Oh dear.

Who lost the Corner Canyon Chargers on the same night they had the chance to break the state’s all-time record for consecutive wins on their bingo card? The committee of one certainly did not.

However, that won’t change their position in the leaderboard this week as they are still the favorites to win the 6A state title. And between now and the playoffs, it stands to reason that they’ll be fixing their game’s problems.

Meanwhile, Lone Peak, who beat Corner Canyon, is in the top five thanks to the victory. Near the bottom of the standings, three teams with seven consecutive winning streaks advanced and two teams came in the standings behind impressive performances.
