The Rambelle’s soccer team packed their suitcases and started the season off with four away games in Colorado and New Mexico.

The first game on Sept. 4 was a 1-1 tie against Adams State in Alamosa, Colorado and the second game on Sept. 6 was a 1-0 win against New Mexico Highlands in Las Vegas, New Mexico.

“The competition is definitely going to be hard,” Natalie Nielson, senior goalie, said. “The teams are all very physical and aggressive like we are, which we already saw in the first two games.”

Last year’s historic sixteen win season proves to be a tough one to beat.

“Sixteen wins is a lot for any team and I think that one of the things we need to work on right now is our scoring,” Head Coach Travis McCorkle said. “We have only given up one goal so far, but we have also only scored two goals in our first two games.”

At this time last year the team had already scored eight points the first weekend of games and 16 points the second weekend.

“We need to be scoring a couple goals a game, not just one and getting shut out,” McCorkle said.

Offense always takes the longest to put together and coordinate in any sport, McCorkle said.

“I am most excited for our conference because we will get our jitters out at the preseason and figure out how our team rhythm is and go in to the conference strong and show all the teams what we really have,” Nielson said.

McCorkle has high expectations for the teams’ performance at conference this season as well.

“We want to win a championship,” McCorkle said. “Last year, as good as the season was, we didn’t win a trophy and I’d like to see this team win something that’s their own this year.”

The Rambelles played in Colorado on Sept. 10 and 12 against Fort Lewis College and Colorado Mesa, beating them both 2-0. On Tuesday, Sept. 15 they played in San Antonio against St. Mary’s and won 3-2.

“I want to see the seniors have a great season and a strong impact on the team whether it’s on the field or in team chemistry,” McCorkle said.

The Rambelles played at home Thursday, Sept. 17 against Dallas Baptist and will play Sunday,
