By Tom Behrens Marquee playoff matchups are typically hard to find in the first round of the UIL state football playoffs. And in a way, that’s by design. The matchup of the best teams should come later in the six rounds that are required to win an 11-man state championship. How they got here: In the largest two classifications, 6A and 5A, after the top four finishers from a district are determined, they are placed […]

Seven Lakes Wins Finale, 42-34, over Morton Ranch

Friday’s game against Morton Ranch was a case in point. In it, Seven Lakes began strong and rolled up a 32-point halftime lead, only to see the Mavericks come back with a strong second half.

By George Slaughter Seven Lakes celebrated its Senior Night with a hard-fought 42-35 victory over Mayde Creek Friday night at Legacy Stadium. But in describing the game as “hard-fought,” two connotations come to mind. One connotation was the competitiveness of the game. The Spartans never trailed, but Mayde Creek kept fighting back with big plays to stay in the contest. The Rams, in fact, were threatening to tie the game with less than a minute […]

By Tom Behrens FOOTBALL Houston Strake Jesuit 35, Tompkins 10 “In the first half we kind of let it get away from us,” said Tompkins Head Coach, Todd McVey. “In the second half we basically played to a 7-7 tie,” but the Falcons lost to Strake Jesuit 35-10 at Clay Stadium. “We were working on keeping Nathaniel Beal, Strake Jesuit wide receiver, from making a bunch of plays. He had a few catches. We were […]
