Cassandra Moosburger, junior, uses some quick footwork to trip up her opponents. Moosburger has scored a total of 14 points this season.

The Belles soccer team shutout Eastern New Mexico 1-0 Friday night advancing to the Lone Star Conference Tournament Final; the team fell short to West Texas A&M 1-0 Sunday night in the championship final.

Three ASU players were named to the All-Tournament team including junior Analise Watson, freshman Avery McNeme and Senior Callie Smith.

In Friday’s game, freshman Avery McNeme made the winning goal for the team in the 53rd minute.

The belles had 10 shots on goal for the night and limited ENMU to only four.

Sophomore goalkeeper Sammy Cude saved all four of their shots on goal making her season save total 85.

"We played really well for most of the match," head coach Travis Mccorkle said. "I thought we let off a little in the second half and Eastern New Mexico really pressed hard and took advantage of that."

Mccorkle said they were able to hold the shutout and get the win.

"At this time of the year, that’s all that really matters," Mccorkle said.

In Sunday’s game, neither team was able to score in the first half.

The belles outshot WT 15-14 and had seven shots on goal.

Junior Cassandra Moosburger had a few chances on shots which all were defended by WT.

Cude had four saves in the match including three in the first half.

West Texas A&M scored in the 74th minute of the game off of a corner kick.

The team had several chances to tie up the score on the final minutes but couldn’t find the back of the goal.

The team is now ranked as the No. 3 seed for the NCAA postseason.

The Belles are currently in Colorado Springs, Colorado for the NCAA tournament.

Their first game is against West Texas A&M Nov. 10 at 3 p.m.
