But if it’s happened before, it’s not quite as strange. An air of familiarity surrounded two crucial scores for the Brighton Bengals on Thursday and those two goals catapulted the home team to a 4-1 girls’ soccer victory over American Fork. On a now month-long winning streak, Brighton will use this win as a ticket to the Class 5A state semifinals against Davis.
