DRAPER — Zach Wilson threw for two touchdowns in his return from an ankle injury, and Corner Canyon held Jordan off the scoreboard for the first three quarters to pull away for a 31-14 win over Jordan that clinched an undefeated regular season Wednesday night at Corner Canyon High School.

Wilson, who has committed to Boise State, connected with Colton Lawson on a 71-yard pass in the first quarter that gave the Chargers a 7-0 lead at halftime and the Corner Canyon defense took it from there.

“I knew we were capable of it," Wilson told KSL Sports after the game. "We’ve got a lock-down defense, and that’s what separates us from a lot of teams. You see really high scoring teams that put up a lot of points, but don’t play as much defense. That’s what separates us; we have a really high-powered offense, but we can also play defense.”

The Chargers will host Bountiful in the first round of the Class 5A state playoffs next week.

Corner Canyon (9-0, 5-0 Region 7) made it 21-0 on a pair of touchdown runs by Tai Gonzales and Caden Johnson in the third quarter, and Wilson found Lawson again for a 22-yard score en route to a 31-0 lead.

Crew Wakley threw for a touchdown and added another on the ground in the fourth quarter to lead Jordan (6-4, 2-3).
