Sometimes, the smallest changes can have the most dramatic impact.

Heading into the 2014 season, the Valley Center varsity boys lacrosse team made one of those small changes by moving Jason Brewster from defense to offense.

Brewster, a senior who has already committed to play Division I college lacrosse after he graduates in the spring, has shown his talent and versatility in spades so far this season, as the Jaguars have outscored their opponents by a total of nearly 40 goals in their first four games of the year.

The simple change of bringing Brewster forward to attack has not only shown up in the stat column, but has had a tremendous impact on the offense as a whole, opening new opportunities for attackers Ian Leek, Jason Blasius and John Luna.

The results have been fantastic, as the Jags have won all four games so far this year, posting a total of 50 goals and holding the opposition to just 13, eight of which came in the season opener against Serra.

This week, the Jaguars played a pair of games against talented programs and came away with a pair of convincing wins.

Grossmont came to town last Tuesday and when the dust settled, the Jaguars had taken an 11–2 win.

Then on Thursday, the Jags hosted Fallbrook and cruised to a 13–2 victory.

Leek led the scoring with five goals, while Brewster added three, Blasius and Dawson Posthuma each had two and Andrew Chestnut had one.

Now at 4–0 on the season, the Jaguars have already played at University City on Monday and at home against Maranatha Christian on Wednesday. Next they play at Mt. Carmel next Monday at 7:45 p.m. and at home against San Marcos next Wednesday at 7 p.m.
