Columbia, Mo--A beautiful day for a soccer game, the Missouri Tigers hosted No. 7 Texas A&M in a neck-and-neck match. The Aggies worked to keep up with Missouri throughout much of the game, but the Tigers dropped 4-2 to the team. Mizzou is now 5-8-2 overall, 3-3-0 Big 12.

Alysha Bonnick netted the first goal of the game for Missouri in the second minute of play. After a Tiger goal kick, Bonnick got possession of the ball and tore down the sideline. She fired a shot off from the corner that looked like a solid cross, but the ball snuck in the far corner of the net past the Aggie Keeper.
Missouri held its lead until the 38th minute when Rachel Shipley knocked one in for Texas A&M. The teams went into halftime with a 1-1 score.
Rejuvenated after the half, Krista Kruse put Missouri in the lead. Bonnick got ahold of the ball after a Missouri goal kick and back-heeled it towards Kruse who was able to flick it behind her into the upper corner of the goal. Tigers led 2-1 until the 54th minute when Nora Skelton put one in for A&M to even the score.
"Our team never quit and I think we got better from Friday to today, Head Coach Bryan Blitz said. "We proved to the crowd and to ourselves that we are not going to just lay down."
The game marks the end of Missouri's home schedule for the season. The Tigers head to Baylor and Texas Tech next weekend. Keep up with the Tigers on any of the team's social media sites, including Twitter, Facebook, Vimeo and, of course, mutigers.com.
