BRENHAM, Texas — Kaley Kaspar scored two goals to help lead the Blinn College women's soccer team (5-7, 3-6) to a 3-0 shutout over Jacksonville College on Sunday afternoon at Rankin Field. 

"It was nice to get the shutout and it was a great bounce-back victory so I am pleased," said Michael McBride, Blinn head coach.

Blinn totaled 12 shots on goal as Kaspar led the way with three for two goals. Karson Funderburk scored one goal and recorded one assist for the Buccaneers, while Carla Garcia and Kajol Prasad each came up with an assist.
