Your Clark Cougars hosted the Mustangs from Jay at Farris Stadium last night. Clark got on the board early on a 73-yard run by Senior Brandon Valle in the opening minutes. Valle added another rushing touchdown in the first quarter to give the Cougs an early 14-0 lead. Jay, using some well-timed trick plays, finally got on the board, and posted a second touchdown to even the score before the end of the first quarter. Clark took a 20-14 lead into the locker room at halftime on a third touchdown run from Valle. After a fourth quarter score by the Mustangs, Clark was down 21-20, but had the ball with just over 4 minutes in the game. On the shoulders of Valle, the Cougs were able to get into field goal range, and Senior Nick Gonsalves put the pigskin through the uprights with a minute and a half left on the clock. The Clark defense held their ground, forcing Jay to turn the ball over on downs to seal the game. The Cougars will take their 3-2 District record on the road next week to Marshall at Farris Stadium.
