THE WOODLANDS, TX -- The last week of the season is right around the corner for the teams of 13-6A, and the tension is high. The bottom half of the district is outside of the playoffs, but a final push between rivals will determine who enters the playoffs and who will be left behind. Here are the games from last week, along with the scores for each.

1/31 The Woodlands vs. Caney Creek

The Woodlands hosted Caney Creek to kick off the week’s action, and their playoff hopes rested on winning.

An explosive first half set the tone in favor of the Lady Highlanders, and their effort continued to pile up throughout the game. The command on offense from The Woodlands kept the team a constant step ahead of Caney Creek to the final buzzer. The final score of 74-31 Woodlands kept the Lady Highlanders as the fourth-place team in the standings and the playoff picture.

1/31 Oak Ridge vs. College Park

After losing the number one spot to Grand Oaks, the Lady War Eagles needed a victory against College Park.

Quarter-by-quarter statistics are unavailable, but the limited contributions from the Lady Cavaliers ensured the team struggled to keep up with Oak Ridge. Scoring throughout the Lady War Eagle roster pushed the team toward the eventual 41-35 win.

1/31 Conroe vs. Grand Oaks

Grand Oaks was determined to hold their top spot in the district, with the Lady Tigers set to visit.

Things were off to a shaky start for the Lady Grizzlies during the first half, but the squad kept a steady composure and a six-point lead going into the halftime break. Some adjustments during the pause saw drastic changes come on Conroe’s side. The changes saw the team slowly tune up offensive production while keeping Grand Oaks’ scoring in check. The combined showing on both ends allowed the Lady Tigers to fight back and secure a 38-36 win that pushed Grand Oaks back to number two.

1/31 New Caney vs. Cleveland

The winless Lady Indians hit the road, hoping things might work out against New Caney on Wednesday.

Unfortunately for Cleveland, their streak continued due to the lack of consistent scoring from quarter to quarter. A double-digit quarter was followed by a single-digit effort that scuttled any hope of coming away with a win. New Caney was given the luxury of scoring when the opportunities presented themselves, and the team cashed them in for a 53-36 victory.

2/2 Willis vs. The Woodlands

Hoping to secure their playoff bid, the Lady Highlanders put in work against the Ladykats in the only Friday game of the week.

The last game of The Woodlands’ season signaled the team to give their all against Willis, and the effort demonstrated it. A suffocating defense kept the Ladykats off the board for a majority of the game, while a lights-out performance from every member of the Lady Highlander squad racked up points with ease. Contributions from The Woodlands bench rounded out the game as the Lady Highlanders ended their season with a 59-28 win that poises the team for a playoff spot.

2/3 College Park vs. New Caney

The Lady Cavaliers looked to get back in the win column during their matchup with New Caney.

Total dominance from College Park illustrated the difference between the district’s top teams and its bottom half. The Lady Eagles failed to score double-digit points in all four quarters, allowing College Park to control the score at their own pace. 36 points from the team in the first half was all the Lady Cavs needed to secure the win against New Caney. The final buzzer sounded with College Park getting a 52-21 win.

2/3 Caney Creek vs Oak Ridge

Oak Ridge found themselves as the district’s top team due to Grand Oaks’ loss ahead of their matchup against Caney Creek on Saturday.

Quarter-by-quarter statistics are unavailable, but another strong showing from Oak Ridge supplied the team with what it needed to secure the top seed in the district. A 55-29 victory gives the Lady War Eagles a one-game lead in the standings, with a single game left for all teams to catch up.

2/3 Cleveland vs. Conroe

Conroe’s two-game winning streak was primed to continue against the hosting Cleveland Lady Indians.

Quarter-by-quarter statistics are unavailable, but the final result of 66-35 in favor of Conroe supports a strong case of offensive dominance from the Lady Tigers. The continued winning streak for Conroe keeps the team on a gradual rise up the district standings, where they currently sit at third.
