CYPRESS — From seven come five.

Cypress high school football teams accounted for seven of the possible eight playoff berths from Districts 14-6A and 17-6A. From those seven, five survived the first round of the playoffs and took home bi-district championships.

Starting this Black Friday and continuing on Small Business Saturday, those five teams will go against some of the toughest football teams in Texas.

— Friday, Nov. 23, 2018 —

• It all starts with the 17-6A champion Jersey Village visiting perennial powerhouse Katy Tigers this Friday at 1 p.m. in Katy ISD’s Legacy Stadium (1830 Katyland Dr.). — That’s the newer of the two stadiums built right next to each other. — No. 20 Jersey Village decimated Chavez, 56-12, while the No. 4 Katy Tigers blew away Fort Bend Travis, 52-7.

• Then playoff action bounces across the parking lot to Katy ISD’s Rhodes Stadium (1733 Katyland Dr.) as reigning state champ Cy-Fair battles Fort Bend Ridge Point with kickoff set for 3 p.m. The Bobcats doubled Lamar, 42-21, as Ridge Point squeaked by Katy Seven Lakes, 14-10.

• Following that, Cy Creek pulls a hat trick as the third Cypress team to play in Katy on Black Friday. The Cougars line up against the Katy Taylor Mustangs for an area title bout at Legacy Stadium with kickoff slated for 7 p.m. The Cougars took care of business and Houston Heights, 34-7, while Taylor defeated Fort Bend Dulles, 28-13.

— Saturday, Nov. 24, 2018 —

• On Small Business Saturday, Cy Falls takes the field first as they battle Katy Tompkins at Ken Pridgeon Stadium at 1 p.m. The Golden Eagles made a strong showing with a 40-14 decision over Westside. Tompkins overcame Fort Bend Elkins, 35-20.

• Then District 14-6A champion Cy Ranch goes against Spring Westfield at Thorne Stadium (1865 Aldine Bender Rd, Houston, TX 77032) at 2 p.m. for an area championship. The No. 8 Mustangs overcame Pflugerville Hendrickson, 24-10, and Westfield defeated Klein, 10-6.

Districts 14-6A and 17-6A saw Langham Creek’s comeback season end with a 21-15 loss to Cedar Ridge; and Cy Woods fell to Round Rock, 56-49; and Tomball Memorial knocked from the playoffs by No. 14 Vandegrift, 35-14.
