Lawson scores trifecta

The boys varsity soccer team outplayed the Stevens Falcons at Farris Stadium, beating them 3-2 in a game that wasn’t that close.  Johnny Lawson scored all three goals for Clark – two on penalty kicks in a game that was a little “chippy” as they say.  Clark’s first goal came in the first half on a penalty kick with Lawson putting Clark on the scoreboard first.

The second half was more of the same.  Lawson scored once again as the Cougar’s front line dominated the Stevens defense.  Several players saw action as Clark took a comfortable lead with an additional penalty kick with seven and a half minutes left in the game, making it 3-0 Clark.  That’s when it got interesting.One minute later, Stevens scored on a penalty kick and one minute following that, the Falcons scored again, bringing the score to 3-2 Clark.  Clark then tightened their defensive efforts to secure the victory.

The Clark Cougars boys varsity team is ranked #2 in San Antonio by the Express News, #6 in the state and #29 in the nation by ESPN Rise, a ESPN website focused on high school athletics.

The girls varsity team beat Stevens 6-1 earlier in the day.  Gabrielle Santorio and Macy Ellis each had two goals in the game.  Alyssa Bloom and Andrea Romero also scored in the win.

Over at Stevens High School, the JV boys defeated the Falcons 1-0.  The JV boys are undefeated this season with one tie.
