The Texas softball team is one win away from the next round, and one win from eliminating its bitter rival. After the Longhorns defeated the Texas A&M Aggies 2-1 on Saturday afternoon and sent the team to the elimination bracket, the two meet again on Sunday at 1 p.m. CT.
In this double elimination tournament, Texas holds the advantage in the final matchup. The Aggies (2-1) need two wins to eliminate the Longhorns (2-0) in Austin.
We don’t want to underrate A&M who gave Texas a battle in the first matchup. The team held a 1-0 lead before the Longhorns came back to win 2-1. The Aggies have four key players batting above .300 with Julia Cottrill and Trinity Cannon over 1.000 in on base plus slugging percentage. Even so, it will be an uphill battle for the Lone Star rivals from College Station.
Texas will look to move to the next round with an early win.
