Northwest Texans Soccer Start Strong
The Northwest Texans soccer team has had a promising start to this season. The team is looking for their first playoff appearance since the 2017--18 season and they have already posted a couple of great wins against some strong opponents. VYPE DFW takes a dive into the team's schedule and what fans should expect from the Texans' soccer program this season:
Last year, the team had a season that left them wanting more. Although they fought hard and were able to come up with a handful of great wins, the team fell short of making the playoffs. However, this season the team is turning a new leaf and playing strong in order to show their opponents and fans alike that they are built differently.
The Texans opened up their season with two strong wins. The first win was a 1-0 victory over Azle. The victory saw a goal from Mike Garcia on an assist from Brayden Bailey. Their second victory was a 2-0 victory over Fort Worth Boswell in which freshman Grayson Bowler one goals as well as tallied an assist while Alex Ekstrand scored a goal of his own for the Texans. Although the team fought hard in their third game of the season against Corsicana in a tournament, the Texans fell 0-1.
With strong newcomers and a handful of seasoned athletes on the field, the Texans are looking at what could be an incredible season and maybe even a deep playoff push. The team has already shown what kind of consistency and communication they have on the field as well as what kind of outcome that can produce. If the team can push through preseason with more strong wins, fans can expect them to do much of the same in district play as they face off against the likes of Grapevine, Lake Dallas, Denton, Colleyville Heritage, and more!
