The Belles soccer team tied with Southwestern Oklahoma State University on Friday, Sept. 14 and beat East Central University on Sunday, Sept. 16.

In Friday’s game, the score was 4-4. The team matched a season high in goals scored with four in total.

After this game, the Belles had a record of 1-3-1, racking up 23 shots and 11 on-goal.

“Obviously a tie isn’t the result we wanted,” Head Coach Travis McCorkle said. “We came back from down a goal three different times, and that mentality is great to see.”

Less than five minutes into the match, the opposing team took a 1-0 lead. 

Trenadey Scott scored her first goal of the season. The junior scored 15 times last season. Senior Analise Watson gave Scott the assist.

The Belles scored again after a free kick from senior midfielder Megan Allen that bounced off the head of Watson; the ball went to freshman midfielder Gabby Villagrand, who put it in the net. 

This was Villagrand’s first goal of the season as well as her first collegiate goal.

The Bulldogs scored once more in the first half to tie the game.

Freshman Chloe Souza scored before the opening half ended. 

Goalkeeper Kira Miller saved 15 shots on the night in a career high.

The Bulldogs scored again in the second half. 

With nine minutes left in the game, the Belles were down 4-3. Senior Cassandra Mooseburger fired a shot in the net to tie the game.

The game went into double overtime and neither team was able to score again, ending the game in a 4-4 tie. 

In Sunday’s game, the Belles won 2-1 in overtime.

Scott scored the winning goal for the team. The goal came in just 19 seconds into the overtime period.

“There were some points in the game that I thought Trenadey was trying to force too many things,” McCorkle said. “We talked about how I wanted to see her do the simple things right. She did that in overtime and got an easy tap-in to win the game for us.”

When the game started, Mooseburger passed to Scott, who then scored the first goal.

Shortly after, East Central scored.

Neither team could score again. Miller kept the Tigers from scoring in the second half. 

The game went into overtime when Scott made her game-winning shot. 

The Belles start Lone Star Conference play on Sept. 19 at the ASU Soccer Field.
