ROUGH NIGHT FOR CLARK SOCCER

by on Mar.09, 2013, under Soccer

Two exciting games for the Cougars on Friday, unfortunately they didn’t end well for Clark.
In the girls game Clark and Brandeis were tied 0-0 at the half and for much of the second half. Brandeis scored their first goal midway through the last half and was quickly matched by a successful Clark penalty kick by senior Alyssa Jacobs. The Broncos picked up steam, however, scoring another 4 goals before the game finished, 5-1. The Cougars are tied for 4th place with Marshall and will be fighting for that playoff spot during the last four games of the season. Clark  plays Jay on Tuesday, March 12, at Gus stadium, 7 pm. Go get ’em Coogs!
The Clark boys played hard last night at Northside #2, losing an intensely physical game against Brandeis. The Broncos’ goal came early in the second half and they successfully held Clark for the rest of the game. The referee called yellow cards against two Brandeis players and one against Clark junior John Cintron, #3. The Clark team was focused and fierce but the Brandeis keeper successfully blocked every shot.
It was Clark’s second defeat to Brandeis this season, with both games being extremely competitive. If the two teams face off again, it will be in the playoffs. In the district standings, Brandeis is now in first place, Jay in second and Clark in third. However, Brandeis and Jay have 3 games left, Clark has 4; Brandeis and Jay have yet to play their second game against each other. All of this will make for an interesting finish to the season.
Clark faces Jay on Tuesday, March 12, at Gus stadium, 5 pm. Go Coogs!
