Clark Cougar Sports


by on Mar.15, 2013, under Soccer

Two great victories for Clark soccer on Tuesday as the girls and boys teams rebounded from losses late last week.

The girls poured on the goals in a 9-0 win over Jay. Chloe Trevino and Hannah Jacobs had two goals a piece, while Alyssa Jacobs, Frances Moore, Jordan Leonard, Kendall Traa and Kallie Doherty each posted one goal.  The Cougars are 8-5-0 in district 27-5A and in sole possession of  4th place with three games remaining. One of those games is today against Marshall. A victory by Marshall would create a tie for the 4th and last playoff position. Clark beat Marshall 2-1 in their first meeting this season. The game starts at 5:00 at Northside field 1.

On the boys side:

Clark toppled Jay at Gus Stadium, winning 3-0 on a beautiful afternoon. The first goal came 20 minutes in from a penalty kick by Clark senior Manolo Garcia (#1) and Clark held Jay 1-0 til the half. At the 55th minute, #16, sophomore Matt Jacobs put the ball in the net from 40 yards out, bringing the spectators to their feet. In the last few minutes, #6, senior Jaron Pineda moved onside from an offside position and then beat his opponent to the ball. He then passed the ball to #17, senior Chemo Elizondo, for the third Clark goal of the game. The officials awarded one yellow card on Jay and one yellow card each to Cougars junior John Cintron (#3), and junior Angus Moir (#4). Each of the Clark men played hard and it was good to see #10, freshman Jake Peterson, back on the pitch. 
Awesome win for the Cougars! The results put Clark in second place, with Brandeis holding the #1 position in the district. They play next on Friday against Marshall. The game will be at 7 pm, Northside field #1
