MSU's Clark Earns LSC Weekly Honor

Midwestern State's Ray Clark garnered Lone Star Conference Defensive Player of the Week honors Wednesday when the league released its weekly awards.
 
The junior transfer from Norman, Okla. made five saves to complete his fifth clean sheet of the season to lead the Mustangs to a 1-0 win over rival West Texas A&M Friday night at the MSU Soccer Field.
 
Clark then posted 45 scoreless minutes Sunday against Eastern New Mexico to lower his LSC leading goals against average to 0.80.
 
Clark is the third MSU player to garner a weekly top defensive honors this season joining sophomore Isaac Pile and senior Fernando Garza, who claimed the award in consecutive weeks in September.
 
Sophomore forward Len Smith gained the Mustangs' lone offensive accolade for the week of Oct. 16.
 
Incarnate Word junior Vincent Bailey gained his fourth offensive player of the week accolade notching a pair of goals and an assist in wins over Eastern New Mexico and St. Mary's (Texas).
 
Midwestern State closed the season with a 10-2-5 mark.

    After watching the Dallas Cowboys run around in just helmets the first two days, it was finally time to hear the pads clash together.  Head Coach Jason Garrett stuck to his normal game plan of having the offense and defense practice separately to start camp, but today the pads went on and the competition ramped up.
