SALT LAKE CITY – Weber used a last-minute Alex Johnson field goal to survive an upset bid by the plucky Farmington Phoenix.

Weber Warriors 30 @ Farmington Phoenix 27

Taking advantage of two failed Weber two-point chances in the second half, Farmington’s Easton Wright found Jake Metcalfe for a 17-yard touchdown with 2:52 remaining. The extra point made it 27-27 but Weber was able to drive into the Phoenix red zone before kicking the 25-yard game-winning field goal.
