CYPRESS — It may have not been an upset in everyone’s eyes, but the Cy-Falls Eagles’ 14-7 victory over reigning state champion Cy-Fair tonight (Oct. 4, 2018) will definitely upset the power rankings across the state.

The Bobcats entered the game ranked as high as No. 4 in Class 6A Texas high school football.

The decision snapped Cy-Fair’s 19-game win streak, broke the Bobcats’ three consecutive shutout streak, and cemented the district crown to the Eagles — unless another District 17-6A team plays spoiler. In fact, the Bobcats would need two spoiler teams to take the crown outright.

The Eagles got on the board first with a 12-yard touchdown pass from T.J. Goodwin to Jyrese Hanchett with 8:21 in the second quarter.

It took the Bobcats a whole period to respond, and it was Ryan Nelub dialing his own number on a 1-yard touchdown run. The extra point was true, 7-6, with just 11 seconds left on the third quarter clock.

The last word would come from Goodwin matching Nelub on quarterback-keepers-for-touchdowns with a 1-yard run. Cy-Falls converted the two-point-conversion, 14-7, with 4:04 remaining in the contest.
