Cougars get second consecutive shutout


The Barton Community College men’s soccer team got its second straight shutout as the Cougars scored a 2-0 conference victory Tuesday over Kansas City Kansas Community College at the Cougar Soccer/Track Complex.  The Cougars scored one in each half improving to 2-2-2 on the season and 2-0-1 in conference play while dropping the Blue Devils to 0-2-0 on both the season and conference.  Barton will step out of conference play this Friday as the Cougars host the junior varsity from Tabor College in 4:00 p.m. kickoff at the Cougar Soccer/Track Complex.

Jiro Barriga Toyama scored his first goal as a Cougar as the freshman gave Barton the lead on a spectacular volley from outside the 18′ that rocketed past the keeper into the top right of the net with 18:25 to play in the first half.

Fellow freshman Renan Souza put the game on ice with 5:23 to play in the game stealing a pass near the midfield racing headwind past the defense.  Blasting a shot saved by the KCK keeper, Sousa settled the rebound to score his first goal as a Cougar finding the lower inside post.

For the game Barton outshot KCK 16-8 and 8-6 on frame.  Goalkeeper Austin Kail, who had a spectacular week last week, recorded six saves in the contest including three acrobatic rejections in the second half keeping KCK off the scoreboard and preserving Barton’s one goal lead.
