HOUSTON — The last two remaining Cypress football teams in the playoffs will play for a Region 3 championship at NRG Stadium Saturday, Dec. 8, 2018.

Years ago, the UIL instituted a split state championship system for football, and the two District 17-6A teams will not meet again this season as Cy-Fair went into the Division I brackets and Cy Creek entered the Division II brackets. So there is still a chance that our town could walk into Christmas break with two state championships!

The Cy Creek Cougars punched their ticket yesterday with a solid 43-14 victory over Summer Creek. However, the reigning state champion Cy-Fair Bobcats had a nail biter with a 41-38 win over Atascocita.

The Bobcats will face off with North Shore, who just dealt the Katy Tigers a loss for the second time this season — this time a 49-38 decision sending the Tigers out of the playoffs.

The Cougars will battle Beaumont West Brook. Beaumont dealt a 49-45 topsy-turvey game to Katy Tompkins on Dec. 1.

With a Cypress-headlined doubleheader in the works at NRG Stadium, the Cy Creek vs. Beaumont West Brook game is slated for 2 p.m. and the Cy-Fair vs. North Shore game has a 6 p.m. kickoff.
