Riverton • After watching Riverton’s midfield dominate play in the first half of a scoreless soccer match, Knights coach Blaine Hale had some choice words for a team that was outshot, outplayed and outhustled.

Only the quick feet and hands of Lone Peak’s senior goalkeeper Kaden Killpack kept the net clean as Riverton had several looks on runs from Kenny Marse, and a corner kick in the 28th minute that came alarmingly close to finding the goal.

» Midway through the second half, Lone Peak goalkeeper Kaden Killpack found himself on an island after Riverton’s Kenny Marse split two defenders for what appeared to be a clean shot. Killpack smothered the shot and snuffed out any thoughts of a comeback.

A reinvigorated Lone Peak midfield took over after half, pushing forward, attacking and bringing the heat with goals in the 12th, 16th and 26th minutes to earn the 3-0, Region 4 win.

"I just felt like we pressured them better and came forward like coach talked about at half," said junior midfielder Tyler Allison, who scored the first goal and assisted Zack Cromar on the second.

Lone Peak showed a flair for the unselfish, as all three goals were assisted, including the final marker from Brody Berry, who passed up a good shot to give Landon Wilson a better shot.

"No one really cares who scores and for us. It’s all about doing it for the team," Allison said.

Riverton had just two real scoring opportunities in the second half, one when the lightning-quick Marse split two defenders late, only to have his shot snuffed by Killpack, who has given up just one goal in his last six outings.

"Riverton really showed their ability to counterattack in that first half, and they were beating our midfielders to the attack," said Hale. "Kaden is just so strong back there for us, but the midfield getting into the flow and attacking was key."

Lone Peak, 3-0 in Region 4, is at undefeated Lehi on Friday, while Riverton, 1- 1 in region, hosts Bingham on Wednesday.
