Jaguars kick into gear in second half again
Mill Valley is starting to distinguish itself as a second-half soccer team.
The Jaguars knocked off Basehor-Linwood 8-2 Thursday by scoring six goals in the second half.
"I am tired of having to wake up the team during the halftime talk," said Mill Valley coach Arlan Vomhof. "I would like to see us score more in the first half."
It's hard to argue with the end result, but all involved agree the Jaguars need to come out of the gate more ready to play.
"We start the games out pretty flat," said Mill Valley midfielder Dominic Rosner. "Then, in the second half, we come together and start playing strong. I guess we just come out too relaxed in the first half.
"We need to get pumped up more when we come out to play at first."
Thursday night was not any different.
Ricardo Guimardes led the Jaguars with a hat trick. Brian Smith managed two goals, while
Brian Johnson, Joey Fitzgerald and Rosner chipped in with a goal each. Johnson's tally was his eighth of the year.
Basehor opened the scoring early in the first half with a corner-kick goal.
