The Bears (4-1) are on a three-game winning streak, including a 35-20 win over George Ranch last week. QB Javon Williams threw for 385 yards and three TDs in that one, and WR Edgerrin Melton had seven receptions for 191 yards and one TD. Strake is ...and more »
Strake Jesuit vs. Hastings, 7 p.m. Friday, Crump StadiumThe Crusaders are 5-0 for the first time since 2007, and they’re on pace to finish as the program’s most prolific group, averaging 48.2 points per game through the first half of the season. The 2015 team, that went 8-5 and reached the regional semifinals – before losing 75-14 to Manvel – averaged 32.6 points per outing. But they still have a lot of work left to do before thinking about making another deep playoff run. The Crusaders are in a three-way tie for first in 23-6A with Pearland and Hastings, who all are sitting at 2-0. The Bears (4-1) are on a three-game winning streak, including a 35-20 win over George Ranch last week. QB Javon Williams threw for 385 yards and three TDs in that one, and WR Edgerrin Melton had seven receptions for 191 yards and one TD. Strake is coming off a 41-21 win over Elsik powered by RB Michael Wiley (27-199, 4 TDs).
Cy-Fair vs. Jersey Village, 7 p.m. Friday, Pridgeon StadiumCy-Fair coach Ed Pustejovsky blamed turnovers and credited Cypress Falls’ performance for his team’s 14-7 setback last week, the Bobcats’ first loss in district in more than two years. But the Bobcats (4-1, 2-1) also may have fallen victim to a soft schedule that made them look like world beaters the previous three weeks but did little to prepare them for their first big District 17-6A test. That shouldn’t be a problem now, and it’s a good thing, too, because the Falcons (5-1, 4-0) are playing their best ball in years – and are well on their way to their first playoff appearance since 2006. The Falcons beat Memorial 56-27 for their fifth consecutive win last week, rallying from an early 17-14 deficit to win going away after a 28-point second quarter. QB Raymond Richardson exploded for 333 yards and 5 TDs on 22-of-30 passing, with WR Jordan Jones (10-205, 4 TDs receiving) the primary benefactor.

Port Arthur Memorial vs. New Caney, 7 p.m. Friday, Texan Drive StadiumUIL realignment removed the only teams to beat New Caney (4-1, 2-0) in district the last two years – Crosby in 2016 and Barbers Hill last season – but it also revised the Titans’ classification from 6A to 5A and dropped them into this strange new collective, giving the Eagles another fully capable challenger. Memorial is 5-0, 2-0 in 9-5A-I, after crushing Galena Park (35-7) and Goose Creek Memorial (51-2) in district. RB Brandon Chaney ran for 193 yards and three TDs against the Patriots, who managed only 48 total yards (minus-21 rushing). The Eagles are on a four-game winning streak since a season-opening loss to Crosby (28-14), including shutouts of Wisdom (48-0) and Galena Park (42-0) the last two weeks.
Foster vs. Friendswood, 7 p.m. Friday, Henry Winston StadiumMost folks figured the Falcons, who’ve taken flight under coach Shaun McDowell, would pick up where they left off last season, when they returned to the regional finals after making the state semis in 2016. But after committing six turnovers in a loss to Magnolia West, they were to 1-2, and all bets were off. Fast forward, and the Falcons (3-2) are 2-0 in District 10-5A-I and may have turned a corner, but the next three weeks will tell the tale, starting with the Mustangs this week. Friendswood (5-0, 2-0), back in 5A after a short 6A stint, is a formidable foe in any class, as it’s proving again this season. The Mustangs are coming off district wins over Texas City (34-14) and Ball (35-7).
Ridge Point vs. Bush, 1 p.m. Saturday, Mercer StadiumIt’s time to find out how serious the Broncos (5-0, 2-0) really are about winning a district championship. They’ve handled all comers so far, and broke out offensively in last week’s 63-39 shootout with Kempner – they scored 35 points in the first quarter – but the four-time defending district champion Panthers (4-1, 2-0) live at another level. They’ve allowed only two scores in the last three weeks, following that 44-0 thumping North Shore dealt them. Bush came close to unseating Ridge Point in last season’s 21-17 setback at Hall. The Broncos led 17-14 at halftime, but Ridge Point LB/RB Chad Bailey’s 51-yard TD run in the third was the only score in the second half.
