.
