On Tuesday, January 15, the University Preparatory Jaguars faced the CIMS Cougars for an away game. With 50 degree weather and a wet, slippery field, the Jaguars made it out of the game taking home the trophy with a final score of 5-1.

Coach Sammy’s pregame talk finished off with the key word “focus.” When asked about how he felt deep down about the powerful story told by the coach, sophomore Antonio Robinett (#25) said, “It was a lovely speech. It definitely got the team and myself motivated.”  The Jaguar boys took that powerful message out onto the field and faced the Cougars.

Within the first two minutes of the game, sophomore Antonio Robinett (#25) scored one for the team. Exactly four minutes after that, sophomore Roy Ponce (#14) scored a goal, leaving the score at 2-0.

After fighting through the harsh cold and rainy weather, junior Leo Enriquez (#6) on the opposing team scored one for the Cougars. That did not bring down the Jaguars. Instead, it made them more determined and more aggressive. They craved the trophy and to finish off the Cougars.

Junior Edgar Morales (#4) made back to back goals for the Jaguar boys. Unfortunately, shortly after that he was removed from the game due to a slight injury from the slippery field. He stated, “I think the weather affected us a lot, especially on the field.”

Junior Luis Bonilla (#7) shared his thoughts about the dangers of a wet field and his reaction to his teammate’s injury. “I got scared when I saw Edgar got injured because he’s the key player. Playing in that weather is tough and it affects our team, especially coming into CIF. It’s scary.”

In the second half of the game, the rain was becoming harsher, and players were shivering from the cold breeze as the winds began to pick up. But, no matter the weather, junior Alexander Orduño (#11) came in and fought through the cold and scored the last and final goal of the game.

In the end, the Jaguar boys fought hard. Through the cold, rainy weather, the boys kept on working together and motivating one another to reach each others fullest potential. The end result? The Jaguar boys brought home the crown once again, destroying the Cougars on their own field.
