Published: Saturday, Aug. 31, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

William Crozier and Uriel Ortega both had second-half goals for the Genoa-Kingston boys soccer team as the Cogs shut out Byron, 2-0, in the Stillman Valley Tournament.

Juan Da Sliva had an assist for G-K (2-1), and goalkeeper Andrew Caldwell earned the shutout.

“We had a hard time adjusting to the smaller field in the first half. In the second half we calmed down and played under control,” G-K coach Randy Tate said. “We were able to get some better scoring opportunities and finish a couple of shots for goals. Defensively we played stronger and limited any scoring chances. Not the most stylish win, but it was a win.”
