Megan McEachern ISU vs. Omaha

Megan McEachern (25) tries to keep the ball away from an Omaha forward in the Redbirds' win Sunday, Sept. 16.

She secured the first goal of her career Sunday, but it was the defensive play by junior Megan McEachern that stood out in the two Illinois State women's soccer games this past weekend.
