STARKVILLE, Miss. – Aaron Gordon’s young Mississippi State soccer squad faces its first SEC road action this weekend when it ventures to Texas A&M and LSU.

Friday’s 7:30 p.m. kickoff against the Aggies will be the first trip to College Station for the Bulldogs, but it’s a place Gordon is familiar with from his days on the staff at Texas Tech.

It will be the second meeting between the two squads, as TAMU claimed a 2-0 win on a rain-soaked Sunday afternoon in Starkville last season.

Heavy rains hit again last Friday for the Bulldogs’ SEC opener against Missouri. State fought valiantly in the contest before falling to 3-5 overall, 0-1 in SEC play with a 3-1 setback.

Senior Elisabeth Sullivan continued her stellar senior season, notching her ninth goal of the year. The Memphis native enters the weekend fourth in the nation and second in the SEC with 1.12 goals per game, while her nine total strikes rate third in the league and tie for 10th in the NCAA.

Freshman Annebel ten Broeke also finds herself among the nation’s elite, rating 16th in the country and second in the SEC with six assists. The Amsterdam, Netherlands, native’s tally is the third-most by a freshman in the Division I ranks this season.

Senior CJ Winship, the SEC’s Shine In The Moment feature, has played 495 of the team’s 720 minutes in goal, stopping 29 shots.

Winship and her teammates face a Texas A&M squad that fell out of the NSCAA/Continental Tire Top 25 poll following a setback to Tennessee last weekend that dropped it to 5-3-1 overall and 0-1 in league play.

The Aggies have been paced by six goals from Kelley Monogue with Shea Groom’s five goals missing from the lineup due to injury.

The Bulldog attack will face one of the league’s best goalkeepers in Jordan Day, who has registered 31 saves against eight goals.
