Texan defenders managed to thwart the Hornets’ attempts at an equalizer, holding on for the 1-0 victory.

Northwest looked cold starting the game but built some momentum toward the end of the first half. The Texans gave up several 50-50 balls as the team struggled around midfield.

“We’re still trying to get an identity in the midfield,” Northwest soccer coach Brent Beeson said. “Parker Bishop did a great job.”

The Texans came alive and turned up the intensity with the lone game goal of the second half.

“They got their legs in the second half. They were poised and composed and played well,” Beeson said.

Northwest goalkeeper Sage Ricker did his part as well, keeping the Texans on top by shutting down several Azle attempts.

The relatively young Texan team (3-6), is vying for one of four playoff spots.

Beeson said Northwest soccer is finally seeing signs of life after three years of tough times following the school split with Byron Nelson.

Northwest will host Fossil Ridge Friday.
