Clark Men’s Soccer bounced back from what has been a very competitive yet frustrating year so far in conference play with a 3-2 victory against Emerson. The Cougars were down 2-1 going into the last third of the game, but were able to tie the game thanks to a well-placed header by Demetri Boumis (‘18) off of a cross from Zack Blais (‘17). Boumis then went on find Jeremy Park (‘19) in the right place at the right time about ten yards out to give Clark a 3-2 lead. Emerson failed to respond and Clark tallied their first conference victory while Emerson remained winless in the NEWMAC. The team will play its final home and conference game on Saturday, Oct. 31 at 12:30 p.m. against Wheaton.

He finished 19th overall out of the current college students participating (some Williams alumni also ran).

Clark Field Hockey heads into its last week of the season coming off a loss to No. 10 Wellesley College this past Saturday. Wellesley’s two goals in the first half and three more in the second half went unanswered by the Cougars until Alyssa Williams (‘17) and Lauren Mackey (‘17) each scored a goal with less than 20 minutes remaining on the clock. The Cougars, however, were unable to take the lead so late in the game, leaving the final score at 5-2. “Our defense was tough per usual and I thought we were communicating well,” said midfielder Haley Mahan (‘18). “We have just been struggling in the past few games to put all the pieces together and move the ball smoothly up the field.”

The Cougars will play their final game at home this Saturday, Oct. 31 at 1 p.m. against Smith College, which will double as their senior day.

The team followed up a 3-2 victory last week against Wheaton with a close 3-2 win over WPI on Shannon Glass-Smythe (‘16) Senior Night. It was Glass-Smythe’s last regular season home game of her college career. She recorded 11 kills, 14 digs, and led the team with 3 service aces. Clark has clinched a top four seed in the NEWMAC championships, and will play their first playoff game at home at a time to be determined.
