Sherrod and the Cougars strike for four first half goals in win at Hesston


Mother nature was the only thing to slow down the Barton Community College men’s soccer team Tuesday night as four first half goals led to the non-conference victory at Hesston College.  With the game being called at halftime due to inclement weather rolling through central Kansas, the Cougars forty-five minute effort improved Barton to 3-3-3 on the season while dropping Hesston to 9-5.

Just like in the women’s contest earlier, it didn’t take the Cougars long to score as Renan Sousa converted a penalty kick just 7:03 into the game.   Four minutes later Matt Sherrod scored the first of the freshman’s two goals on the night rebounding a shot fifteen yards out to beat the goalkeeper lower far post.  As if Sherrod had a stopwatch in his pocket the Maize High School product again struck four minutes later finishing off Jose Mijares’ pass giving Barton the three goal lead with 29:54 left.  Nicolas Bernal put the finishing touches on the scoring with 4:20 remaining utilizing an Enrique Guyton pass to beat the Lark keeper one-on-one and give Barton the 4-0 decisive advantage.

Barton will next prepare for a pivotal conference match on Sunday, September 28, as the Cougars host Cloud County Community College in 4:00 p.m. Jayhawk battle at the Cougar Soccer/Track Complex.  The Cougars sit in third place in the Jayhawk standings at 2-1-2 while the T-Birds are currently atop the standings at 3-1-1 and 3-4-1 overall.
