The Missouri women's soccer team fell short in its effort to reach the Big 12 Tournament final when it lost 3-0 to Texas A&M in a late semifinal match Friday in San Antonio, Texas.

Scoring opportunities were scarce for both teams, but the Aggies showed more accuracy on goal and were able to convert their chances.

Texas A&M freshman forward Merritt Mathias' goal gave her team the lead 16 minutes into the game. Freshman forwards Kelley Monogue and Annie Kunz both scored in the second half to secure the Aggie victory.

Texas A&M will play Oklahoma State on Sunday in the conference championship game.

Although the Tigers are out of the race for the Big 12 championship, the winner of which is guaranteed a spot in the NCAA Tournament, they can still get a bid to the tournament, which starts Nov. 11.

Missouri finished 3-5 in Big 12 play after finishing nonconference play with a 9-2-0 record. The Tigers had a .909 winning percentage against nonconference teams,a record for the program.
