West Orange-Stark Mustangs (Orange)
The Mustang defense hasn’t given up points yet this season. This is in no way a typo, or an exaggeration. The only points scored on West Orange-Stark have come from a safety in their most recent game against Silsbee. Most expected the Tigers to come in and score at least a touchdown against WOS, but there was nothing to be had as the Mustangs stifled Silsbee all night long.
Ridge Point Panthers (Missouri City)
Ridge Point only given up 18 points this year, and only 7 of those were meaningful. They gave up a touchdown to Kingwood in their season opener, but everything else has come in the 4th quarter with the game already decided. When you add in the fact that they haven’t scored under 30 yet this year, the Panthers are certainly a force to be reckoned with if they keep up this kind of production.
The Woodlands Highlanders (The Woodlands)
They gave up some points, and haven’t scored a shutout yet, but you better believe this Highlander defense is for real. They’ve shut down two very good teams in George Ranch and Katy, and if they can get their clamps on Lufkin this Friday, they’ll solidify their spot as one of, if not the, best defense in 6A.
Dickinson Gators (Dickinson)
Dickinson’s defense has been in some tough spots so far this year, but that hasn’t prevented them from coming through. The most they’ve given up so far has been 16 to a very good Friendswood offense, and most of those points came in a desperate 2nd half comeback attempt. They’ve shut down George Ranch, they’ve shut down Friendswood, and they’re set up to dominate in their district.
Cedar Park (Cedar Park)
Our #1 team in 5A has three shutouts to their name, and the most points they’ve given up was 20 to a potent Georgetown East View offense, with some of those coming in garbage time. Only giving up 33 points through 5 games is impressive for anyone, but the shutouts really put Cedar Park over the top.
