Clark Triumphs Over O’Connor

by on Feb.21, 2014, under Soccer, Winter Sports

Clark men triumphed over third place O’Connor this evening in a fierce competition at Farris Stadium. Both teams passed well and played aggressively but Clark took the lead in the first half and finished strong. Tonight’s game was the second match between the two schools this season, Clark having beaten O’Connor 2-1 in January. This win puts Clark at six shut outs for the season; congratulations to tonight’s keepers, senior Paolo Nardi and sophomore Colby Lorenz for successfully defending Clark’s net.

 

Clark’s first goal was a successful penalty kick taken by junior Tristan Cavazos; it was his 7th goal this season and put Clark ahead, 1-0. Despite intense pressure from O’Connor, Clark rebuffed every goal attempt while trying to widen the lead. In the final minute of the game, senior John Cintron scored off of a beautiful shot past the keeper, bringing the score to 2-0. This was Cintron’s 6th goal of the season. O’Connor received two yellow cards, one for an attack on Clark’s keeper and one for poor sportsmanship; Clark received none. Clark men are now 11-2-0 (8-1 in the district).

 

Way to play, Coogs! Next game is Tuesday, 5 pm, against Stevens, on Northside Field #2.
