American Fork 2, Skyridge 2 (American Fork wins shootout, 5-3)

Down a few players, American Fork went to double overtime and claimed a tough win in a shootout over Skyridge in Region 4 play to avenge their earlier loss to the Falcons and move to 5-2 in region play. Lila Millward and Estee Schneider each scored in regulation.

“We played hard against a good opponent today. We came out a little banged up and missing players to illness. We battled hard and we kept fighting through some rough play at times. I am happy for the kids that came off the bench to make a difference today. Also very impressed with our keeper and back line. They all made big saves. We are excited for the weekend and the bye next week to get some much needed rest and recovery,” American Fork coach Derek Dunn said.
