Aggies Fall in In-State Rivalry

The ladies showed strong this past weekend against Utah and BYU, but were unable to pull out a win. The Aggies took on Utah on Thursday night losing 2-1. The solo Aggie goal came from senior Lauren Hansen off of a cross from freshman Kendra Pemberton. Saturday the Aggies hosted No. 9 BYU and fell 3-0. Despite the loss, it was a good day to be an Aggie because of the way the girls played, some successful things they were able to do in the second half, and just the overall effort of the team. The team had several chances on goal and goalkeeper Molli Merrill had several saves throughout the game to keep the Aggies in it.

This coming weekend, the Aggies travel to Louisiana Tech and New Mexico State to start WAC play! Good luck ladies!

Last weekend, the Aggies traveled to Southern California to take on No. 24 Long Beach State on Friday and San Diego State on Sunday. We arrived in California on Thursday afternoon and had a light practice at LBSU followed by dinner in Belmont Shore and a quick walk down to the beach to enjoy the sunset! Friday rolled around, we arrive at LBSU geared up to play, and ended up scoring in the 4th minute off of a corner kick that Kendra Pemberton found the end of! We held the lead until half way through the second half when Long Beach scored off a free kick and then a few minutes later off of a through ball served over the top past our defenders. We ended up losing 2-1, however, it was the first time in Aggie Soccer history that we have led a top 25 team in a game!

On Saturday, we had a light workout in the morning, then headed down to Coronado Island where the Tillotson family opened their home to the team and the families who traveled. The girls enjoyed volleyball on the beach and an afternoon to relax a little before our Sunday game against San Diego State!

San Diego State was a tight game. We tied 1-1. We fell behind at the beginning of the 2nd half until Lauren Hansen poked the ball in the back of the net which took us into double overtime!

Despite the loss and a tie, it was still a strong showing for the Aggies! This weekend we are at home on Friday vs. Colorado College at 4pm and Sunday at 1pm vs. Cal Poly SLO.
