#3 does not work. You could say "I jumped and caught it."
#6 The coach told us = past tense so before the game starts (present tense) is not a good sequence of tense. You might say "before the game started." Then it is past tense with past tense.
#7 through 10 are grammatical but #7 is very long and cumbersome.
To answer your question, yes they mean the same thing.
