Rambelles soccer defeated Oklahoma Christian with an outstanding 8-0 win on Friday, September 19. 

The game started with the Rambelles making sure their presence could be seen on the filed as they kept control of the ball for the majority of the match.

Cynthia Andrews, midfielder, said that they keep up the intensity as a way to intimidate the opposing team.

The first score for ASU came from a perfectly executed goal from Jenny Kotowych, forward, around the 25 minute mark of the first half. This goal was followed by a second goal from Loni Byers, midfielder. These goals set into motion the motivation for the Rambelles to score their remaining goals.

With many supporters from the crowd encouraging the Rambelles to keep up the performance, it became clear that the team had sparked an interest with their electrifying presence on the field.

ASU continued to dominate during the second quarter with a strong performance from players like Chloe Contreras, defender.

Contreras said that this game gave an opportunity for team to practice on their passing, giving the team potential to have a better experience at Regionals.

This game convinced the student body that the Rambelles have a bright future going towards regionals. With every team that the Rambelles play against, it can be assured that they will keep a level head going into the game.

One milestone set by the team is their win-loss record. Last season’s losses to Fort Lewis and Ouachita Baptist are still prominent in the minds of the team, but they want to have “an in season, nonconference high win percentage going into the end of the season, that will help get us into post season play,” Travis McCorkle, head coach, said.

In the five games played so far in this season, the team has accumulated 24 goals.

“This is something we really wanted to improve on,” McCorkle said.

McCorkle said that all these games are important regardless if they are nonconference. “We want to build a standard going into conference play,” he said.

An overall goal set by the team this season is “to play at the best of our ability’s in every single game,” McCorkle said.
