Valle rushes for a 1st down

Under the bright lights of a television broadcast, the Clark Cougar varsity football team lost to the Alamo Heights Mules, 28-10.

1st Quarter

The Cougars looked strong, beginning with Cristian Arellano’s opening kickoff return to midfield.  The Cougars then marched down to the redzone but could not convert a 4th and 1 on the one yard line.  On the next possession, the defense attacked as Sam Carter caused and recovered a fumble. The Mules, however, made up for their mistake on their next possession scoring, making it Mules 7, Cougars 0 with :58 to go until the 2nd qtr.

2nd Quarter

Using classic Clark ball control, mostly through the rushing of Brandon Valle, the Cougars took the kickoff and ran a 19 play drive, ending in a 6 yd. touchdown pass from Chase Jones to R’Mani Bettis.  With 5:32 left before halftime, the score was tied.  Following a Heights possession, the Cougars responded with a score.  With no timeouts left and the clock ticking down, Nick Gonsalves executed a perfect “fire drill” field goal attempt of 24 yds. as the buzzer sounded.  Going into the locker rooms at the half, Clark led 10 to 7.
