TEMPE, ARIZONA (September 7, 2014) The Texas Aggies fell in a heated match against the Arizona State Sun Devils by the score of 2-1 at the Sun Devil Soccer Classic on Sunday, September 7, 2014.
The Aggies were 2-0 against the Sun Devils prior to the game. In 1998, the Aggies won their first game against the Sun Devils with a score of 3-1. Last year, the Aggies won a commanding victory over the Sun Devils 3-1 at Ellis Field in College Station.
On this afternoon, with the temperatures reached 102 degrees in Sun Devil Soccer Stadium, the Aggies were unable to keep up with the sun and the Sun Devils.
In the stands packed with fans from both teams, cold water was as valuable as shade. Where there was an umbrella or shade structure, fans huddled for protection. Where there was a water source, fans would get inline and pay up to $7 a bottle.
On the field, the Aggies took an early lead when mid-fielder Mikaela Harvey passed to forward Kelley Monogue who scored in the 4th minute.
In the 41st minute, the Sun Devils tied the game with a corner kick from mid-fielder
Tommi Goodman; which was headed into the goal by Rachel Ometer.
The Sun Devils would score again in the 88th minute with a chip shot over the goalkeeper by Mackenzie Semerad. She was assisted by forward Jessica Raybe.
The Aggies next game will be Thursday night at 7 p.m. at home against FGCU. It will be viewable on the SEC Network and radio at 1150 AM.
