The Texas State soccer team is coming off of a 2-1 victory over New Mexico State University as the Bobcats turn their attention to their home opener against the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Islanders.
The Bobcats will host the Islanders Friday, who are coming off a 3-0 victory over Texas Southern. They will play Northwestern State’s team, which is following a 3-0 loss to Louisiana-Monroe, on Sunday.
Ali Myers, senior midfielder, stressed the importance of defensive cohesiveness. As long as the defensive backline is balanced and pressures the opponent, players can prevent counter-attacks and other scoring opportunities.
