Layton scored first on a Tyler Fox two yard run. The two-point conversion failed and the Lancers led 6-0.
Aaron Dalton’s 31 yard field goal put the Vikings on the board and right before halftime, Viewmont took the lead as Chris Bednar blocked a Layton punt and covered the ball in the end zone for a touchdown. The PAT was good to give the Vikes a 10-6 lead at halftime.
In the third quarter, Layton workhorse Devon Nippert gave his team the lead back on a five yard run and Jackson Hatch’s PAT pushing the Lancers ahead 13-10.
Dalton’s 27 yard field goal tied the game at 13.
Nippert’s 36 yard touchdown push the lead to 19-13 and Viewmont fired back to take the lead at 20-19 leading to one of the wildest finishes in Utah high school football history.
Layton was led by Nippert’s 111 yards rushing and two touchdowns and Frank Preciado’s 124 yards on 13 carries.
Bednar stood out for Viewmont with his score and stellar defensive play while Dalton’s boot accounted for eight Viking points on two field goals and two PAT’s.
