BYU target Isaac Wilson had a difficult game on offense (a rare occurrence for the star QB), so it was up to the Corner Canyon defense to determine the winner of the CC vs. Farmington semifinal game.

BYU commit Owen Borg stepped up at the linebacker position and had his best prep game to lead Corner Canyon to the victory.  Borg was the semifinal MVP with eight tackles, a sack, and a blocked punt returned for a touchdown.

In the Utah 5A semifinal round it was a similar story as the Timpview defense held strong to advance to the state title match on Friday.  Leading the charge was BYU commit Siale Esera who had his best game of the season with eight tackles, three tackles for loss, a sack, and a blocked field goal.

Borg and Esera will compete in Utah state title games on Friday while receivers Saimone Davis and JoJo Phillips will continue their playoff runs in Texas and California.
