Last week, Morgan boys soccer played two games at Ogden High School due to other fields being covered by snow. The first game was a home game against the Grantsville Cowboys. Morgan’s varsity team mercy ruled their game, which means the score was 8-0, in just 60 minutes. Their goals were scored by a variety of people, but Ty Warner had two goals in just two minutes. The shutout happened because of senior goalkeeper Garrett Henderson.
JV won their game 7-0. JV only got to play a 40 minute game because they had to switch fields at the last minute. They still clearly dominated the match, and they went home winners.
Later in the week, Morgan played against Ben Lomond High School on the Ogden turf field. Varsity barely won with a score of 3-2.
Ben Lomond had an early penalty kick against goalie Henderson. Penalty kicks being one of the hardest shots to save, Henderson managed to save it and get the ball cleared. Moments later, they got a quick counter attack and scored making it 1-0 for Ben Lomond.
Morgan made a quick return to the game, and Sam Edwards scored off a cross from Owen Tolman. Warner scored a goal in the 24th minute making it 2-1 at halftime.
Just four minutes into the half, Ben Lomond scored the tying goal. Warner scored his second goal of the night later into the half for the winning goal.
JV won their game 2-0; it was short but sweet. Smith Wallace scored a goal from a Luke Francis assist in the thirtieth minute. Brandon Allgaier scored in the 42 minute with no assist. Eight minutes later the game was called because of lightning.
