Thursday, October 25, 2012 | 9:54 p.m. CDT

After battling back to tie the game in the final minutes, the Missouri women's soccer team lost 2-1 to Texas A&M in overtime Thursday in College Station, Texas, in the Tigers' last regular contest.

Texas A&M senior midfielder Chelsea Jones was left unmarked on a cross from sophomore forward Shea Groom and calmly placed the winning goal into the right side of the net with 3:53 left in the extra period.

Missouri (13-6) had the momentum going into overtime after sophomore midfielder Kaysie Clark scored to make it 1-1 with a little more than eight minutes left.

Tigers senior forward Haley Krentz crossed the ball in from the right side to junior midfielder Dominique Richardson, who whiffed on the shot before Clark got to the ball, turned and fired it into the net.

Aggies sophomore forward Annie Kunz was responsible for the first score of the night, beating Missouri freshman goalkeeper McKenzie Sauerwein in the 69th minute to go up 1-0.

Despite losing four of their past five games, Missouri still tied the school record of 13 regular season victories. The Tigers are the No. 5 overall seed going into next week’s Southeastern Conference tournament.
