Curious about how each team reached the quarterfinals? We’ve got you covered there, too. Here’s our reports from Monday’s opening-round games.

Kearns wore down Spanish Fork to open the day. The Cougars earned their first playoff win since 1972.

Orem downed Box Elder in the day’s second game. It was a bit of redemption for the Tigers, who fell to Logan in the first round last year.

Roy rallied from eight points down in the last five minutes to beat Skyline. The victory was even more impressive for the Royals considering they didn’t have star Brekkott Chapman, who was suspended for the game.

Springville survived a late scare to get past Judge Memorial. The Bulldogs had the ball with 22 seconds left anda cahcne to tie or force overtime, but the Red Devils’ defense snuffed out the possession.

Bountiful had little trouble getting past Provo. Jeff Pollard finished with a double-double, recording 14 points and 14 rebounds.
