Texas advances through PKs

Facing Colorado for the second time in six days, this time in the first round of Big XII Tournament, Texas was able to survive and advance over the #7 seed Buffaloes, in penalty kicks (4-2).

After defeating Colorado 4-1 a few days ago, Colorado controlled the match, forcing goalkeeper Dianna Pfenniger to make 11 saves on 22 shots, as opposed to 3 saves by the Colorado keeper on 20 shots. It was an all around great game for Pfenniger who stopped two penalty kicks and also made the game winning shot to send Texas into the next round.

Texas will move on to face the #6 seed Oklahoma State Cowgirls on Friday, after they upset the #3 seed Kansas Jayhawks 3-0. Texas lost their only meeting with Oklahoma State 1-0 in Stillwater.
