Cinco Ranch, Jordan, Katy, Mayde Creek, Morton Ranch, Paetow and Tompkins all posted wins last weekend. Several played at mid-season form in August.
Cinco Ranch senior QB Gavin Rutherford, for example, completed 24-of-33 passes for 391 yards and five TDs as the Cougars rolled to victory over College Park. His passing yardage is the second-highest total in Cougar football history, according to Cinco Ranch head coach Chris Dudley. Cougar WR Noah Abboud pulled down 12 catches for 213 yards and three scores.
State-ranked Katy outran Clear Springs, 49-16, with senior RB Seth Davis rushing for three TDs and 270 yards, a 12.9-yard average carry. The Tigers dominated Friday’s contest on the offensive line as Katy averaged 10.8 yards per carry on the ground.
These strong stats supports the District 19-6A reputation as the toughest in Texas since the nine teams averaged eight victories in 2021. Last weekend these seven winners outscored their competition, 250-88, or an average score of 35.7-12.6.
Six-of-seven local 6A victors held their foes to fewer 20 points, and Mayde Creek posted a 30-0 shutout over Westside as Ram QB Carldell Beard completed 12-of-15 passes for 105 yards, one TD.
The Jordan Warriors also posted a strong performance, posting a 64-14 win over Davis. QB Colin Willets completed 9-of-16 passes for 174 yards and four TDs. Sophomore Andrew Marsh led Jordan receivers with five catches for 92 yards, three TDs.
