MORNING BRIEFING: Longhorn stars fire away

MORNING BRIEFING: Longhorn stars fire away

Texas Longhorn defenders Stephanie Logterman and Kasey Moore are firing on all cylinders.

Logterman scored twice in the No. 11 Longhorns' opener, a 4-0 win over Samford, and Moore followed up with two goals on Thursday in a 3-1 victory at Kentucky.

Texas was trailing, 1-0, when it scored three goals in two minutes. Moore scored on a rebound in the 57th minute and a minute later dribbled the ball up the left side and fired the shot from the top of the box give UT the lead.

Freshman Amanda Lisberger completed the scoring.

TEST FOR YOUNG AGGIES. The new-look Texas A&M Aggies get an early test when they host No. 2 North Carolina.

With heavy graduation losses, A&M started four freshmen -- defender Brianne Young, midfielders Beth West and Rachael Balaguer and forward Jennifer Kmezich -- in its opener against Rhode Island. West scored and Young and Kmezich had assists in the Aggies' 3-2 win. Transfer Alyssa Mautz, who came off the bench, also scored.

The Aggies downed North Carolina, 1-0, in 2006 before an NCAA women's regular-season record crowd of 8,204 in College Station. They met against last year in Chapel Hill, where UNC came out victorious, 2-1.

"No matter who our opponent is," said Coach G Guerrieri, "we have to improve and we have to get better. That's our emphasis this week, coming out to push each other and help our teammates get better. This is a game that people won't expect us to win because of the history, because they have a hall of fame coaching staff and they have so many players who have national team credentials in their background. We really have the maximum respect for the way that they go about their play, the way that they prepare and the way that they compete. It will be a great challenge and a good early season evaluation to see how we stack up against a team that is generally regarded year in and year out as being one of the top teams."
