March 11, 2019

Six Katy ISD teams were assured of postseason berths entering spring break. Tompkins and Seven Lakes maintained the top two spots in the 19-6A boys standings, both punching their playoff ticket.

The Falcons remained unbeaten in district at 7-0-3 with a 6-2 victory against Katy. Jovan Prado scored twice, while Daniel Espinoza had a goal and four assists.

Jose Maria Ojeda, Harmon Jeffords and Harvey Jenkins all scored as Tompkins stayed ahead of Seven Lakes. The Falcons have two more opportunities for points, while the Spartans play once. Tompkins closes its regular season at Taylor (March 19) and at home against Mayde Creek (March 22).

Seven Lakes clinched a playoff spot with a 2-0 win March 5 against Katy as J.P. Dominguez and Nico Molina scored. Justin Ardis recorded the shutout in goal, while Santiago Brigone was voted “Man of the Match”.

Kevin Chen, Juan Hinestroza and Isaac Peterson all scored their first goals of season during a memorable senior night victory, 6-0 against Taylor as Seven Lakes improved to 7-2-2.

Mayde Creek earned a key 2-1 win against Taylor on March 5 to improve to 4-3-3, good for sole possession of third place in a close race for the last two playoff spots. The Rams previously defeated Katy 3-1 on a hat trick from Fawaz Ajiteru.

Mayde Creek, Morton Ranch, Taylor and Cinco Ranch were separated by five points in the standings going into the break.

The Mavericks (4-5-2), the only one of the four with one match remaining instead of two, gained a crucial 2-1 win against Cinco Ranch as Randy Dominguez scored the go-ahead goal.

The 19-6A girls playoff field is all set, though seeding is not final. Tompkins clinched the district title with a 4-1 win against Katy, as Haro scored twice. Skylar Parker and Barbara Olivieri both scored their 50th career goals.

The No. 1-ranked Falcons improved to 10-0-0 in league play with Taylor and Mayde Creek remaining on the schedule.

Seven Lakes, Cinco Ranch and Katy are all assured of playoff spots. The Spartans improved to 7-2-2 with shutouts of Katy and Taylor, all but locking up the No. 2 seed.

The Cougars hold the No. 3 spot at 5-3-2 after a 5-0 win against Morton Ranch on March 8. That spot could be decided March 19 in a rivalry match against Katy, which is only one point behind Cinco Ranch at 5-4-1.
