PCHS boys reach state lacrosse final

The eleven departing seniors on Park City High School’s boys’ lacrosse team will have the chance to give themselves and coach Ryan Sheaffer a sendoff for the ages.

The Miners beat Jordan 8-7 to advance to the program’s first-ever Utah High School Lacrosse League Division I championship game on Saturday in Viewmont High School Stadium at 7 p.m. That game will be coach Sheaffer’s last at the helm before a permanent move to Philadelphia.

Playing at Dozier Field for the third consecutive playoff game, the Miners extended their win streak to five with a win over the Beetdiggers — who lost 15-6 at Quinn’s earlier this season but had improved of late and beat Judge Memorial 9-7 in the quarterfinals.

Griffin Perkiel scored the winning goal in the game’s first overtime with just 24 seconds to go.

The Miners will go on to face Brighton after that team’s 13-5 win over Waterford in an earlier semifianal at Dozier Field on Wednesday.

The PCHS girls’ lacrosse team also reached the state semifinals, bowing out after a 17-2 loss to Alta.
