Wisener earns SAC de­fen­sive honor

Siloam Springs Herald Leader - - SPORTS - From JBU Sports In­for­ma­tion

Se­nior Britt Wisener led an up­set bid for the sec­ond time in as many trips to South­west­ern Chris­tian’s Ca­gle Fam­ily Field, and his ef­fort earned Sooner Ath­letic De­fen­sive Player of the Week honors, the con­fer­ence of­fices an­nounced last Mon­day, Nov. 5.

The con­fer­ence honor is the first of Wisener’s ca­reer and the third for the Golden Ea­gles this sea­son. Se­niors Ashby Clark and Ryan Wil­liams both col­lected of­fen­sive honors ear­lier in the sea­son.

For the sec­ond time this sea­son, Wisener an­chored a de­fen­sive ef­fort in Bethany, Okla., that saw the Golden Ea­gles up­set South­west­ern Chris­tian on its own pitch.

De­spite sur­ren­der­ing the match’s open­ing goal just three min­utes in, Wisener stopped Igor Sto­janovic twice and Kulick, the goal scorer, all over the fi­nal 11 min­utes of play. He would fin­ish the con­test with seven saves on eight SCU of­fer­ings on tar­get to move to 9-7-1 on the sea­son.

With his seven-save per­for­mance, Wisener has posted five saves or more six times this year. The Golden Ea­gles are 3-2-1 in those matches. The Hous­ton, Texas, na­tive posted a ca­reer-high 10-save ef­fort in JBU’s win in Bethany ear­lier this sea­son.

Wisener’s goals av­er­age was 1.62 on the sea­son to ac­com­pany his trio of shutouts. He cur­rently holds the fifth-best goals-against av­er­age in the con­fer­ence.
