For the Lone Peak Knights on Thursday afternoon, the best defense was a good offense.

Lone Peak girls’ soccer moved to 2-0 on the season with a hard-fought win on the road, outlasting the Farmington Phoenix to pull away in the second half with a 3-0 victory in nonregion play. Farmington fell to 1-1.

The score was 1-0 Lone Peak at the half thanks to some impressive defense by Farmington, led by a stellar effort from junior goalkeeper Emmy McKeon, who had nearly a dozen deflections and saves throughout the game.

“It was a good tough game,” Lone Peak coach Shantell Jolley said. “We knew coming up here, it was gonna be close, it was gonna be a challenge both ways. We know these northern team are always a good tough game for us.”
