OXFORD, Miss. - In a match-up of ranked teams, it was the higher ranked team that got the better of the day as No. 22 Ole Miss (8-1, 1-1) suffered its first loss of the season, falling to No. 10 Texas A&M (8-1, 2-0) by a score of 4-0 on Sunday.

The loss earned Ole Miss a split in the opening weekend of Southeastern Conference play as the Rebels picked up a 4-1 win over Arkansas on Friday night to kick-off conference play. That win also set the school record for wins to open a season with eight consecutive victories.

Ole Miss out-shot the Aggies 14-to-11 on the afternoon, and by an even wider margin of 11-to-6 in the second half, but 10th-ranked Texas A&M converted its shots and got solid play from goalkeeper Jordan Day to pick up the win.

"It was tough that we got in the hole early and were down two goals," said Ole Miss head coach Matthew Mott. "We kept pressing and creating on the attack, we just didn't get the bounces today for sure. They're a good team and we will just move on and keep fighting.

"We're happy with a split in the opening weekend," Mott said. "We battled hard today and I liked our toughness and composure. We had a good performance on Friday. We'll move onto next weekend. It doesn't get any easier as we head off to Missouri and prepare for the next four games on the road."

Texas A&M got on the board with its first goal in the seventh minute when Annie Kunz scored the first of two goals off an assist from Meghan Streight to put the Aggies on the board. Streight then sent in another assist to Shea Groom in the 30th minute to give Texas A&M the 2-0 lead.

The Aggies would hold that advantage at the half.

Kunz scored her second goal of the afternoon in the 53rd minute when she took a ball from Lindsey Witz outside the box and sent it in to give the visiting Aggies the three-goal lead.

Texas A&M added its final goal of the afternoon in the 68th minute when Allie Bailey got a header in the box and put it in the net for the 4-0 margin of victory.

Ole Miss will return to action next weekend, kicking off a four-game road trip in league play that will start with the Missouri Tigers on Friday night at 7 p.m. The Rebels will then head to Alabama to take on the Crimson Tide on Sunday at 1 p.m.
