Giving up three first half goals, the Barton Community College women’s soccer team couldn’t find the net in the second half dropping a conference battle Saturday 3-0 to Johnson County Community College at the Cougar Soccer Complex. The loss drops the Lady Cougars to 2-2-1 in conference play and 4-4-2 on the season while Johnson County sits atop the standings at 3-0-0 and 7-3 overall.
Jenn Howell gave Johnson County the early lead pounding in a loose ball from a corner kick just 7:24 into the contest. Sydney Alexander outmuscled the Cougar defense to blast a shot across the box finding the inside far post to give the Cavaliers the two-goal cushion with 20:14 to play. Less than thirteen minutes later Annie Poelzl found Mackenzie Cox to put the icing on the cake capping the scoring with 7:31 before halftime.
