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.
