COUGARS WIN, ADVANCE

by on Mar.02, 2012, under Basketball

For the first time in 14 years the Clark Cougars will play in a Regional final basketball game hoping to take the school where it’s never been before – the State Tournament. The 58-51 semi-final victory over Laredo Alexander came after a slow start in the opening period for Clark. Down 7-11 after one, the Cougars out scored the Bulldogs 18-10 in the second period to take a 25-19 lead into the halftime locker room. Up 37-32 going into the final period the Cougars gave the Clark crowd some nervous moments, but never lost control of the game, building a 12 point lead with two minutes remaining. Those last two minutes saw that lead reduced to four with just 25 seconds left on the clock, but the Cougars persevered and closed out the victory. Adam Perez led the scoring with 24, Travis Matthews had 11 and Carter Josephs 10 points.

Up next is a familiar foe, the Warren Warriors. Clark was unable to beat Warren in the regular season, but their last meeting, on January 24th, was an overtime thriller that ended 65-62.

The All-NISD regional final will take place at noon on Saturday back in the UTSA Convocation Center. Time to show up LOUD and PROUD Clark, Texas! See you at the game!
