As every Class 5A district in the area got into district play last week, the teams expected to lead those leagues solidified their positions in the Legacy Sports Network/quadrust.com Houston 5A Football Top 20.
After five weeks of play, eight undefeated teams remain in the area and all of those found their ways into the top ten in this week’s rankings, as well as the top of district standings.
The top three teams in the area—North Shore, Katy and Westfield—remained in their positions after convincing wins. Katy and Westfield each defeated teams that were among last week’s top 20.
Cypress Falls saw the return of quarterback Cameron Henkhaus from an injury and jumped a spot to No. 4 after a 60-33 win over the Jersey Village Falcons.
Undefeated Port Arthur Memorial, Clear Creek and Lamar each moved up two spots in the top ten with wins in their district openers.
The Bush Broncos, out of Fort Bend ISD and District 23-5A, made the biggest jump of the week, moving from No. 17 up to No. 10.
The Broncos continue to display a dominating defense through their first four games. They’ve allowed just 14 total points and 334 combined yards to their four opponents—an average of 3.5 points and 83.5 yards per game.
Three previously-undefeated teams lost for the first time and dropped in the rankings because of it.
Dekaney (3-1) surrendered a 16-point lead in the final quarter of their game against Klein Forest (1-3) and lost 31-30 on a late field goal. The Wildcats fell from No. 4 to No. 16 after allowing the Golden Eagles their first win of the season.
Morton Ranch (3-1) and Atascocita (3-1) also lost for the first time and fell in the rankings, but their drops were smaller due to the fact that both teams’ opponents were among the top three teams in the area. Morton Ranch fell to Katy and Atascocita lost to Westfield.
