Texas grudge match on tap

Ashlee Pistorius broke the Texas A&M career record for goals and points with two goals in the first nine minutes of the Aggies' 4-1 win over Stephen F. Austin on Thursday in the first round of the NCAA Division I Women's Tournament.

The win set up a grudge match Saturday at College Station between A&M and Texas, a 2-0 winner over BYU on a pair of goals by Alisha Ortiz.

Texas A&M won, 2-0, when they met during the regular season. Texas beat the Aggies, 2-1, last Sunday in the Big 12 final.

Pistorius, who was recruited as a soccer and basketball player, has scored 81 goals and 194 points in four years, breaking through the A&M career record previously held by Bryn Blalack.

Pistorius showed her versatility, scoring on a header on a ball played to the far post by Amy Berend and then beating two players on the dribbling before breaking clear for her second goal.

She said A&M was out to get the job done early against SFA after falling in the Big 12 final.

"I think we used some of the momentum [from our Big 12 Tournament loss to Texas]," she said. "We knew we had to come out and win the next game. Now it's win or go home. We just wanted to come out and take it to them."

Both of Ortiz's goals for UT also came early. She scored in the 10th minute, faking out BYU goalkeeper Erika Woodbury after taking a feed from Niki Arlitt, and again eight minutes later on a rebound.

The Longhorns had been stunned when they weren't seeded. They began the regular season as they ended it with a 2-1 win over UCLA, the only loss the top-ranked Bruins would suffer all season.
