THE WOODLANDS – The Woodlands Highlanders face the Conroe Tigers looking to extend their undefeated district record to 4-0
Conroe has had a disappointing season as its record sits at a disappointing 1-5, but its coming off its first win. Last weeks win against College Park has given the Tigers momentum they will absolutely look to capitalize on.
Donaven Lloyd finally had the game he was expected to at the start of the season finishing with 253 yards and three touchdowns against College Park. He’s a strong runner who’ll cause problems for a tough Highlander defense. The Tigers defense held College Park to 10 points, but they’ve struggled against better teams like Oak Ridge and Montgomery. They face their toughest test of the season, and their chances of winning are slim, but in Texas High School Football, anything can happen.
The Woodlands have survived their toughest two week stretch of the season, ending the undefeated seasons of West Brook and Oak Ridge while seating themselves in the driver’s seat to win the division.
Still without starting quarterback Quinn Binney, Quinton Johnson will get the start for the third consecutive week. Kesean Carter and Connor Klapesky are his top two weapons, both will look to build on their standout seasons.
The Woodlands probably don’t expect the starters to play the whole game, and are preparing the backups and third-strings for meaningful playing time. Defensively, Jackson Shearer and the Highlander defense will look to shut down the top rated running back in the district, Donaven Lloyd.
The Woodlands are trialed and tested, making their chances of winning Friday’s matchup are high. However, Conroe is a feisty team, if The Woodlands sleep on, could cause problems for a Highlander team solely resting on top of the district.
