Cougars Give Roosevelt a Rough Time

by on Sep.07, 2014, under Uncategorized

It was a balmy 114 degrees, well, at least it seemed like it in the stands – but that didn’t affect your Clark Cougars, as they met non-district foe Roosevelt in Comalander Stadium Friday night.  Tristan Cavazos started the scoring for the Cougars when he nailed a 42-yard field goal in the first quarter, his first of the year.  Trenton Ford threw a 56-yard bomb to William Young later in the first half, and Cavazos added the extra point, giving Clark a 10-0 advantage at the half.  The defense played exceptionally well – forcing the Rough Riders to turn the ball over on downs or punt every possession of the first half.

The Rough Riders were able to grind out a scoring drive in the third quarter, but the Cougars answered in the fourth with another long pass from Ford to Young – this one a 53-yarder.  Roosevelt scored again with less than a minute left in the game to come within 3, but their on-side kick attempt failed, sealing the 17-14 victory for the “good guys”.

Your Clark Cougars will take their 1-1 record to Gus Stadium next Friday against the pass-happy offense of Laredo United.
