On the last day of the regular season, Katy (Texas) roll over Mayde Creek (Houston) by a final score of 58-0.

After losing two of their first three games, the Tigers have won seven games in a row heading into Friday’s playoff game against Fort Bend Travis (Richmond, Texas).

Many people expected Katy to right the ship because Katy has been a dominant program for a reason. The Tigers were coming off a season in which they equaled the state record with an eighth state championship and allowed a total of 62 points in going 16-0 with a top 5 finish in the Super 25.

In the seven consecutive wins to close the regular season, Katy has not allowed more than nine points in a game and has had a pair if shutouts.

Mayde Creek had a total of two plays in Tigers territory all game. Katy got on the board first with a safety thanks to Mayde Creek’s special teams snapping the ball over the punter’s head out of the back of the end zone. That was all the scoring the Tigers would need for the game.

Super sophomore Deondrick Glass rushed for a pedestrian — for him — 160 yards on 19 carries and four touchdowns, and, as usual, Glass and the rest of the starters didn’t finish the game. The Tigers were up comfortably 30-0 at the half.

Fort Bend Travis enters the game with Katy having won three of its last four and finished second in District 20-6A behind Ridge Point. Katy has looked dominant since its early season struggles.

The question is how much has Katy grown and gotten better since a loss to The Woodlands in late September and what that means as the Tigers begin the path in the postseason.
