SANDY, Utah – The Brighton Bengals and the Weber Warriors both claimed boys soccer state titles with victories at Rio Tinto Stadium on Thursday.

Brighton took the 5A state title with a 3-2 overtime victory over Olympus while Weber grabbed the 6A crown with a 1-0 victory over Copper Hills.

Brighton Wins In OT Thriller

The Bengals clinched the championship in thrilling fashion with a goal by Braxton Jones with only 20 seconds left in the first overtime half.

London Botelho and Brandon Neeley also scored for the Bengals while Din Huremovic found the net twice for both of the Titans’ goals.

 

It was the seventh title all-time for Brighton, which also won state in 1989, 1993, 1999, 2000, 2010 and 2013.

Weber Holds Off Copper Hills

In the 6A championship, the Weber Warriors edged Copper Hills as Luke Johnson connected with Kolton Obray for a header goal in the 55th minute that was enough to secure the win.

The Grizzlies, who have been one of the top teams in the state for years but have yet to win the state championship, had a chance to tie the match up late, but Weber goalkeeper Charles Wheelwright made a great save to ice the game.

It was the second state title ever for the Warriors, who also won the state championship in 2004.

Weber and Brighton join Sky View (4A), Judge Memorial (3A) and Layton Christian (2A) as 2019 boys soccer state champions.
