COLUMBIA, Mo. - The Mizzou soccer team scored a late goal but could not complete the comeback as the Tigers fell 2-1 to Texas A&M Sunday afternoon at Walton Stadium. In the annual Play for Pink game and the Pack the Park promotion, the match's attendance of 1,734 ranked as the third-best crowd in program history.
With the loss, Mizzou fell to 6-6-1 overall and 2-2-1 in Southeastern Conference play, while the Aggies improved to 9-3-1 and 4-1-0.
The match remained scoreless for much of the first half. Mizzou redshirt junior goalkeeper McKenzie Sauerwein stood tall in the net and punched away a number of Aggie chances. In the 20th minute, Sauerwein got her hand on a Texas A&M shot and punched it over the crossbar.
The visitors finally broke through in the 43rd minute on the counterattack. Bianca Brinson passed up to Liz Keester, who dribbled down into the box and beat Sauerwein for a 1-0 Aggie advantage.
Texas A&M went up 2-0 in the 70th minute despite solid play from Sauerwein. Mizzou's keeper made a diving save on a shot from Shea Groom but the rebound rolled to Allie Bailey, who knocked in a goal before Sauerwein could recover.
Seniors Alyssa Diggs and Danielle Nottingham combined to get the Missouri on the board and pull the Tigers within one, 2-1, in the 86th minute. Stationed outside the right side of the box, Nottingham sent a cross eight yards in front of the net. Diggs ran onto the ball and one-timed the pass past the Aggie keeper and into the back of the net. The tally was the second of the year for Diggs, while Nottingham recorded her team-leading fifth assist of the season.
The Tigers continued to put pressure on the Aggie defense in the remaining minutes but could not convert for a 2-1 Texas A&M win.
