After playing more than 89 scoreless minutes, Texas A&M snuck one in with just nine seconds left on the clock to claim the Big 12 Championship, handing Oklahoma State its first loss of the season in the process.

Controlling the offense for the majority of the game's final minute, Kelly Monogue tried the top left corner from the left side of the box, but the ball hit the crossbar and bounced out. Megan Majewski was in position at the right front of the box and took a shot at the goal.

It went across the goalie's face and toward the left side of the goal and in with just nine seconds remaining to play.

It was just the seventh goal Oklahoma State had given up all season, and just the fifth of the season for keeper Adrianna Franch.

Despite missing out on a conference title, as the No. 2 team in the nation the Cowgirls' run for a national title will continue in the NCAA Tournament. The selection ceremony will take place at 3:30 p.m. Monday.
