THE WOODLANDS, TX -- The last week of football before district play wrapped up with some 13-6A teams riding a wave of positive momentum. Others found themselves with more questions as to how they will shape themselves ahead of the packed district schedule.

College Park vs. Klein Cain

After a tough week one loss to Cinco Ranch, the College Park Cavaliers welcomed Klein Cain to Woodforest Bank Stadium for a Thursday night matchup.

It took little time for the Hurricanes to get their offense going with their fast-paced offense setting the tone straight away. Stalling offense from College Park and dominance of all phases of play saw Klein Cain climb ahead 34-20 at just the half.

The Cavaliers would only reach the endzone one more time before the final whistle sounded, ending their night in a 48-27 defeat.

Conroe vs. Eisenhower

Another quietly dominant performance was in the cards as Conroe hosted the Eisenhower Eagles on Friday.

The Tigers got on the board in the first quarter and never conceded a point to the Eagles. The slow Conroe offense was able to methodically attack their opponents and build a 14-0 lead going into the half.

After neither team scored in the third quarter, Conroe would double their points in the fourth while the defense kept their clean sheet intact. Conroe now enters district play with a 2-0 record following their shutout, 28-0 performance.

Caney Creek vs. Galena Park

In a bid to avenge last year’s defeat at the hands of the Yellow Jackets, Caney Creek sought to use their home crowd to secure a win.

It would be a slow-burner for both teams as neither offense could find traction due to the impressive defenses at play. Caney Creek would be the first team to score and never gave up the lead that they had fought for.

After the dust had settled, Caney Creek claimed a 27-7 victory to keep up their momentum in a complete 180 from where they sat last season.

Grand Oaks vs. Dobie

The Dobie Longhorns looked to prolong the suffering of Grand Oaks as the Grizzlies sought their first win of the season.

Grand Oaks found themselves in a hole early in the game with the Longhorns’ offense humming along to a 14-3 lead before halftime had arrived. The Grizzlies would notch their first and only touchdown of the game in the third quarter on the legs of Grant Smith.

Following their only touchdown, the Grizzlies would fall apart on defense and conceded 13 second-half points, leading to a final score of 27-10 in favor of Dobie.

The Woodlands vs. Lamar

After a brutal loss to the North Shore Mustangs, the Woodlands Highlanders sought to rebound against another tough opponent. This time, they traveled to take on the Lamar Texans on the road.

The road environment did not favor the Highlanders. Lamar would quickly begin dismantling the Woodlands’ defense and jump out to a commanding 35-7 lead with only one-half of football played.

The Highlanders would tack on some points in the third and fourth quarters but remained soundly behind Lamar. The final whistle would come and end a 45-21 beatdown by the Texans.

Oak Ridge vs. Stratford

With last week’s offensive futility on their minds, the Oak Ridge War Eagles sought changes against the Stratford Spartans.

Sparks would fly in the first quarter which saw both teams put up 21 points in a showcase of offensive spectacle. The War Eagles would finally separate themselves from Stratford with two more touchdowns in the second quarter.

The Spartans would mount a comeback that proved to be too late as Oak Ridge would claim victory 41-34.

Willis vs. Temple

Following last week’s 52-21 dismantling of Bryan Rudder, the Willis Wildkats would stay hot in their home game against the Temple Wildcats.

Both teams would trade scores in the first quarter with runs, passes, and even turnovers resulting in points. It would take until the second quarter for Willis and D.J. Lagway to create the separation they needed. 14 points in the second would be all that Willis needed to slam the door shut on Temple with the final score being 45-17.

New Caney vs. Porter

After a squeaker of a victory last week, New Caney sought to win more comfortably against the hosting Porter Spartans.

New Caney’s offense demonstrated their abilities with a 14-0 first-quarter lead that was established on the ground. Porter would reply with 14 points of their own in the second quarter but that was all that their offense could do against the Eagles.

Defensive stops and turnovers forced by New Caney dispatched Porter’s ability to make a comeback and resulted in a 31-14 victory for the Eagles.

Cleveland vs. Alvin

In their first home game of the season, the Cleveland Indians took on the Alvin Yellow Jackets.

The game started out terribly for Cleveland with Alvin jumping ahead by 14 in the first quarter with no signs of stopping. The Indians were able to muster 10 points in response but were still outshone by the Yellow Jackets who put up 13 in the second quarter.

After some scores in the third quarter both teams would go scoreless and ended the game in a 41-17 victory for Alvin.
