Two-time defending Utah state champ Corner Canyon, ranked No. 23 in the High School Football America 100 national rankings, won a heart-stopping 29-26 win over Skyridge, ranked No. 3 in our Utah Top 10.
With a little over a minute to play, Jaxson Dart threw a touchdown pass to Cody Hagen on a fourth-and-goal from the 4-yard line to give the Chargers a 29-26, but Skyridge didn’t give up. Skyridge drove to the Corner Canyon 5-yard line with just eight seconds to play. Instead of trying a field goal to send the game to overtime, Skyridge decided to go for the win.
Skyridge sophomore quarterback McCae Hillstead was stopped at the two yard line on a pass-run option, which gave CC the win, improving the Chargers record to 9-0.
