John Brown University’s women’s soccer team lost 1-0 against Oklahoma City on the road in double overtime Wednesday afternoon bringing their record to 3-5-1 overall and 1-2 in conference play.

A foul was called on JBU for taking down OCU’s sophomore Meghan McMahon in the 101st minute resulting in a penalty kick. McMahon took the shot and found the back of the net ending the game at 1-0 after the long battle.

During the game, JBU’s junior goalkeeper Faith Thurman saved five shots on goal, keeping the Lady Stars off the scoreboard. JBU struggled to get through OCU’s defense only having two shots on goal throughout the entire game.

The Lady Eagles are back in action on Saturday, October 8 at 1:00 p.m. against Southern Nazarene at Alumni Field for Homecoming weekend.
