by on Feb.15, 2014, under Soccer, Winter Sports

Clark played Marshall Wednesday, shutting them out 1-0 thanks to a very early goal by freshman Luis “Javi” Martinez. With several players battling colds, Clark was down but not out and managed to hold Marshall for the rest of the game.
Friday night against Holmes found the Coogs back in good form and the Cougars shut out Holmes, 2-0. Going into the game, Holmes was in 3rd place in District play while Clark was in 2nd. Friday night’s game could have reversed District rankings but Clark dominated the field and maintained their position.
Clark’s first goal again came in the first few minutes, with senior Gus Moir assisting junior Tristan Cavazos on a corner, 1-0. Before half time senior Fernando Maya neatly put the ball in the net from a free kick at midfield. While Clark didn’t score in the second half, they kept the pressure on Holmes and maintained their lead. Clark received numerous free kicks and Holmes received a yellow card.
Next game is against Warren at Gus Stadium, 5 pm on Tuesday 2/18.
