Boys Varsity Soccer · Boys Varsity Soccer Team Take First Area Win!

On a cold, windy night the Jags found a reason to smile with an important area win over the 2nd ranked Mountain Brook Spartans. The action was end to end throughout the first half til the Jags opened the scoring with 8 minutes remaining in period. After winning a rebound from the top of the box, William Tidwell sent in a low cross which was redirected by Preston Hamilton into the back of the net. It was Hamilton’s fifth goal of the season. The Jags tried to hold their lead throughout the second half until Mountain Brook’s Austin Davis headed a cross from a free kick in the Jags net with 20 minutes remaining in the game. Each team tried to find the winning goal, but it was not to be as penalty shootout would decide the winner. Yusef Hamid, Jonavan Arguedas, Preston Hamilton, William Tidwell, and Daniel Olvera scored on all five kicks for the Jags, securing the 5-4 win via kicks from the mark. Brian Alba was in goal for the win for the Jags. Next game for the Jags is another area tilt this Friday night at home vs Vestavia Hills HS at 7:30pm. Come out to support your Jags!
