JBU Women Suffer First Conference Loss

Siloam Springs, Ark. (October 13, 2005) — The 24th-ranked John Brown Golden Eagles took their first conference loss of the season Thursday as they were defeated 3-1 by Oklahoma City in Siloam Springs. Allie Newburn’s goal on a Nikki Ganter assist in the 20th minute for John Brown was sandwiched by two Oklahoma City corner-kick goals in the 3rd and 30th minutes. Oklahoma City took the 2-1 lead into halftime. In the 47th minute, a Golden Eagle foul gave Oklahoma City a free kick just feet from the John Brown goal. Jennifer Crawford converted the attempt to make the score 3-1.
