A&M soccer led by freshman in win over Texas & Army
Wrap-up of the weekend
action of the Aggies’ 31-0 win
over Wyoming in football.
ON PG. 9
Fifty years ago, legendary
coach Paul Bryant took 110
players to Junction, Texas.
Fifty years later, 27 of those
players returned to Kyle Field
for a reunion Saturday.
Jason Lane's pinch hit dou
ble in the 10th inning helped
the Houston Astros beat the
Pittsburgh Pirates 54.
Mark Teixeira's two-run
homer in the 8th inning gave
the Texas Rangers a 7-6
lead over the Toronto Blue
Jays, and Francisco Cordero
recorded his 44th save to
complete a three-game sweep
of the Blue Jays.
The No. 14 A&M volleyball
team defeated No. 8 California
3-0 to take second place in
the Golden Bear Invitational
Tournament. The Aggies begin
conference play Wednesday.

Texas A&M soccer freshman
Ashlee Pistorious had a week
end most soccer players only
dream of.
Pistorious was honored Friday
night by getting her first colle
giate soccer start against in-state
rival University of Texas. Pistori
ous used the confidence boost to
score a second half goal that gave
the Aggies the lead to an eventual
3-1 win against the Longhorns.
The game-breaking goal
against Texas would have been
enough for most true freshmen.
However, Pistorious put on a
show for the fans in attendance
Sunday by scoring three goals in
a 6-1 win against Army, bring
ing her total goals scored to four
in only two collegiate starts.
“I had a great week of prac
tice,” Pistorious said. “The girls
on the team really pushed me
this week to raise my game. I
guess the hard work and practice
really paid of!.”
The Aggies seemed to be
running on all cylinders this
past weekend and look to be
back on track after a slow start
to the season.
“We learned some hard les
sons early in the season with
some tough losses,” said A&M
head coach G. Guerrieri. “But 1
think it’s safe to say that we’ve
given up our last bit of charity to
our opponents.”
A record crowd of 5,384 was
on hand Friday at the Aggie
Soccer Complex to witness what
many considered to be a preview
of the Big 12 Soccer Champi
onship; however, the Aggies
looked sluggish early, giving up
a goal to Texas’ Amy Burling
ton, resulting in a 1-0 deficit.
“At halftime we made an
emphasis to keep up and play
hard,” Guerrieri said. “We
wrote two words on the board:
Urgency and composure. The
girls did a wonderful job of
staying in the moment and
playing to their abilities.”
The Aggies came out in
the second half with new life.
A&M junior Laura Probst’s
corner kick goal started a sec
ond half rally in which the Ag
gies scored three unanswered
goals and notched a come-
from-behind conference win
against their in-state rival.
"This was a huge win for us,”
Probst said. “The team really
wanted to win this game for all
the fans that came out for the
game. I’m just glad we were
able to pull out the win.”
After Friday’s game, Texas
head coach Chris Petrucelli was
left wondering where his team’s
first half intensity went.
“We just didn’t bring the
same intensity in the second half
that we had in the first (half),”
Petrucelli said. “Sometimes
games just don’t go your way
and 1 guess this was just one of
those games.”
The Aggies used Friday’s
big win against Texas to propel
them to a 6-1 win on Sunday
against Army.
Four Aggie players scored in
a game that featured a goal oft* a

senior captain Amanda Burke.
The Aggies finished the
weekend series against Army
and Texas by scoring nine goals
and allowing only two.
“Our team is playing with
a lot of heart right now,”
Guerrieri said. “We’re going
to keep practicing hard, and
hopefully we can translate
that same work ethic into next
week’s games.”
