The Pirates, who were the Region 19 champions, went scoreless in the second quarter and trailed Valley 20-9 at halftime but used a strong second half to take a 37-35 victory.

Justin Johnson led Green River with 13 points, while Chase and Colby Spencer each had 10 for Valley.

Rich 59, Piute 47: Bracken Pinder and McKay Jarman each scored 15 to lead Rich past Piute in a battle of teams that finished in second place in their regions. Anthony Hardman and Ty Jessen each scored 11 for Valley. Rich will meet Green River at 8:30 p.m. Thursday in the quarterfinals.

Layton Christian 74, Panguitch 57: Panguitch became the third Region 20 team to lose in three games as the 1A tournament approached the half-way mark of a marathon first day when eight games are scheduled.

Tabiona 45, Tintic 38: Tabiona, the third place team from Region 21, pulled the day’s first upset by knocking off Region 18 champion Tintic. Tabiona will now meet Layton Christian Thursday at 7 p.m. in the championship quarterfinals.
