Junior forward Ally Watt scored at 47:15 by stripping the ball from the defender.

The Texas A&M soccer team earned two more wins at home over the weekend, defeating Oklahoma 3-1 Friday evening and shutting out Santa Clara 4-0 Sunday night.
The Aggies were ranked No. 8 heading into their matchup against the No. 9 Broncos on Sunday, and emerged from the game with a season record of 6-0-0.
During Friday’s win over the Sooners, junior midfielder Grace Piper made her first two goals of the season while junior forward Ally Watt earned her fifth.
Toward the end of a mostly uneventful first half, the Aggies conceded their first goal of the season. A corner kick from senior midfielder Marissa McMahand lead to an assist from junior midfielder Kristina O’Donnell and resulted in the goal by freshman defender Hailey Davidson. Davidson’s shot from the top of the penalty box bounced off the top post and fell in behind senior goalkeeper Cosette Morche, giving the Sooners the lead.
A&M’s chances in the second half came more often and proved more effective, as the Aggies maintained possession strongly throughout the remainder of the game.
The Aggies quickly took action at the start of the second half. After a corner kick at the 47th minute, assists from freshman midfielder Kendall Bates and senior defender Kendall Ritchie found Piper inside the penalty box, allowing her to sneak the ball through the left side of the goal for the equalizer.
Ten minutes passed before the Aggies tallied another goal. After a header from freshman forward Ásdís Halldórsdóttir was blocked, Piper seized the opportunity and tapped in her second goal of the night, putting the Aggies in the lead.
At the midpoint of the second half, Piper’s long cross from the outside of the penalty box found Watt inside, allowing her a header that became the third goal of the night for the Aggies, closing out their win.
The Aggies will be back in action at Ellis Field on Friday at 8 p.m., taking on Colorado College.
