After a scoreless first half, Crowder exploded for four goals in the second half to earn a 4-0 win Tuesday over previously unbeaten Neosho County at Roughrider Soccer Field.
Offensively, at the 61-minute, 40-second mark, Musa Kamara took Guillaume Rouzic’s pass and put the first goal past Neosho County goalkeeper Moussa Sy, who recently earned Jayhawk Conference honors for goalie of the week.
Over a 10-minute span of the second half, Crowder took a 3-0 lead — Rouzic took Humberto Cruz’s pass for a 2-0 lead and Martin Webb made it 3-0 with an assist from Kamara. Crowder’s first three goals all featured assists.
In the 89th minute, late in the match, Cruz scored on an unassisted goal.
Meanwhile, Crowder goalie Daniel Ost — a returning all-Region 16 selection, like Cruz — made four saves and preserved the shutout with a save against Neosho County on a penalty kick.
Neosho County entered the match 5-0 on the season and the Panthers moved into the receiving votes category Tuesday when the NJCAA released its Division I poll. Neosho County’s Josue Villalta and Franklin Mendez earned respective Jayhawk Conference honors this week.
While Crowder’s last two opponents (East Central, Neosho County) are receiving votes, the Roughriders travel Saturday to meet No. 6-ranked St. Louis, currently 8-0 on the season. Crowder enters the Region 16 clash at 3-2-1 on the season.
The Archers and the ‘Riders battled in two tough matches last season and expect nothing less than another tough match Saturday.
