The Woodlands football win big over Klein Cain for fourth straight win
THE WOODLANDS, Texas— The Woodlands Highlanders remain unbeaten in District 15-6A after their 54-7 win over Klein Cain. The Highlanders get their fourth straight win of the season after beginning the 2018 season 0-2. The Woodlands will host Klein High School at Woodforest Bank Stadium Saturday Oct. 16.
The Highlanders opened the scoring with a Casey Sunseri pass to P.J. Villarreal on their first offensive drive. The Highlanders wouldn’t have to wait long for their second score, as Carter Doucet picked off Klein Cain and returned it 61-yards for a touchdown. The first half scoring would come to a halt for The Woodlands after a Fabrizio Pinton field goal in the second quarter.

Highlander junior Malik Johnson scored the first with a five-yard run, and on the ensuing kickoff, the Hurricanes returner was called for a safety. Less than a minute later, Bryeton Gilford brushed off a couple would be tacklers for the 46-yard touchdown.
