The Cy Ranch Mustangs clinched their fifth consecutive playoff appearance and their sixth in the last seven years with Saturday’s 45-21 victory over the Cy Woods Wildcats.

But this wasn’t all Cy Ranch. The Wildcats scored first on a 10-play, 80-yard drive capped by an 11-yard pass from Carson Danner to Jake Tesch to take the early lead, 7-0.

The Mustangs quickly tied to game on their first play from scrimmage on reverse pass as receiver Justin Carmouche hit Edwin Smith for a 62-yard touchdown.


The Wildcats continued the theme of early offense with a 9-play 88-yard drive resulting in a 6-yard Trayse Holmes touchdown run.

The Mustangs struck quickly again on their next drive. This time it took three plays and covered 75 yards with the score coming on a 61-yard pass from Logan McDougald to C.J. Hardy.

With 3:42 remaining in the first quarter, the score was tied at 14.

The Cy Ranch defense ended the next Wildcat drive with an interception by Morrow Urijah that gave the Mustangs the ball at the Wildcat 46.

And the Mustangs once again wasted no time in scoring, when Willie Eldridge capped a 2-play 46-yard drive with a 37-yard touchdown run to give the Mustangs their first lead 21-14 with 0:49 remaining in the 1st quarter.

And the Mustangs never looked back from there. Eldridge added another touchdown on a 67-yard run and Michael Gonzalez added a 38-yard field goal in the 2nd quarter to make the score Cy Ranch 31, Cy Woods 14 at the half.

The second half produced punts or turnovers on first four drives before finished an 11-play 72-yard drive with a 36-yard touchdown strike from Logan McDougald to C.J. Hardy early in the 4th quarter.

Both team adding another touchdown (Cy Woods on a 19-yard pass from Carson Danner to Jake Tesch and Cy Ranch on a 30-yard run from D.J. Ciers) to produce the final score of 45-21.

Cy Ranch had 569 yards total offense (310 rushing, 259 passing) to Cy Woods’ 409 yard total offense (183 rushing, 226 passing).

Cy Ranch moves to 8-0 overall and 6-0 in district play. The Mustangs travel to Bryan (4-4, 3-3) next Friday before wrapping up the season Thursday, 11/8 against Tomball Memorial (7-1, 5-1) at Cy Fair FCU Stadium.

Cy Woods falls to 6-3 overall and 5-2 in district play. The Wildcats are on a bye next week before wrapping up the season Thursday, 11/8 against Bryan (4-4, 3-3) at Pridgeon Stadium.

Simply put I am a fan of Texas high school football. I attend as many high school football games as I can - 82 games in 2017, 86 games in 2018, 76 games in 2019. I also have some limited computer skills and I use those to provide information to the #txhsfb community. I am always looking for new ways to provide information to the #txhsfb community.
