A pair of second-half goals from long passes out of the midfield lifted the Jaguars (7-6-1, 3-1-1) for this comeback victory. Cabrillo senior Josue Garcia played a ball over the top for Daniel Figueroa’s equalizer in the 57th minute, and senior Eduardo Mosqueda picked out sophomore Carlos Martinez in the 72nd minute for the game-wining goal.

“We talked (at halftime) about how they were playing flat (in the back) and that we’re faster than them and we could play balls over the top,” Martinez said.

Wilson (6-5-2, 2-1-1) took a lead in the 18th minute when sophomore Raymond Garcia drew a foul for a dangerous set piece. Senior Jared Dissman’s service deflected through the defensive wall inside the 18-yard box, and junior Alan Cornejo poked it homie at the back post.

The game was a bit sloppy and there were only 12 total shots— an even six for either side.

“This game was split up and I think we got fortunate,” Cabrillo coach Pat Noyes said. “I think it’s typical. Nothing is pretty in this league anymore. These players all know each other. They’ve played in middle school and leagues together. We just kept working.”
