The Texas Tech Soccer Team Falls Short Against the Texas A&M Aggies on Friday to End Their Season

The Texas Tech soccer team was in action on Friday as they were making their second straight NCAA second round appearance.  They would be facing off against former Big 12 foe, the Texas A&M Aggies at Fetzer Field in Chapel Hill, N.C.  The game would not go how Tech would want it to though as they would go on to lose the game in a shootout.  The Red Raiders battled A&M to a 2-2 draw before the Aggies took the match in a penalty kick shootout 4-3. With the loss, Texas Tech ends its historic 2013 season with an 18-2-3 record.

“The first thing is I just want to tell everyone how proud we are of this team,” Texas Tech head coach Tom Stone (Pictured on the left) said. “We had a tremendous season. We had one of the best defenses in the country and I think we showed that again tonight. Losing in penalties is brutal, because you play hard, the game is tied but it has to be settled.”

The two teams went into overtime as neither could find the back of the net after two 10-minute overtime periods before Tech found itself in its first shootout situation since the 2009 season. Texas A&M connected on each of its first four penalty kicks in the shootout while the A&M goalkeeper Jordan Day made back-to-back saves on shots by Jade Dapaah and Alli Murphy.
