BOUNTIFUL – Viewmont senior forward Lucas Cawley has been away from Viewmont soccer for the past two years in order to hone his skills at both the Real Salt Lake Academy in Arizona and the Portland Timbers program in Oregon.

His training has paid off.

Cawley picked up an assist on a great pass to Mike Johnson, who scored the golden goal six minutes into the first overtime to lift the Vikings past the Davis Darts Tuesday afternoon at Viewmont High School.

“He’s a really good player,” said Vikings coach Dave Wigham. “He can make things happen, and he did it again.”

The Vikings game-winning goal was set up after Viewmont was given possession on Davis’s end of the field. Instead of attacking to the box, the ball quickly went out to Cawley, who made a turn-around move to get past a Darts defender.

Cawley gave a touch-pass to Johnson, who fired the ball past Tyler Bishop for the golden goal in the 86th minute.

“Better than going to penalty kicks,” Wigham said.

Viewmont improved to 4-0-1 on the season with the overtime win. It’s only draw came against Alta in the third match of the season. Aside from its 7-1 win over Woods Cross to open the season, each of Viewmont’s last three wins has been by a single goal.

The Vikings beat Bountiful 1-0 and Juan Diego 2-1.

“We’ve got the makings of a good team,” Wigham said. “But we’ve got a long ways to go. The kids are willing to learn, to learn, and are very coachable. They’re a good group.”

Johnson’s goal was his third this season.

The Vikings will travel to Weber High School to face the Warriors Thursday at 3:30 p.m.
