“It’s been a hard lesson for us to learn, to start the game with the same aggressiveness that we get in the second quarter or the second half,” Northwest coach Mike Hatch said. “We come out a little passive, trying to feel the team out in the first quarter.”

The Texans kept it going in the third and fourth quarters outscoring Paschal in each of the final two periods.

Three Texans made it to double-digits in scoring. Todd Christensen scored 12 points. Elijah Christman and Jeremy Bartlett both put up 10. Josh Tatum finished with eight points and eight assists. Casey Jimison and David Ogunwolu both added five.

The Texans opened district play against Haltom on Tuesday and will travel to Southlake Carroll on Friday.
