The Rambelles used a nice head shot in double overtime to defeat the A&M Commerce soccer team Friday, Oct. 3.

Ranked number 10 in the nation, the Rambelle’s record is now 8-0-1.

The Rambelles not only had to face a tough defense from the Lions, but they also had to battle the chilling wind.

The wind had no effect on the girls though, as they battled it out to double over time.

It was a very intense game, but the fans, who always show support to the Rambelle soccer team, remained steadfast throughout the entire game.

Both offenses found it hard to score throughout the regular play time. However, Shantel Wittke, goalie, fought the Lions off with one major save before the half and five saves in the overall play time. This allowed Wittke her fifth shut out game of the season.

The Rambelles kept control of the field, shooting a ratio of 21:10 against the Lions.

“We want to score more goals,” Sierra Anderson, no. 14, said. “Obviously, getting a win is really important to us, but we want to show teams that we can actually score multiple goals during a game.”

The game appeared to be a draw between two tough defensive teams until Loni Bryers, no.9, sent a smooth assist over the entire Lion’s team to Anderson who sank the ball into the goal with a head shot with just under 5 minutes left in the second overtime.

Not only did Anderson steal the game in the last few minutes, but she put on a dribbling clinic with all-star foot work and great passes throughout the entire game.

The team is always working to improve their game, on and off the field.

“We practice about 15 minutes on the things we aren’t good at, dribbling is one thing I am not good at so I work cones and drills,” Anderson said.

The Rambelles also played on Sunday, October 6, winning another shut out game (1-0) against Texas Woman’s University here at the ASU soccer Complex.

The next game will be on Friday, October 10, at 7:00 p.m. at West Texas A&M University in Canyon, Texas.
