Austin Aztex remained undefeated but they were unable to find a goal as they had to settle for a scoreless draw against Misssissippi Brilla at Arrow Field in Clinton on Thursday night.
Despite not achieving the ideal result, it still sees the Aztex well clear at the top of the Mid-South Conference, five points clear of Brilla and Laredo Heat.
Austin started the match well as they completely dominated the possession in the early stages, but Brilla put all their men behind the ball, making it difficult for the Aztex to break through.
But Brilla thought back with Len Smith using his strength to break through the Aztex and were looking dangerous on set pieces.
In the 25th minute Brilla started to take control and a set-piece gave them a good opportunity as the Austin defense left a man open but were spared by a good save from Devin Perales.
That seemed to spark the Aztex in to action and they started to control the match again after the half hour mark and saw Adam Black creating a decent chance in the 36th minute with his shot from distance taking a deflection but being denied by a quick save.
Austin ad a chance late in the half as Kalen Ryden and Tony Rocha linked up well to release Ryden down the center but was denied as the Aztex defense swarmed and covered to stop the chance and keep it scoreless at half time.
The second half saw Austin continue their threat from the end of the first half as they pressed high and really put the pressure on Mississippi.
Austin maintained control throught the entire second half and broight on more attacking players in Bubacarr Jobe and Eddie Campbell as an attempt was made to pile even more pressuer on Brilla.
There were plenty of shots from the Aztex as they peppered the Mississippi goal with chances but they could not find the goal, keeping the match scoreless at the end of the match.
The two teams will have an opportunity to get a goal against their opponents as the two teams face off again on Saturday at the same venue.
