The Jaguars dominated their season opener with a 10-1 victory over Timpview. Brady Nunnelly and Hunter Brown each scored three goals, and Jeremiah Bott added two more. Cade Wright saved 14 shots against the Thunderbirds.
In their only other regular season match on March 19, they lost to Northridge 7-5. Nunnelly scored three goals and Brown the other two in the loss.
The Jaguars went undefeated in pool play of the Gathering of the Tribes tournament March 12-13. They defeated Jordan 12-0, Viewmont 9-3 and Riverton 11-3. They lost to Park City 9-1 in the elimination round. Park City won the tournament championship by defeating Olympus 7-4.
The Jaguars are scheduled to play Westlake Tuesday, Mar 24 at Joel P. Jensen Middle School. They will then travel to Provo to face Timpview again Friday, March 27. They will then travel to Woods Cross Wednesday, April 8.
