The first victory of the season came a little later than expected, but Saturday at the Cougar Soccer/Track Complex, the Barton Community College women’s soccer team broke through for a 2-0 shutout of Western Nebraska.  
The victory improved the lady Cougars to 1-1-1 on the season while giving Western Nebraska a season-opening loss.
Barton will return to the pitch on today for a 2 p.m. game against Trinidad State while Western Nebraska will take on Pratt in a 10 a.m. matchup.
The Lady Cougars took a 1-0 lead into halftime, getting a goal with 2:10 to play.
Defenseman Millie York set up the play sending a free kick past the 18-foot mark where Sydne Harpenau finished it off.
It didn’t take Barton long to get the two-goal cushion as Catlin Simon-Mans stole an early pass then sent a cross through the box, finding Scarlett Real, who blasted it past the Western Nebraska goalkeeper just 13 seconds into the second half.
