On Feb 2nd the Aggies headed up to Fort Worth, TX for a Saturday afternoon game against the TCU Horned Frogs.
Still looking for that spark, the Ags struggled to find cohesive team play on either end of the field and TCU bested the Ags in the first quarter 1-2. The Aggies re-focused for the second quarter and the offense started clicking. Maroon went on a 8-3 run in the second to climb on top for good.
Great ball movement on offense, tough man to man defense, and outstanding play between the boxes fueled the Aggie run up to the halftime whistle. In the second half the A&M fought against returning to 1st quarter play. Aggie shooters hit several pipes and the offense was only able to score 4 against the Frogs 5.
Holding off TCU’s momentum, A&M defeated the TCU Horned Frogs 13-10 and earned a late lunch. A special thanks to Aggie parents who put together a great tailgate for the team after the game.
The Aggie scorers: AJ Hepting (#24 Sr A Kingwood) 2a, Chris Buell (#23 So M Highland Park) 2g 1a, GW Bodden (#93, Jr A TMI) 4g 1a, Auggie Buerkle (#16, Sr A Bowie) 4g 2a, Chandler Locklear (#21 Sr M Magnolia) 3g 1a, James McDowell(#5 Fr M The Woodlands) 1g 1a, rounded out the scoring for Texas A&M.
