Boys soccer defeated Blue Valley Northwest with a 2-1 score on Tuesday, Sept. 25.

With 11 minutes left in the first half, sophomore Quinten Blair scored the first goal of the game. At the end of the first half the Jaguars were winning 1-0. Being up in the first half gave senior Jake Ashford the motivation to finish the second half strong.

“We were playing well at the end of the first half so I just wanted to go finish it and get the win,” Ashford said. “I have a couple friends on this team, so it was nice to beat them as well.”

According to senior Baith Abdullah, the second half ended up more challenging due to weather conditions.

“We were playing against the wind [in the second half] so we knew it was going to be a challenge to get another goal,” Abdullah said. “Our biggest motivation was not letting up a goal and try to score as many goals as we can.”

During the second half, BVNW scored a goal at the 31 minute mark, but Ashford quickly returned, scoring the final and winning goal of the game with 20 minutes left. Scoring the goal made Ashford feel “fantastic.”

“It put us back up top,” Ashford said. “I had a couple chances earlier in the game that I had missed so it felt great.”

Ashford believes the Jaguars started out strong in the first half but struggled in the second half.

“[In the] first half, we played a lot better,” Ashford said. “[In the] second half, we were a lot more panicked. We were just trying to survive. It wasn’t bad — we won. So, I’ll take it.”

Boys soccer plays again this Thursday, Sept. 27 at Blue Valley North.
