Barton Community College freshman goalkeeper Cecilee Horlacher recorded her fifth shutout of the season on Wednesday afternoon.
The Lady Cougars soccer team blanked Johnson County 2-0 at the Barton soccer and track complex to advance to 10-2-1 overall, 6-1-1 in Kansas Jayhawk Community College play.
“It wasn’t the prettiest game, as windy as it was,” Barton head coach Aaron Avila said. “It was sloppy. The ball was just flying everywhere. Both teams had to deal with it, so definitely not the prettiest game, but we made our chances count.”
Ruth Cazier scored Barton’s first goal with 10:06 remaining in the first half on an assist from Bianca Barron, scoring against the wind.
Barron made it 2-0 in the second half, taking a pass from Courtney Galliher and punching it into the net.
“Sometimes we struggle finishing our chances, but today we finished them,” Avila said. “We were able to get a good result. It was big for us to get a goal against the wind, and not giving up a goal when they had the wind.”
Horlacher made seven saves as Johnson County outshot Barton 17-12.
The Lady Cougars travel to Butler on Sunday, starting at 7:30 p.m.
