COFFEYVILLE — The No. 15-ranked Cowley College men's soccer team scored three second-half goals Wednesday to pull away for a 4-0 win at Coffeyville.
The Tigers (6-0-1, 3-0-1 Jayhawk East) remained unbeaten on the season.
Assistant coach Tanner Brock filled in as head coach in the one-game absence of head coach Ruy Vaz.
"I felt we started the game strong but then got complacent," Brock said. "We responded really well in the second half. The guys felt like we lost the game we
tied against Johnson County, so I am proud of the way we bounced back and got the job done against Coffeyville."
Sophomore Joao Victor Camargos provided the lone goal of the first half with his first goal of the season off an assist from Antonio Marra.
The Tigers wasted no time in the second half. Sophomore Elluan Martins Gomes scored his team-leading ninth goal off an assist from Lucas Mauro only two minutes after halftime.
Murilo Ramos added his third goal of the season 10 minutes later and Antonio Marra capped the scoring by sending in a shot off an assist from Leonardo
Palmieri for Marra's second of the season.
Cowley goalkeeper Ramiro Diez recorded the shutout against the Red Ravens (0-8, 0-3) by stopping both shots he faced and has not been scored on in the past two games.
The Tigers play host to No. 16-ranked Neosho County (8-1, 2-1) at 4 p.m. Saturday.
"Whenever we play serious, we can be a dangerous team and not just average," Vaz said. "We coach for these kinds of games. I hope we flip the switch and have an extra boost because we know Neosho (County) is a very good team."
