HOUSTON—The Katy Tigers are who we thought they were and they imposed their will against Cypress Ranch in a 55-7 blowout of the Mustangs at NRG Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The first quarter was full of stiff, hardnose play from Cy-Ranch. The Mustangs managed to hold the Tigers to two scores in the first quarter—a touchdown followed by a field goal—while scoring their own seven points.
The Mustangs struggled and were held to all but 118 yards total on offense with just three yards rushing, whereas the Tigers boasted 457 yards on offense. Katy scored six unanswered touchdowns after the first quarter, four alone in the second quarter of play thanks to strong efforts from by running back Deondrick Glass and quarterback Austin Marshall.
Marshall, a senior, splitting reps as usual at the shot caller position with freshman phenom Bronson McClelland. McClelland played well at quarterback, throwing a touchdown of his own on a 43-yard pass to receiver Jordan Patrick midway through the second quarter.
“The kids really stepped up and created some turnovers,” said Katy head coach Gary Joseph on his team’s performance Saturday afternoon. “They prepared well all week and I’m proud of them.”
Glass put on a show early, grinding his way to 181 yards on the day and two touchdowns to complement his performance.
Katy is slated to play against Atascocita next Friday at 7:30pm at NRG Stadium. “The biggest thing is we have to stop the quarterback,” Coach Joseph responded when asked about how his team has prepared for the Eagles and what they are focused on. “He can run the ball real well. We’ll have to sit down and plan accordingly/”
