Clear Springs Outlasts Eisenhower in Shootout: In the best delayed game of the weekend, Clear Springs rode junior Matt Guidry to the 53-50 victory. The junior rushed for 204, added 184 receiving and scored five total touchdowns. Eisenhower’s Donald Catalon also turned in a solid day, picking up 202 yards on the ground and two touchdowns. The Chargers finished with 549 yards of total offense.

Walter Brothers Continue to Pace Crosby: For the second time in two weeks, Austin and Aston Walter have combined for over 500 yards in a Crosby win. This week they week they did it in a comeback win over Dayton, with the Cougars down 27-17 at halftime. With Austin rushing for 188 yards in the second half and a stout defense, Crosby outscored the Broncos 16-0 in the second half to remain unbeaten at 4-0.

Cy-Fair Continues to Impress In Spite of Delay: Cy-Fair and Langham Creek played just over eight minutes before the game was delayed to Saturday. The two then delivered a rare defensive standoff the next day. In the end, Bobcats RB Dillon Birden proved to be the difference. Despite leaving the game twice due to an ankle injury, Birden paced the Bobcats offense with 133 yards on 26 totes. Cy-Fair is now 3-0 for the first time since 2011.

Westside QB Haywood Has Big Day: In a 72-13 blistering of Kempner, Michael Haywood showed off his potential as a dual-threat passer. The senior threw for 207 yards and rushed for 203 in producing six total touchdowns. He has the Wolves off to a 3-1 start with district just around the corner. He has the skill to lead Westside to impressive upsets this season.
