Two-time defending Utah state champ Corner Canyon fell behind No. 2 Lone Peak 10-0 Thursday night before bouncing back to win its 33rd straight game. CC, ranked No. 1 in the High School Football America Utah Top 10, beat Lone Peak 35-25 in what may be the first of two meetings between the two schools on the road to the 6A state championship.
Corner Canyon quarterback Jaxson Dart brought the Chargers back with two long touchdown passes to Cody Hagen, who caught three TD passes for the game.
John Henry Daley’s sack and fumble recovery for a touchdown gave Lone Peak a 19-14 lead and put CC in an unfamiliar position at the half…trailing.
