Siloam Springs, Ark. (September 11, 2006) — In a game where both teams where searching for their first win of the season, John Brown was able to overcome Ottawa (Kan.) 30-11, 30-25, 32-30 in action Saturday. The win came in John Brown’s fourth and final match during the Baker University Invitational in Baldwin City, Kansas.
