Late goal gives MU soccer team tie with Texas

Saturday, October 3, 2009 | 8:55 p.m. CDT; updated 10:58 a.m. CST, Thursday, November 19, 2009

The Missouri soccer team left Austin, Texas, with a point after Michelle Collins scored with 1:01 left in regulation to tie with the Longhorns at 1 and force two scoreless overtime periods.

Collins' goal came after she beat her defender and took a 25-yard pass down the left side from sophomore Kelsey Blincow. It was her team-leading, fourth goal of the season.

The goal was only the second goal allowed by Texas in three Big 12 Conference games.

Missouri outshot Texas 24-10 led by senior Kristin Andrighetto's seven attempts. The Tigers also led 7-5 in shots on goal.

The tie preserves both the Tigers' (6-4-2, 1-0-1) and Longhorns' (4-5-2, 1-0-2) unbeaten conference records.

Missouri plays at No. 15 Texas A&M at 4 p.m. Sunday. The game will be nationally televised on ESPNU.
