Soccer - JCCC Soccer teams sweep Neosho County

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – The Johnson County Community College women’s and men’s soccer teams got much-needed KJCCC East Division wins with a road sweep of Neosho County Community College in matches played Tuesday, Sept. 25.

With the win Johnson County improves to 5-4-1 overall, but stands 4-1-1 in conference play, good for second place behind 5-0 Butler Community College.

In the nightcap, the Cavaliers got on the board in the 37th minute on a goal by Luke Andrews. Axxel Chazaro gave Johnson County a 2-nil lead in the 80th minute with his team-leading six goal of the season. 

Neosho County got on the board in the 87th minute on a score from Alfie Belcher, but the Cavaliers kept the Panther at bay the final three minutes to pull out the win.
