Two months ago, Justin Northwest coach Bill Poe said that they were creating something special this season.

The Texans wanted to get back to what they accomplished in 2016 when they made program history.

Northwest is headed in the right direction after winning its fourth-straight game 73-33 vs. Fort Worth Wyatt on Thursday in a District 4-5A Division II game at Northwest ISD Stadium.

The 73 points marked a season-high and four minutes in, the Texans already had a two-touchdown lead.

The Texans beat Wyatt for their fourth-straight win on Thursday night. They improve to 5-2 overall and 3-0 in district play.

Austin Ahmad threw four touchdown passes to three receivers and Montana State commit DeMareus Hosey ran for three scores before the break.

The Texans (5-2, 3-0) scored on their first two drives when Ahmad found Quentin Lee for a 16-yard touchdown pass for a 7-0 lead.

After Wyatt turned the ball over on downs, Northwest scored two plays later on Hosey’s 3-yard run with eight minutes in the first quarter.

Chase Stearns picked off a Wyatt pass attempt, but the Chaparrals got it right back on the following play when Cameren Graves took it 65 yards for a pick-six to cut the lead to 14-6 midway through the first.

Hosey added TD runs in the first half from 37 and 30 yards, and rushed for 158 at the break.

Ahmad’s fourth TD pass of the half went to Antonio Reese for 57 yards and Cooper McDonald added a 59-yard pick-six as the Texans nearly matched their previous season-high (59) after one half.

Ahmad went 9 of 16 for 165 yards and added his fifth TD from 26 yards to Lee, who had four catches for 92 yards and three TDs.

Reese caught a 64-yard TD pass from backup Brandon Etchieson in the second half. Northwest gained 455 yards of total offense. Devin Steptoe picked off two passes on defense.

Wyatt (2-3, 1-1) finished with 341 yards. Fields went 22 of 53 for 322 yards and two TDs, and added a TD rush.
