Friday’s District 6-5A match-up between the Northwest Texans and Saginaw Rough Riders will be between two teams in search of their first district win.

After a 3-0 start in non-district play, Northwest has dropped its first two district games against Eaton and Brewer.

Last week, Northwest was held to 235 yards of total offense in a 37-14 loss at home against Brewer.

In order to get back into the playoff race, Northwest will need to play better on defense. The team has allowed a combined 95 points the past two games and is allowing opposing teams to score 35 points per game for the season.

Saginaw is winless on the year. They lost 52-7 to Aledo last Friday night.

The Rough Riders defense has given up an average of more than 48 points per game this season. The Saginaw offense has averaged just eight points per game.

Northwest is hoping for a repeat of last year, when the Texans beat Saginaw 49-10.
