The Barton Community College women’s soccer team picked up a solid road conference win Wednesday shutting out Coffeyville Community College 2-0. The victory improves the Lady Cougars to 2-1-1 in conference play and 3-4-2 on the season while giving Coffeyville their second straight loss in falling to 2-2-0 in the Jayhawk and 4-3-0 overall.
Following a scoreless first half, Millie York‘s free kick just missed the game winner off the crossbar but Aliya Marshall cleaned up the mess within the 8′ to give Barton the 1-0 lead with 38:07 remaining in the contest.
Scarlett Real gave the Lady Cougars a two goal cushion within two minutes later as the reigning KJCCC Player of the Week took a Maria Munoz pass outside the 18′ dribbling past two defenders to strike the upper 90 on far post.
Barton will stay in conference action this Saturday as both the men’s and women’s teams welcome Johnson County Community College to the Cougar Soccer Complex in key Jayhawk battles. Kickoff for the women’s game is 1:00 p.m. followed by the men’s contest at approximately 3:00 p.m.
