The Skyridge girls lacrosse team had steamrolled through the season since losing the opener to state #1 Park City, but Thursday night (May 26) the Falcons met their match as they fell to #2 Mountain Ridge 11-9 in the 6A championship final at Zion’s Bank Stadium in Herriman.
Skyridge collected the silver trophy and finished an outstanding season with a 17-2 overall record.
The title game was close from the beginning, but the Sentinels had the Falcons on their heels for most of it. They were up 3-2 about 15 minutes into the game and although the margin widened and narrowed several times, Mountain Ridge never trailed after that.
The Sentinels had a 6-3 advantage at the break and were up 11-7 with about 10 minutes to play. Skyridge closed the gap but couldn’t overcome it.
