The ASU Rambelles soccer team fell 1-0 to the West Texas A&M University Lady Buffaloes Oct.16 in their final home game of the regular season. 
The first quarter was back and forth. However, the Belles took more shots than the Lady Buffs, and Head Coach Travis McCorkle made several player changes in the first quarter. 
“I made different substitutions in the first quarter,” McCorkle said. “I was trying to find the right combination of players to get going behind West Texas.” 
Offense was led by senior Demi Tsambasis, shooting five times and putting two near the goal. The second quarter had WT playing aggressively, but the 
Belles handled the misguided play. They used team work to stay in the game. Senior Shay Williams had two shots along with freshmen Trenadey Scott and Ally Warren.
Belles started the third quarter by shooting the ball more. However, the Lady Buffs were playing a different type of offense. 
They had many players on the ground that provided defensive solidity against WT attacking midfielders. The third quarter ended scoreless.
The Belles did not score in the fourth quarter, and WT kicked in their only goal five minutes before the match ended.
“The last five to six minutes was poor time management on our part,” McCorkle said. “We will work on this with our young players.”
Senior Day was also celebrated at the game, honoring seven seniors: Cynthia Andrews, Ashley Exford, Kathleen Keoughan, Haley Mendel, Lauren Perry, Tsambasis and Williams. 
They were involved in ASU’s first conference championship teams in 2013 and 2015. The Belles seniors guided their team to two NCAA tournaments. 
The Rambelles will play Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls Oct. 23.
