Cy-Fair High School band members celebrate a Bobcat touchdown during week two action at FCU Stadium, Sept. 8, 2018. The Cy-Fair Bobcats made a strong statement in their state title defense pre-district game with Cy-Park in the FCU Stadium at the Berry Center. The final score was 47-0 in favor of the Bobcats, with only the first half being played due to inclement weather in the area. (Cypress News Review photo by Creighton Holub)
