Tuesday, April 16th was a big night for the Jags as they played the Enloe Eagles on Senior Night. The final score was 16-4 (last time they played the Eagles, the score was 12-4). Top scorers were Tyler with 5 goals and 2 assists. Jay with 3 goals and 4 assists, and Jack Dancjek with 3 goals. Wes had 2 goals and 1 assist, and Caleb and Zander each had 1 goal.

The graduating seniors (Tyler, Wes, Webb, Zander, Isaiah Beardsley, Cali, Marc Evilevitch, Caleb, Andrew Dykes, Kevin Grenier, Brandon Lee and Jorma Kaehlert) were honored before, and after, the game, where the team and their families enjoyed Chick-Fil-A and cupcakes. Thank you to Mandy Patterson for leading the effort to create such a special evening for everyone!

There was no down time for the Jags, though, as they faced the Green Hope Falcons the next night in a make-up game. The Jags had to go onto the field without Jay Cohn, who sustained a hand injury from the night before. It was an intense game. The final score was 7-6, with Tyler scoring 3 goals and having 3 assists. Zander had 1 goal and 1 assist, while Caleb, Brower and Wes each scored a goal. Liam also had an assist.

Wes continued playing offense/defense with 11 ground balls and 5 caused turnovers. Webb had 2 caused turnovers, while Jack D. had 4 ground balls and 1 caused turnover. In addition to his assist, Liam was 100% on the faceoff dot, going 17 out of 17 with 8 ground balls,

The Jags ended the week playing the Leesville Highscool Pride for the second time this season, winning 4-3 (they won 13-8 the last time they played the Pride earlier this month). While the loss of Jay continues to be felt, the Jags held strong and did not let Leesville get too far ahead. Tyler had 3 assists, Caleb had 2 goals, and Zander and Harrison Baublitz had 1 goal each.

Defensively, Wes had 7 ground balls and 4 caused turnovers, Webb had 5 ground balls and 1 caused turnover, while Owen Honnold had 2 caused turnovers. Isaiah had 3 ground balls and 1 caused turnover, Trent Smith and Jack D. had 2 ground balls and 1 caused turnover each. Brower had 3 ground balls and Caleb had 4 ground balls. 


On goal, Cali had 15 saves and an 83.3% save percentage. He passed the Athens All-Time saves record and now holds it with 365 career saves and counting! 

Other players reaching career milestones include Liam with 500 faceoff wins and Tyler passed the school record for career points (229), which was held by Reid Koonce (class of 2019). Congratulations to Cali, Liam and Tyler for such incredible achievements during their highschool career!!

The Jags head into their last week of games before the playoffs, starting with Cardinal Gibbons at home on April 23 and ending with Broughton (away game) on April 25.
