On April 25th there was a junior high boys soccer game between University Preparatory Jags and the Sims Cougars.

Truth Reed and Dejaneira Valenzela both agreed that “The boys game was better than the girls because they played more aggressively and they are more competitive.” There were plenty of times when boys would trip or slide through the field.  There was this one time when the goal keeper got injured because another player slid into him. They had to take a time out and switch players.

Dejaneira Valenzela was one supporter and she was there to support her brother, Yahir Martinez. “There were times when I thought the Jags would loose the game but they didn’t.” Truth Reed said,  “I had no doubt that we would lose. I knew we would win.”

At the end of first half of the game the score was 3-0 with the Jags taking the lead. The team could thank #8 Diego Gutierez the eighth grader for those amazing goals. In the last half of the game #8 Diego Gutierez #15 Jeremy Vasquez and #12 Yahir Martinez made a goal to up the score. There were two goals made by the Cougar’s and that left them at the final score 7-2. At the end of the game parents were screaming and cheering for the Jags.
