Clark Football: Jay Tricks, but Clark Treats

by on Oct.18, 2013, under Football


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.
