Another 100+ for Larbie

The Clark Cougar varsity football team crushed the Taft Raiders 48-13 in their opening District 27-5A game.  The scoring came often and through a variety of ways, beginning with the opening drive.

Lots of Larbie was served up to the Raider defense as Kweku Larbie found plenty of room to run.  Alex Hunter was on the receiving end of one of Josh Kern’s three passing TD’s for the evening and Clark was on top 6-0 with only three minutes off the 1st quarter clock.  On the following kickoff, Taft fumbled the ball, setting up the next Cougar score.  This time Larbie got the payoff with a 5 yd. run to the endzone and a little over a minute after the Cougars’ first touchdown, the Cougars owned a 13-0 lead in the 1st.  A quick three and out for Taft gave the ball back to the Cougars and Larbie rushed for his 2nd TD of the night from 3 yds out to finish the Cougar drive and make it a 20-0 game with a little over 7 minutes gone in the 1st quarter.

Manny Menezes set up the next score for Clark with a nice 20 yd. rush to the Taft 3 yd. line.  Josh Kern’s 1 yd. dive gave the Cougars a 27-0 advantage with 7:37 left on the 2nd qtr.  Taft added a touchdown before the half  and the teams went to the locker rooms with Clark 27 – Taft 7.

The pace slowed down in the 3rd quarter although no one told the Clark defense.  Daniel Orhiunu delivered an 8 yd. sack that killed a Taft drive to the end zone.  Chris Miller recovered a Taft fumble later in the quarter that set up a Kern to Brandon Yates connection for 29 yds., giving the Cougars a 34-7 lead at the end of the 3rd.

Early in the 4th,  Kern and Yates again connected on a 62 yd. bomb for a TD and Alex Ethridge juked for a 34 yd. TD and the final Clark score.  The Cougars are now 1-2 but more importantly 1-0 in District 27-5A.  Next week they face the Marshall Rams in a home game at Farris.
