The Clark boys and girls soccer teams took care of business against Taft on Friday winning big in both games. The girls won after playing a tight first half which ended with the Cougars ahead 2-1. Clark added three goals in the second half to come away with a whopping 5-1 victory. It’s a significant win with the Raiders just ahead of Clark in the district standings. As usual the Cougars spread the scoring around with goals from Blair Socha, Alyssa Jacobs, Monique Rempel, Chloe Trevino and Lexi Platz. Frances Moore came up with two assists along with one each from Cindi Duke, Socha and Trevino.  Clark’s district record is now 7-4-0 and 11-7-2 for the season.

CCS received details of the boy’s 3-0 victory over Taft from Caryn Moir:

Clark men rolled over Taft Friday night at the Northside fields, but the game was close until the final 10 minutes. Senior Manolo Garcia (#1) scored for Clark midway through the first half and the Cougars held the Taft Raiders until halftime despite aggressive play. The second half started in the same way, with Taft playing hard. Both teams had a chance to show off their passing skills but Clark held off the Raiders while trying to score again. Clark’s second goal came when #8, senior Garrett Berry assisted #6, senior Jaron Pineda, with putting it in the net. Shortly after that, #17, senior Chimo Elizondo, scored the Coogs’ final goal, sealing the win for Clark. As always, the win was a team effort with keeper Preston Campbell creatively blocking a shot despite the stadium lights making it hard to see the ball. Taft took their shot and keeper Campbell, a junior, nabbed the ball and held it outside of the goal despite momentum carrying his body past the goal line. Number 2, junior Andre Garcia, #4, junior John Cintron and #18, junior Chris Pantaleon, played hard, helping keep offensive pressure on the Raiders. Clark’s aggressive play resulted in two yellow cards, on #1, Manolo Garcia and #4, junior Angus Moir.
Both teams have open dates on March 5th and will play again on March 8th against Brandeis at  Northside field #1. The girls play at 5:00 and the boys at 7:00.
Way to go COOGS!!!
