Brown created the game's final result when her 15-yard kick off a pass from Maddie Hill bounced off the crossbar and dropped into the back of the net with 3:44 (86:16) to play. The goal was Brown's third of the season.
Brown had two other shots during the contest, including a one-on-one attack that was saved by Loras College goalkeeper Kaylee Coble near the net in the game's 28th minute.
Loras College (11-2), which lost its previous two contests to UW-Oshkosh (5-7-1), took a 1-0 advantage on a goal by Gretchen Schutz in the 10th minute (9:57). Schutz scored her team-leading seventh goal of the season on a 20-yard kick that followed a failed clear attempt by the Titans.
