Clark’s defense recorded six turnovers and held Faith Lutheran scoreless in the second half. The defense also scored when Veuki Taumoefolau grabbed an interception and returned it 15 yards for a touchdown.
Faith Lutheran led 13-6, but only briefly. Following the touchdown, Clark’s Marquice Stuart returned the ensuing kickoff 90 yards to even the score.
“(The kids) were so ecstatic. It was a great win for us. A great win,” Clark coach Don Willis said.
Faith Lutheran was considered the favorite in the Sunset, and Sierra Vista and Mojave — each led by college-caliber running backs — were expected to be in the mix.
Clark, who made the playoffs last season for the first time in more than a decade, appears to also be a legitimate contender.
“We are a good team. We are a top tier team,” Willis said. “We are starting to show that on the field.”
Clark improves to 2-0. It plays at Spring Valley next week.
