Corner Canyon runs the American Fork 49-14 for the 6A State Football Championship

Corner Canyon recorded touchdowns on six consecutive orders in the second, third and fourth quarters Friday, beating the American Fork 49-14 for the class 6A football championship at Rice-Eccles Stadium.

The Chargers won the 5A championship last year before moving to 6A. American Fork lost under Title 6A for the second year in a row. Corner Canyon defeated the Cavemen 59-28 in the regular season.

Cole Hagen had 205 yards and three touchdowns, two by Noah Kjar, in the first half while the Chargers were 28-7. Corner Canyon converted three games in fourth dive on its opening record, including a 14-yard TD pass to Kjar the fourth and seventh.

The shippers were stopped on their next trip along the 17-yard AF line and Hagen was then intercepted by Peyton Wilson. But the next three possessions at Corner Canyon ended in second-quarter touchdowns and the trend continued in the second half of the year. The Chargers' lead of 42-7 with 6:49 left in the third quarter resulted in a clock on the 35-point rule.
