TPI District 18-5A: Week Five Preview (FREE)

It's Week 5 and district play is in full swing. Katy plays Katy Taylor, Alief Elsik will take on Katy Morton Ranch, Katy Cinco Ranch will battle Alief Taylor, and Katy Mayde Creek will play Alief Hastings. TPI will break down each of these match ups.

Katy vs. Katy Taylor: Katy's defense pitched another shutout last week and now the Tigers go head-to-head with Taylor. I look for Katy QB Bo Mitchell to have a big game and test the Mustang secondary quite a bit. This, along with Trent Hunter or Aundre Dean in the backfield means another ‘W' for the Tigers. Katy by 28.

Alief Elsik vs. Katy Morton Ranch: After Elsik RB Jeremy Hills' performance last week, expect nothing less in this match up. Morton Ranch is a team with plenty of fight, but I think the Mavericks will just be overmatched in this. Alief Elsik by 14.

Katy Cinco Ranch vs. Alief Taylor: Katy shut out Alief Taylor last week, but I see the Lions bouncing back in this one. Donte Elliott is dangerous in the shotgun and I see him making plenty of plays. On the other side, Cougar RB Jeff Oliver has proven to be a solid workhorse. This game will be decided by defense and I think it will be Taylor. Alief Taylor by 7.

Katy Mayde Creek vs. Alief Hastings: Mayde Creek inched by Katy Taylor last week and will face a tough Hastings squad. There will be some good offensive moments in this game, but I do not predict a high score. I see this game being dominated by tough defenses and the Rams have the edge. Mayde Creek by 3.
