Golden Eagles Secure Conference Title

Siloam Springs, Ark. (October 25, 2005) — The John Brown Golden Eagles captured their first Sooner Athletic Conference regular-season women’s soccer title Tuesday with a 2-0 victory over Oklahoma Baptist in Shawnee, Okla. A loss would have put John Brown (10-5-1, 5-1) into a three-way tie for first place, with Oklahoma Baptist (11-3-1, 4-2) owning tiebreaking victories over John Brown and Oklahoma City.

Kendra Rehner put the Golden Eagles on the board in the 38th minute with a goal off a corner kick by Nikki Ganter. Ganter then added the second goal in the 49th minute on an assist from Stacie and Sharon Burley. Goalkeeper Natalie Wall made 3 saves to achieve the shutout.
