SAN ANTONIO — Lake Travis’ Cavaliers endured torrential downpour and one of the fiercest pass rushes in prep football to pave the road to seven — and history — when a high school football playoff game predicted to be determined by the weather took an unexpected turn Saturday at Alamo Stadium.
And while the high-flying Lake Travis offense was expected to take a back seat to the nationally-ranked Katy Tiger defense and strong running game, instead Lake Travis flipped the odds and took home a 28-14 victory on a wet, cold afternoon in San Antonio.

The Cavaliers will face No. 3 Allen in the state championship, as the Eagles defeated Cedar Ridge on Saturday night. Lake Travis will look to repeat last season’s 41-6 state championship trouncing of The Woodlands and capture its seventh title in 10 years at 3 p.m. next Saturday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.
Lake Travis won five consecutive UIL Class 4A state titles between 2007 and 2011.
