SILOAM SPRINGS – Juniors Caitlyn Logan and Vanessa Reynoso were named the SAC Defensive and Offensive Players of the Week, respectively, by the league office for their performance against LSU Shreveport this past weekend on Monday (Aug. 26).
The award is the fourth of Logan’s career while Reynoso picked up the honors for the first time as a Golden Eagle.
While the John Brown midfield and back line limited the Pilots (0-1-0) to just three shots, two on target, Logan’s acrobatic save in the early going to preserve the 0-0 stalemate that persisted into the intermission. The goalkeeper from Charlotte, N.C., was not called upon in the second half as JBU (1-0-0) maintained overwhelming control, out-shooting the visitors 14-1 en route to a two-goal outburst.
The clean sheet was the 14th of Logan’s career.
Reynoso, meanwhile, played a hand in each Golden Eagle tally in the second half. In the 67th minute, the midfielder’s through ball past the Shreveport back line sprung senior Kristen Howell into a one-on-one with the keeper. Howell sidestepped the keeper and struck from a tough angle to net the game-winner.
With just over five minutes remaining, Reynoso iced the contest by deflecting freshman Emma Schoenberg’scross from the left side up and over the Pilot keeper, netting her third career goal to cap off a three-point outing in the John Brown season opener.
The Golden Eagles return to action on Thursday (Aug. 29) to take on Concordia (Neb.) at Alumni Field. First kick is slated for 7 p.m. and can be viewed live on JBUathletics.com.
