KATY Tigers - comeback for the win
After a disappointing season opener with a (35-21) loss to Northshore, the first home game loss for the Tigers in 10 years, the Tigers were full of fire looking to prove they are still the team to beat. The first half of the game had some Tigers worrying with Deondrick Glass scoring the only touchdown. After a long half-time delay due to lightning, the Tigers came back rejuvenated and ready to add a win to the team's season. Katy did just that with a final score of 31-28. The game included an impressive 5 turnovers during the game and total yards of 525.

SEVEN LAKES SPARTANS - planning was key
The Seven Lakes Spartans took on La Porte Friday night and secured their first win of the 2018 season.
