On Thursday, January 31st, the University Prep Jaguar boys won an away game right before CIF’s against Academy of Academic Excellence (AAE) with a final score of 5-1 taking home the trophy once again.

Play this game like this is your first CIF game.” Coach Sammy started with a pregame motivational speech. His words traveled through each of the boys right before they were to head out.

There wasn’t any time for the Jaguar boys to mess around as they were about to enter into the CIFs. “The field seemed as if it was not built well, and even with the rain pouring in, I felt confident for myself and my team. I knew we could still beat them,” said sophomore Oscar Serrano (#15) right before the game started.

The boys played with their minds set on one goal from the start of the whistle, which was to crush the Knights and successfully enter the CIFs the following week. As two minutes into the first half flew by, junior Alexandre Padilla (#17) makes one into the net. With 56- degree weather and a rain shower, the Jaguars needed to stay focused to win this game.

The AAE Knights scored one into the goal, leaving the score at 1-1. However, this did not bring down hope for the Jaguars. Moments later as the rain began to get heavier, sophomore Antonio Robinett (#23) swoops in and scores one for the team leaving the first half with a final score of 2-1.

After a discussion during half time, the Jaguar Boys had taken one key message onto the field which was to ignore the weather and to go out there and play with their all their heart and souls. They did just that and moments into the second half, junior Alexandre Padilla (#17) makes one into the net.

Halfway through the game, the rain picked up, and the temperature kept dropping making it more difficult and distracting for the players. Several players had slipped on the grass due to the rain and were constantly being taken out and being put back in. Besides the events, the energy did not decrease. Junior Edgar Morales (#4) picked up his pace making one into the net assisted by sophomore Jesus Martinez (#19).

Moments later, sophomore Oscar Serrano (#15) scores the last and final goal of the game leaving the final score, 5-1. “It was my first goal of the whole season, so it was pretty exciting. It will probably be my only goal but, hopefully, I can score another one during CIF’s to help my team out.” Serrano gleamed.

Once again, the Jaguar boys brought home another trophy by working together and making each other stronger. With hard work and dedication, they have successfully made it to the next step which was CIFs. The Jaguar boys are ready to fight for more victories and show everyone how strong of a team they are.
