Jaguar Football Takes on Smoky Hill High School: Photo Recap

The Jaguars came back to win again after beating Smoky Hill in the playoffs last season.

As the sidelines and packed bleachers scream cheers, the ball lands into number seven’s hands and allows him to run a 49 yard pass touchdown. The varsity football team came back to win against the Smoky Hill High School Buffs for the second year in a row, after their win against them in the first playoff game of the 21-22 season. The Jaguars started the game by scoring a touchdown in the first quarter, but only received 13 points due to the punt being knocked down by the Buffs. The team then fought through the second and third quarters with no new points, but eventually scored a touchdown in the last quarter, making the Jaguars beat the Buffs 26-19.

The Jags take on the East High School Angels at Echo Park Stadium at 7 p.m. Sept. 8, after a loss to the Angels last year. Fans are asked to wear neon-colored clothes to show support.
