It took over sixty-three minutes but the Barton Community College women's soccer team found a way to win earning a 1-0 nail bitter Wednesday afternoon at Dodge City Community College.
Gabriela Freitas picked an opportune time blasting home her first collegiate game winner with 27:54 left on the clock, spinning a move around a defender before rifling a laser near post for her fourth goal of the season.
Itzel Diaz improved to 6-6-0 as the Cougar's net protector anchoring a stout defensive line that allowed just one first half shot on frame.
The second straight win secures the Cougars at least a third place finish or better in the Jayhawk West, improving to 7-3-0 in league play and 7-6-0 on the season. Dodge City remains and looks to hold onto fourth place in slipping to 4-5-0 and 4-5-1 overall.
Barton's next time on the pitch comes Saturday in a 2:00 p.m. kick-off welcoming the Beavers of Pratt Community College (1-8-0, 2-12-0)
