The Aggies opened their 48th season at home on a brisk Saturday evening in College Station against the DBU Patriots. Like many Aggie games in the decades prior, the teams waged a battle under the glow of field lights on a grass field at Penberthy. The Ags went on to defeat the Patriots 22-2.
Aggie stats: GW Bodden (#93, Jr A TMI) 5g 1a, Ardi Elliott #0, So A Legacy Christian Academy) 4g 2a, Auggie Buerkle (#16, Sr A Bowie) 3g 1a, Chris Buell (#23 So M Highland Park) 1g, AJ Hepting (#24 Sr A Kingwood) 1g 3a, Reed Cameron (#40 Fr A Austin High) 1g 1a, Clayton Nugent (#10 So M Houston Christian) 1g, Josh Fox (#8 Fr M Foothill, CA) 1g, Camden Beck (#32 So M Stratford), Nick Leverich (#3 Jr A McDonough, MD) 1g, Dawson Merrill (#99 Fr M Anderson) 2g, rounded out the scoring for Texas A&M.

Aggies – 46 ground balls, DBU – 12 ground balls
The Ags started the game with a 9-0 run in the first quarter and never looked back. Dallas Baptist was well drilled and disciplined and this game provided both squads with much needed live game playing time to sharpen their skills for their 2019 campaigns.
Both teams were tested by the newly implemented 80-second shot clock and the Aggies would like to thank the Doc Hall Foundation for the generous donation of timing hardware.
