Mike Says: La Porte won in their big matchup earlier in the year against Port Arthur Memorial. I became a believer. But not a believer that thinks they can beat Katy (Sorry Bulldog fans). Katy is a machine. They were tested last week by a talented and prepared Cypress Woods team. Each time you thought Cypress Woods had the Tigers down, they came roaring back. This one will be closer than the previous years but Katy will still win big. The TIGERS win 42-21!!!

Chris Says: These teams won the first and second weekly FAN CHAMPIONSHIPS to end the regular season, so they both have fanatic followers.  Regardless of who wins, it will be an electric atmosphere when they take the field at Tully.  If you want to understand Texas high school football - go to THIS game!  As much as I love the La Porte Bulldogs this season, I just can't pick against Katy until they lose a game.  Katy TIGERS win 24-18!!!

      Well as for Smashing Katy … they scored how many points…. Oh yea not enough to advance to the next level. I had to listen to it on the internet and it sounded like the game of the year defensively for both teams. Both teams came in with massive amounts scored and very few scored against. Good job DAWGS

    I was wondering how long it would be before we heard from the Bulldog fans. What a great game that was. A defensive classic. Next Week….the Bulldogs take on Port Arthur Memorial again. It is very difficult to defeat a good team twice in the same year. Next week I am picking Por…..sorry I mean La Port to Win!!

    Honestly neither of these two teams will have a chance against winner of Cibole or Reagan if they do not play with some resemblence of a balance that includes a passing game. Awesome defense for La Porte.

What are your thoughts?
