Cougars gets defensive in 1-0 victory over Northern Oklahoma

On a day where the offense attack wasn’t hitting its mark, the Barton Community College men's soccer team defense stepped up to preserve a 1-0 victory over Northern Oklahoma College –Tonkawa today at Cougar Field.  The non-conference win improved the Cougars overall record to 9-7 on the season with two conference games remaining starting with Wednesday’s home finale against Allen County Community College.

In a defensive battle that only allowed six shots on goal total for the two teams, the Cougars were just good enough offensively to get the narrow victory.   Barton’s lone goal came with 10:48 remaining in the first half as Ahmad Bah found Jonson Shaad who beat the goalie low right side. 

“Our whole backline was impressive today,” Barton Men’s soccer Head Coach Oliver Twelvetrees said.  “Everyone showed the heart and determination to get the win we needed.”

Barton returns to conference play at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday against Allen County Community College at Cougar Field.  Barton will then travel to Kansas City to wrap up its regular season by taking on Kansas City Kansas Community College at 1:00 p.m.
