           Wildcats 2, Warriors 0
    Sulphur Springs was the home team and kept the ball most of the night. Bonham never had any real threat to score with the ball possessed by the Wildcats the entire game.
    Sulphur Springs' first attempt to score missed the mark in the first minute. But the Wildcats got on the scored with 34:41 left in the first half when Josue Roque caught up to a nice pass, split through Bonham defenders and booted in a goal perfectly placed in the corner of the net.
    Sulphur Springs had the 1-0 lead, but seemed poised to pad the margin and had several chances.
    Andy Green had a shot sail off target 10 minutes into the game. Roque was set up near the goal, but his attempt a header score missed the mark with 26:01 to go in the opening half.
    Bonham was playing well enough on defense to gum up another other scoring tries. Sulphur Springs controlled the ball, but their lead was just a lone goal at 1-0 as the opening 40 minutes came to a close.
    In the second half, the Wildcats were determined to score again. Roque had a shot go wide and Adrian Lopez was off target, his high blast almost clearing the fence and bounding onto Houston Street. Brian Dela Rosa tired to get into the act and get on the scoreboard, but his try with 25:51 left went wide by several feet.
     The lone goal of the second half was scored by Juan Gomez. The junior player lined up the shot, just as the goalie of Bonham took position. His kick dropped like a split-finger fastball near the goal and skidded by the defender for the second and final goal of the game.
    “It was a good win for us last night. We controlled the game the whole night and played well. We would've loved to score a few more goals but Bonham did a good job making it hard for us to break them down. We are excited about being 2-0 in district and have to quickly get ready for tonight's game against Princeton,” said coach Andy Holt
