A loss by the Clark girls soccer team on Tuesday and wins by Taft and Marshall led to the Cougars missing the playoffs by the narrowest of margins. Still tied for 3rd place heading into Tuesday’s games the Cougars either needed their own win or a loss by Taft or Marshall to make it to the postseason in one of the 4 playoff spots. In the end 4th place Marshall got in with a 9-5-2 district record, Clark is 9-6-1. Taft took third place at 10-6-0.
