[HORIZON: Women] Vienna Behnke scored in the 13th minute to lead Milwaukee to a 1-0 victory at Oakland that marked the 14th consecutive year the Panthers have claimed the Horizon League crown, the longest active streak in women's soccer.

Behnke scored when she forced a turnover near the OU end line, beat her defender and then calmly slotted the ball near post to beat the keeper.

UWM will now host the conference tournament, starting with Friday's semifinal matchup.

"Oakland is just a really, really good side and they have some great players. They created some great chances. Give them a lot of credit for the match they brought to us tonight," Milwaukee coach Greg Henschel said. "I give our team a lot of credit for coming out on top of a good team like that. I'm really pleased with the result. I think we would have liked a better second half out of our team, but I think we played well in the second half we just didn't play as well as we can and as well as we usually do. I'm really proud of the team for finding that result tonight. They were not easy conditions to find that result."

Keeper Paige Lincicum made five saves, the big one on Joan Sieja's blast from point-blank range in the 73rd minute.

"Our team is really starting to engage the game a little bit differently," Henschel added. "I think it does cause teams, even good teams like Oakland, problems. Our defending was really quite good tonight. Of course there are areas we're going to work to improve, but our group is working very well and with great concentration."
