Jaguars News · Boys Soccer Beat Oak Mtn in 1st Round of Playoffs

Tuesday was a beautiful night to play the first round of the AHSAA playoffs. Spain Park HS hosted Oak Mountain HS on a hot night and before a big crowd. The game was a back and forth affair with both teams fighting for possession of the ball and trying to create chances. The game was even with Spain Park generating 11 shots and Oak Mtn creating 9 shots of their own. Finally the Jags found the winning goal with 1:13 left in the game when junior Alan Melendez received a pass from Drake Tabor and was able to turn his man to rifle a shot near post to beat the Oak Mtn goal keeper. The Jags were able to stave off an Oak Mtn attack and preserve the 1-0 win. Chase Tilashalski made 6 saves in goal to secure the win. The Jags advance to the second round to play Grissom HS this Friday or Saturday. Details are to be announced later this week. Go Jags!
