In its first match of the season, the University of Texas’ soccer team suffered two losses.

Texas announced on Wednesday that forward Mikayla Flores would miss the rest of the season after she tore the anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee. A redshirt sophomore from La Verne, Calif., Flores sustained the injury during Texas’ season-opening loss to the University of Seattle on Aug. 19. This is the second significant injury in a three-year span for Flores as she was sidelined during the 2014 season due to an ACL tear in her right knee.

Flores ranked second on Texas’ roster in points (10) in 2015, and she was tied for second in goals (three) and assists (four). Flores was a member of the Big 12’s All-Freshman Team last year.
