by on Mar.01, 2014, under Soccer, Winter Sports

Whoop Whoop! On another beautiful south Texas night, the Clark men dominated the soccer pitch, beating Taft 6-1. Clark junior Tristan Cavazos got the party started at the 21st minute, 1-0. After five minutes of constant pressure on Taft’s keeper, the Taft defense made a tactical error and gave away a penalty kick. Clark’s sophomore Jake Peterson put it in the net, 2-0. Three minutes before the half, senior Chris Pantaleon passed the ball to senior John Cintron, who then scored and put Clark at 3-0 in time for the half.

Taking the field after halftime, Clark continued to rule the field. At the 56th minute, Chris Pantaleon made a beautiful run down the field and ended it with a clean shot, 4-0. Eleven minutes later, junior Diego Sepulveda skinned by Taft to put Clark’s fifth goal into the net. Shortly after, junior Colin Segura passed the ball to freshman Javi Martinez, who scored again for Clark, 6-0. Taft rallied to put the ball in the net, putting the final score at 6-1.

This game ended Clark’s shut out streak (6 games straight) but their record is still strong at 10-1 in district play. Tuesday’s game is a bye, so the Coogs get the night off. They’ll next take the field against Brandeis, Friday 3/7 at 7 pm, Gus Stadium.
