COLUMBIA — The Missouri women’s soccer team lost 4-1 to No. 2-ranked Texas A&M on Friday in the semifinals of the Big 12 Conference Tournament in San Antonio.

Tigers freshman forward Alysha Bonnick scored the first goal of the game in the 15th minute on a header. 
Texas A&M (17-2-2) tied it less than 10 minutes later, however, then knocked in goals in the, 39th, 54th and 67th minutes.
