CHANUTE, Kan. — A goal in each half carried Neosho County (Kansas) Community College to a 2-0 win over Northeastern Oklahoma A&M in a women’s soccer match here Saturday, Aug. 25.

Sophomore forward DaNisha Brown, with an assist from sophomore defender Savannah Moberly, scored the Lady Panthers’ first goal at 31:02 of the first half.

Moberly made it 2-0 with a penalty kick in the 79th minute.

“We came back stronger in the second half and unfortunately gave up the PK,” NEO coach Lisa Bell said. “Our best effort came in the second half of the second half. The defensive pressure was finally there.

“We generated some offense. We just didn’t capitalize on our opportunities.”

Sophomore forward Fortune Kede had six shots, including four shots on goal.

Sophomore midfielder Cassidy Rumsey had two and freshman mid Savanna Suttles one.

“Our biggest weakness right now is 100 percent effort from everyone at the same time,” Bell said.

Freshman goalie Sara Zerbest had nine saves, only three in the second half.

“We have some really talented players and it’ll come. Sooner rather than later is the hope,” Bell said.

NEO tackles another Kansas opponent on the road Tuesday, Aug. 28: Coffeyville Community College.
