Pearland 41, College Park 20
College Park started the game with a solid first half, going into halftime with a 13-12 lead but Pearland turned on the jets in the second half. College Park was outscored in the second half, 29-7. The Cavalier’s defense allowed 396 yards, with a lot being through the air. College Park’s offense looked very one sided, with 192 of their 249 yards being on the ground.
Next Game: @ Eisenhower
Conroe 45, Nimitz 2
The Conroe Tigers finished last in District 16-6A a year ago and many people are predicting the same result this year. In their first game of the season, the Tigers were out to prove critics wrong racking up 450 yards of total offense. Conroe was unstoppable in the air and on the ground. The Tiger secondary looked strong, forcing the Nimitz QB, Demond Rose, to go 1-11 with just 13 yards. Conroe certainly got the start they needed if they want to have any chance at a playoff run.
Next Game: @ Bryan
Katy 46, Kingwood 0
Kingwood struggled on both sides of the ball against national powerhouse, Katy, in their season opener. The offense wasn’t able to move the ball very effectively, not to mention the Mustangs’ turn over problem. If there was 1 highlight of the Mustangs offense, it would be their depth at the running back position. Kingwood’s defense looked good to start the game but they can only carry the load so long before the offensive mistakes started hurting the defense. Let’s face it, there is no stopping Kyle Porter, who rushed for 116 yards on 15 carries. Sewo Olonilua had the only pick for the Mustangs.
Next Game: vs. Klein Collins
Morton Ranch 21, Oak Ridge 14
Many War Eagle fans have high hopes for their team this year, even despite the rocky start. Oak Ridge found themselves in a hole early on Saturday, a hole that Morton Ranch would not let them escape from. QB Brayden Letney established his main target in Kyle Townsend who had 1 TD and 106 yards on 6 receptions. Oak Ridge’s run-defense was poor but the War Eagles defended the pass almost perfectly, only allowing 2 yards in the passing game. In the end, it was Morton Ranch’s run game that hurt the War Eagles.
Next Game: vs. Aldine
Summer Creek 27, Pasadena Memorial 21
There’s no doubt that this game especially meant more to Pasadena Memorial than it did to Summer Creek. The Bulldogs defeated Pasadena Memorial 62-7 last year, an embarrassing loss for the Mavericks. Summer Creek looks to have improved on the defensive side of the ball after struggling last year. Giving up an average of 31 points per game, the Bulldogs looked as if they’ve addressed those problems. Summer Creek hung on late in the game, with a tough schedule down the road (district and non-district), this first game was a must win for the Bulldogs.
Next Week: @ Dickinson
The Woodlands 28, Cy-Fair 7
After being shut-out against Cy-Fair last year, The Woodlands made a statement in this game. The Highlanders showed everybody that they could put points up without last year’s star RB, Patrick Carr. The Woodlands were shutting out the Bobcats until a late TD took that away from the Highlander defense. The Woodlands also showed critics that they could still be a powerhouse in the city of Houston with a young QB.
Next Game: vs. Dekaney
