After the victory Friday Oct. 3, the Rambelles had their ninth win for the season against Texas Woman’s University on Sunday Oct. 5.

The Rambelles kept their goals against record at zero for 6 games, making their average goals against 0.3.

The first half of the game seemed to be difficult for the Rambelles as TWU led the game.

The Rambelles offensive line couldn’t create distinct opportunities for a goal, and pressure from the midfield line disappeared and gave TWU several shot opportunities.

In the first 26 minutes of the first half, the Rambelles faced a dangerous situation that held their goals against record in jeopardy.

Although the Rambelles energy in the first half looked slow, it didn’t take a long time for them to shake it off and get back to their usual level of play.

In the second half, the Rambelles returned with sharpness, speed, and strong pressure, and they began to take lead of the game, as usual.

Passes from the midfielders made holes several times in the TWU defense and the Rambelles offenses hardly missed the passes, and crushed the TWU defense line.

As the Belles found their groove, fans were enthusiastic and turned over their energy to the Rambelles on the field.

Fifty-four minutes into the second half, Dakota Briseno, no.8, made the first goal to decide the win for the game after a pass from Tiffany Dang. Dang crossed the ball over to Briseno from the left side of the penalty box, and Briseno took a middle range shot going over goal keeper’s head.

“I saw Tiffany cross the ball,” Briseno said. “I knew I had to get to the back post and get a foot on it.”

The goal was Briseno’s first goal of the season and Dang made her fourth assist of the season; ranking Dang number one on the team for assists.

Even though The Rambelles pressured TWU the rest of the time, and they couldn’t make another goal, Shantel Wittke, goal keeper, kept the Belles at bay, ending the game 1-0.

The Rambelles defense boasted their team work and outstanding individual marking ability, not allowing a loss.

On Friday, October 10, the Rambelles play against West Texas A&M Lady Buffs in Canyon.
