Coral Glades picked up an impressive 42-6 win over Coral Springs High School Thursday night in a matchup between two city rivals in their season kick-off.

The Jaguars won for the fourth time in the past six years, beating new Coach Ian Headley and the Colts.

The win meant a lot for Head Coach Cam Thomas and his team after their playoff game against the Colts was canceled due to COVID-19.

“It feels great,” Coach Thomas said, “We haven’t beat them in the past nine games. We took this game personally because we didn’t get to play them last season.”

It was a close game early on after both teams scored first-quarter touchdowns. Jojo Rispoli rushed for a touchdown while Tyrique Gordon scored for Coral Springs on a pass from Elijah DeCastro.

Then in the second quarter, the Jaguars went off and scored three times to open their lead up to 27-6. It started with Rispoli, who finished the game with 16 takes on defense, running for another touchdown before Christian Garnett threw two of his three touchdown passes. Joshua Guerin caught both scores in the first half from 26 and 22 yards away. In the second half, Garnett connected with Joell Holmes from 34 yards to extend the lead.

Kyle Nelson added a rushing touchdown, and Carlton Boggs had a safety to round out the scoring for the Jaguars. Newcomer Richie Maston, who shined in the kickoff classic last week with three extra points and a field goal from 35-yards out, added three more extra points before Nicholas McCarthy connected on a pair.

Next, the  Jaguars will play Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High School on Friday, September 3.  Coral Springs will be back at their own field for their home opener against Coconut Creek High School on September 9.
