Prior to Tuesday night top-ranked Davis had escaped some close calls in keeping its perfect season going. The good luck ran out at Fremont.

Fremont held Davis to just five points in the fourth quarter as it pulled off the 50-48 upset as Boston Hadley covered a reverse lay-up with one second remaining.

The loss snapped a 28-game winning streak for 6A defending state champion Davis.

Fremont only shot 43 percent compared to 53 for Davis, but Fremont controlled the glass with 11 offensive rebounds as it enjoyed a staggering 19-1 edge in second-chance points.

Timpview hands Orem first loss

Box Score

On a night when 6A’s top-ranked team suffered it first loss, the same thing happened in 5A on another buzzer beater.

Timpview’s Etano Foster tipped in a shot at the buzzer as the T-Birds edged rival Orem 46-45 to snap the Tigers’ 16-game winning streak to start the season.

“We played a little more zone than usual to try and offset their size. We didn’t shoot extremely well from the outside but made a big 3-pointer late in the game and executed well down the stretch,” said Timpview coach Izzy Ingle

Orem led 45-44 with 2.9 seconds remaining, and when Timpview missed an off-balanced shot coming out of a timeout Foster was there to tip the ball in for the winning bucket. Replays seem to show it came after the horn, but it was called good as Timpview made sure the Region 8 race remains interesting as three teams now sit with one loss — Orem, Timpview and Alta.

Andrew Keck led Timpview with 10 points, with Ethan Stoddard leading Orem with 16 points.

Springville prevails in rivalry showdown

Box Score

It won’t win any awards for style points, but Springville and Maple Mountain turned in another rivalry classic on Tuesday.

Jake Nadauld scored 19 points — the only player to score in double figures — to lead visiting Springville to the 40-37 win over Maple Mountain, which had a game-tying 3-pointer attempt rim out at the buzzer.

“Great rivalry game tonight between Springville and Mapleton, always lives up to the billing. It was a tight game throughout Springville had some opportunities late to put the game away with free throws that they missed. Maple Mountain got a great look at a three at the end of regulation that just rimmed out. Hard fought game on both sides,” said Springville coach Justin Snell.

Springville now sits in a three-way tie atop the Region 9 standings with a 3-1 record along with Spanish Fork and Salem Hills.
