Wise celebrates TD #1

The Cougars started strong but a determined “brandies” team and miscues were too much to overcome as Clark lost to the broncos 39-25.

Clark stunned the Broncos on the first play from the line of scrimmage with a 55 yd. Josh Kern to Brandon Yates TD.  Then it was the defense’s turn to shine.  Jimmy Kueber stuffed a “brandies” 4th and 1 attempt and on the next bronco possession Kris Patino recovered a fumble in the end zone for a touchdown.  At the end of the first quarter it was “brandies” 0 Clark 13.

In the second quarter, the shootout began.  The broncos struck quickly making it a 13-6 game with 11:38 left ’til half.  The Cougar offense slowed down and when “brandies” got the ball back on their 12 yd. line, it only took one pitch to the right for a 92 yd. TD making the score 14-13 in favor of the broncos. Following the kickoff, the Cougars fumbled and “brandies” scored again, 21-13 in favor of “brandies”.  Ready to retaliate, Josh Kern found Austin Wise for 8 yds. for a Cougar touchdown to make it a 21-19 game with “brandies” leading at the half.

The 3rd quarter was the Cougars ultimate undoing.  The offense stalled and the broncos started the half with a 65 yd. drive ending in a TD followed by an 88 yd. drive also ending in a score.  The quarter ended giving “brandies” a 36-19 lead.

In the 4th, the broncos added a 27 yd. field goal.  The Cougars scored late on another Kern to Wise 25 yd. TD pass.  On the ensuing onside kick, the Cougars ended up recovering on the bronco 25 yd. line but could not punch it in. The final score: “brandies” 39 – Clark 25.

Defensive efforts from Colton Magarro (1 INT, 1 fumble recovery), Chris Little, Jimmy Kueber, Kris Patino, Daniel Durke, John Paul Robinson and and big sack by Alex Hunter give Cougar fans a good reason to expect a different result next week.

The Cougars are now 2-1 in district play with a game against the John Jays next.
