TPI Hot Games of Week 3: Houston

Each week check out Texas Prep Insider for our Games of the Week feature highlighting a few of the big match ups in various regions of the state. This week in Houston, there are quite a few games that you will not want to miss.

Thursday, September 17
Hottest of the Hot: Houston Lamar vs. Katy Taylor
Two 2-0 teams face off in this Thursday night match up that will be a home game for Lamar. Should be a good one seeing that this is a repeat of last year's area round playoff battle, a game that Taylor won. Offenses both had adequate firepower and solid skilled players, which should make this one a 30-35-plus scoring, game for each team.

Key Players:
Houston Lamar: QB Bram Kohlhausen, RB Patrick Andrews, DB Drew Bostick
Katy Taylor: QB Lee Rodgers, WR Josh Thompson

Friday, September 18
Hottest of the Hot: Lamar Consolidated vs. Montgomery
It's good to get good 4A match ups like this one just before district play opens up. For the Mustangs, a 1-2 record is not a good indicator of where this team is, with the two losses coming at the hands of good 5A squads. With Montgomery, the Bears are hot right now and are undefeated. This match up has the ingredients to be a great on. Look for this one to be a high scoring game as well. Something like a 42-35 type outcome.

Key Players: 
Lamar Consolidated: RB Marcel Threat, WR Corey Thompson
Montgomery: QB Tyler Bolfing, RB Leroy Dobbins, WR Kyle Stovall

Other hot match ups:
Houston Eisenhower vs. Beaumont Westbrook
Cy Woods vs. Stratford
North Shore vs. LaMarque
Cy Creek vs. Oak Ridge

Saturday, September 19
Hottest of the Hot: Houston Madison vs. Alief Hastings
Though off to a good start with a 3-0 record, Madison has played it close with all opponents up to this point. Hastings on the other hand has not won a game as of yet, but has played rather stiff competition with Atascocita and strong 4A contender in Angleton. Either way, this should be a nice one, especially with good quarterback play on each side. Defense will decide this one. Scoring will be in the low 30s.

Key players:
Houston Madison: QB Terrence Smith, RB Chris Williams, WR Terrence Lee
Alief Hastings: QB Sam Carter, WR Lorenzo Sexton

Other hot match ups:
Spring Westfield vs. Houston Memorial
The Woodlands College Park vs. Nimitz
