Texas blew out the Missouri soccer team Sunday afternoon. The Tigers fell 6-0 in Austin, Texas just two days after defeating sixth-ranked Texas A&M in Lubbock.

Missouri (6-9-1, 3-5-0) opened on the offensive, controlling the ball for much of the first half, but Texas broke free for several long runs and shots gaining a 2-0 lead at the half. Five of the Longhorns six goals came after the 40-minute mark.

Kelly McDonald, Ashley Foster and Kelsey Carpenter scored two goals apiece for Texas (9-5-1, 4-3-1).

The Tigers were outshot 19-13, and only put one shot on goal. Kira Reyes received her first start in goal this year, making four saves. Regular keeper Laura Buehrig sat out after receiving a red card in Friday’s match with the Aggies, an NCAA rule.


The Tigers are in fifth place after one day of play at the Lady Razorback Invitational. Missouri shot an opening round 309 at the three-day event at Pinnacle Country Club in Rogers, Ark.

Denise Knaebel led the Tigers with a first-round 74, putting her in a tie for fifth individually. Teammate Maria Ohlsson tied for 18th with a five-over-par 77.

Iowa State is in first at 297. The second and eighth-place teams are separated by only nine strokes.
