Sept. 25 In the Rambelles’ first conference game, the team faced off against Texas A&M Commerce in Commerce, Texas.

The Belles have had some rough first halves this season and this game was no exception. A rough half, with an AMC goal in the 13th minute and the Belles’ struggles took over the game.

AMC kept the Belles down in the first half, but the Belle defense held strong, stopping any other goals. Eight of the Belles shot, and six shots went to the AMC net, but the goalie stopped all of them.

While the second half was an offensive improvement, neither team scored again. The score stayed at a 1-0 win for AMC.

The statistic leaders for this game were forward and midfielder Sierra Anderson with four attempted shots and goalkeeper Shantel Wittke with two saves.

Sept. 27 After a short break, the Rambelles took on Texas Women’s University in Denton, Texas.

The Belles were ready to win after having their streak broken a few days earlier. Again, the team had a slow start. They didn’t shoot once in the first half as compared to TXU’s five attempts.

When halftime was over, the Belles were back in fighting shape and on their game. They scored two goals in the second half and had 15 shot attempts with seven on goal.

Midfielder Hayley Mendel scored a goal in the 62nd minute of the game, followed eight minutes later by Anderson with an assist from Dang to score the second and last goal of the game.

Statistic leaders for this game were: Anderson with eight attempted shots, Dang with one assist and goalkeeper Shantel Wittke with five saves.

The final score was 2-0 for a Rambelle win.

The Belles will host two games at home against West Texas A&M Friday, Oct. 2 at 7 p.m. and Eastern New Mexico on Sunday, Oct. 4 at 1 p.m.
