Except for the 2nd inning, the Clark Cougars played valiantly but fell short to Austin Westlake 5-3 in a one game elimination Area playoff game. The Cougars jumped on the Chaps in the first inning, scoring two runs. The top of the 2nd inning the Chaparral bats came alive and they put 5 across the plate. Undaunted, the Cougars came back, Jonathan Fargnoli popping out on a sacrifice fly to score another run, making it 5-3 after three innings. The Cougar defense stiffened but three double plays by the Westlake defense down the stretch killed any chance of a Cougar rally. For a team picked early in the season to finish in the middle of the pack, this Clark team showed what a little Cougar pride and hard work can accomplish. Congratulations for a great season, thanks to the Seniors and look for a great season next year. The Clark Cougar varsity team is coached by Aldo Velazquez.
1st inning: Hunter McFall base hit; Braden Mattson base hit, Trey Doebbler RBI single, Jonathan Fargnoli RBI single
