Portland freshman unfazed by first action in goal
The Oregonian, November 28th, 2009 8AM

MOST COMMENTED

Portland has a long tradition of producing great goalies, dating back to Kasey Keller in the late 1980s. The latest goalie to get a shot with the Pilots is freshman Justin Baarts, who was called into action for the first time when All-WCC goalie Austin Guerrero was red-carded in overtime of their first-round NCAA Tournament match at New Mexico. UP won, 2-1, and Baarts made his first start three days later at N.C. State, making three saves during the Pilots' 2-1 win. "That's a hell of a way to make a debut, knowing that one goal finishes it," Portland coach Bill Irwin, a former NASL goalie, said of the New Mexico game. "But he dealt with it. He didn't show any outward nerves to me. He's got that confidence about him." Irwin says he might not select a starter in goal for Sunday's match at Virginia until game time.
