As the fall sports seasons come to a close, multiple Central teams were able to make a run into the postseason, one of which being the football team. The jags were able to win their way past the Augusta Orioles to advance to the regional playoff game. Their season came to a close, however, with a loss to the Goddard Lions with a score of 21-7.
Peyton Jensen, sinor wide receiver and defensive end, was satisfied with the teams spirit.
“I was proud of the way the team played throughout the whole season,” Jensen said, “Obviously things didn’t go how we wanted them to, but I’m proud of the way our team stuck together and played hard.”
The team prepared for their postseason games with intensity and dedication.
“I made sure to watch more film and prepare as best I could before the game started. Also, during practice I thought our team did a better job of doing every rep 100%. I think we were more focused and knew that wwe would be going home if we lost,” Jensen said.
The team’s final game against Goddard was an important one for the Jags. Not only did they need a win to advanced in postseason, but the team had already played the Lions earlier in the season and had lost 17-16 in overtime.
“Losing to them earlier made me want to beat them even more. Since the game was so close last time it made us all hungry for a win,” Ian Carpenter, senior offensive and defensive lineman, said.
Their previous game helped the team be better prepared for what Goddard had in store.
“I think going into that game everybody on our team thought we were going to win, and that’s a great thing for a team to have going into an important game. Along with confidence it was also cool because we already kind of knew what they were going to try to do to us and were able to plan to try to stop them,” Jensen said.
The jags hope to take the loss and come out next season even better.
