CYPRESS — The scoreboard at Cy-Fair FCU Stadium was deafening silent Thursday night, as it read 59-20 at the conclusion of the Cy Park Tigers’ solid victory over the visiting Rosenberg Lamar Mustangs.
The win puts the Tigers at 3-0 in the pre-district finale of the 2021 season.
Next week’s league battle will be the first of the games that count as Cy Springs hosts Cy Park at FCU Stadium for a 7 p.m. shootout, Friday, Sept. 17.
“Like we just told the kids: We have to continue to get better each week,” said Head Coach Greg Rogers, after the Tigers’ third straight win this season. “The non-district games are over, and (now) every game counts to our goals of making the playoffs, winning a district championship and trying to make a playoff run.”
Cy Park’s three wins 68-14 over Cy Ridge, 62-28 over perennial powerhouse Cy-Fair, and now 59-20 over Rosenberg Lamar, have set a big target on the Tigers’ backs going into league play this week. But Rogers knows to keep his team focused on the task at hand, one play at a time.
“The biggest thing is … the snap to whistle effort that we ask of all our kids,” Rogers added. “We preach a 1-0 mentality and a big piece of that is relentless effort. Our kids are really exemplifying that every single play – they’re playing hard and they’re flying around all over the place – so i couldn’t be more proud of them. We’re pretty blessed with some great kids and then they work extremely hard and they’re coming together as a team and playing for each other.”
