Washington State Soccer Falls to No. 3 Texas A&M
Sept. 28, 2003
Washington State would not be able to come back from a first half, two-goal deficit to No. 3 Texas A&M Sunday, Sept. 28 at the Aggie Soccer Complex, College Station, Texas.
A&M Forward Kat Krambeer scored her fourth goal of the season in the 35th minute, giving the Aggies a one goal lead. Krambeer received the ball in the middle of the penalty area from consecutive passes from Kristen Strutz to Amanda Burke to Krambeer. Krambeer beat WSU goalkeeper Katie Hultin low and to the left for her fourth goal of the season.
Washington State forward Rachel Rodrick countered with a shot at the 36:58 mark, requiring Texas A&M goalkeeper Katie Jo Spisak to make one of three saves she recorded in the first half.
The Aggies went up 2-0 with 3:41 left in the first half on Becky Olson's second goal of the season. Olson spun to beat a defender at the top of the 18-yard box and hit a left-footed shot past Hultin to make the score 2-0. Texas A&M midfielder Laura Probst is credited with an assist on the goal.
At the 67:36 mark the Cougars had a corner kick opportunity taken by junior Megan Cecchini. WSU had another scoring chance 19 seconds later when senior midfielder Kim Morgan took a shot that was saved by Spisak.
The match left the Cougars 3-6-0 and the Aggies 8-1-0, and improved their consecutive home unbeaten streak to 21.
Washington State comes home next weekend to play Idaho State at 3 p.m. at the Lower Soccer Field.
