Two extra periods still wasn’t enough Saturday at the Cougar Soccer Complex as the Barton Community College and Johnson County Community College men’s soccer teams couldn’t find the back of the net in a scoreless tie. As both defenses stole opportunities and goalkeepers came up with acrobatic saves preserving the shutout, the offensive attackers had their chances banging multiple shots off the frame throughout the contest. The tie keeps Barton near the top of the conference standings at 2-1-2 and 2-3-3 overall while Johnson County keeps pace at 1-1-2 in the Jayhawk and 6-4-2 overall.
Barton will step out of conference play on Tuesday as both the men’s and women’s teams travel to Hesston College on Tuesday. Kickoff for the women’s game is 5:00 p.m. followed by the men’s contest at approximately 7:00 p.m.
