Belle Soccer lost its final regular season home game against Texas A&M-Commerce on Oct. 29 but still earned the No. 1 spot in the Lone Star Conference.

The team is now 12-3-1 on the season and 9-2-1 in the LSC play.

Seniors, Loni Byers, Tiffany Dang, Lauren Eshelman, Elyssia Lucio, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Morgan Sibson, Callie Smith and Molly Warren were recognized before the game since the group played its last home game of the regular season.

Sophomore goalkeeper Sammy Cude made five saves during the game on six shots on the goal in the first 25 minutes.

Head Coach Travis McCorkle said it was a tough game for them.

"We made a lot of mistakes, but I thought overall we showed progress today," McCorkle said.

McCorkle said that was the number one thing they wanted to see progress.

"We hoped that as a part of progress we would win unfortunately that didn’t happen today but we still have more opportunities," McCorkle said. "Maybe we’ll see them again in the tournament."

McCorkle said defensively they did really well.

"We didn’t let players run free in the penalty area," Mccorkle said.

McCorkle said their clearances were better; they had more concentration and we working hard for each other.

McCorkle said they also experimented with a 4-2-4 formation just to see what would happen.

"We got some good information for the future," Mccorkle said.

McCorkle said the one thing that the team can improve on is communication.
