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

The Clark men beat O’Connor, 2-1, in their season opener at Northside Fields tonight. Jake Peterson, #10, scored for Clark midway through the first half with O’Connor’s goal following shortly after when Clark inadvertently tapped one into their own net. Shortly before the end of the first half, Andre Garcia, #2, put another one in the net, giving Clark the advantage going into the half.

The second half play was fast and furious, with the O’Connor captains contesting several of the referee’s calls, and several players on both sides getting injured. After one aggressive play, the referee gave a yellow card to O’Connor. The Clark men kept up the pressure, taking several shots on goal, but were unable to put another one in the net. O’Connor’s offense, led by their #10, were unable to get past the Clark defense, leaving Clark the victor with a 2-1 final.

The next mens game is 7 pm on Friday, January 24th, at Farris Stadium.
