MONTGOMERY, Ala. - Faulkner hosted its final home game of the season tonight when it took on Southern States Athletic Conference rival Belhaven at John Mark Stallings Field.

Caitlin Sebert was in the net for Faulkner and secured a pair of saves in the shutout.
The team also honored eight seniors in a special ceremony after the game. Jessica Monarch, Lisa Gallea, Lecia Foster, Ashley Collins, Jennifer Parrott, Laura Kramer, Kinsey Ogles and Samantha Ruddick will all bid farewell to the team at the close of the season.
Faulkner moves to 9-6-1 overall and 6-5 in the league. The Lady Eagles will travel to cross-town rival Auburn Montgomery on Saturday for a noon matchup to close the regular season.
