Novv n wait final standings
Aggies’ soccer team tied by Owls
Sports Editor
The 1980 season has been full of
surprises for Telmo Franco and his
Texas A&M University men’s soccer
team, and one of the bigger surprises
came Saturday.
The Aggies roared into Houston
intent on taking the Rice Owls and
clinching a third place finish in the
fall SWC race. Instead, the Owls
rose up and handed A&M a 1-1 tie
and threw a wrench into the Aggies’
finish in front of approximately 300
Texas A&M initially went to Hous
ton hoping for a second place SWC
finish, but Texas won two games last
weekend against Texas Tech and
Arkansas to take that position.
“We played not too good, not too
bad,” said Franco Sunday night.
“We played a good game. Rice is not
as weak as their record indicates. We
had a strong defense, but our offen
sive line is not as strong as our defen
sive line just yet. We need the same
quality both ways.”
A&M scored on a Paul Winston
goal, his ninth of the year, five mi
nutes into the game. The Aggies are
now 6-3-3 for the season and await
the results of other weekend league
games to determine their final sea
son standing.
“They (Aggie players) are very
happy for their contribution to the
A&M soccer program,” Franco said.
“There’s no way anyone should feel
bad. We’re planning to keep playing.
We’ll play in some tournaments.
We re anxious to get more experi
ence in the fall.”
Franco said several soccer coaches
from the Dallas area have contacted
him about the program, and two
players have notified the head coach
they will be transferring to A&M to
join the Aggies in the spring.
The Aggies will play Lamar Satur
day in Beaumont.

“She (Fernandez) just wore her

Coach Jan Cannon. “She’s so proud
of herself ... she’s outlasting some
people. We’ve got her on a weight
