A big block by Trevon Snoddy proved pivotal at the end of Tuesday’s overtime thriller between Region 4 rivals.
LEHI — A big block by Trevon Snoddy led to a breakaway lay-in by Duncan Reid to seal a nail-biting 59-56 overtime win for Skyridge over Region 4 rival Corner Canyon on Tuesday.
Reid led the way for the Falcons, scoring a game-high 23 points scored to fend off what proved a resilient Charger team that gave the home team all it could handle.

Gardner’s team came out rolling in the first half, building a quick 13-3 lead midway through the first quarter before going into the break up 32-20. The Falcons did all their work inside and in the midrange game, as all 32 points scored came with just one made 3-point shot — a rare feat in this day and age of basketball.
“It just sort of worked out that way to start,” Gardner said. “We like to shoot the 3, but the opportunities were elsewhere, and we did well taking what was given us in that first half.”
