I break it down below by round.
New Braunsfels over Arlington Martin 42-30. Martin had 3 of their super stars with Dominic Chavez, Donavan Whitted, and Jaden Two Lance. several other starters where out with the Flu that’s been going around.

With each Katy, Weatherford, and New Braunfels each having 1 loss with Weatherford beating Katy, Katy beating New Braunfels, and New Braunfels beating Weatherford it would come down to the last duals and criteria. New Braunfels had a Bye so all Weatherford and Katy had to do was win to go into criteria with New Braunfels. Well Katy did its part winning over Arlington Martin 42-16. The Chavez and Jackson Crandall was a great match going to Chavez. But Plano West had other intentions then letting Weatherford win. Plano West defeats Weatherford 53-24 to give Weatherford their 2nd loss and tie them with Plano West at 2-2. Plano West with the tie breaking win gets 3rd place. Notable here was the Tagen Jamison vs Mason Woodward match up. It was close the 1st period and 2nd period and in the 3rd period Jamison opened it up and took Woodward down a couple time in a row but couldn’t quite get the major.
Katy wins over New Braunfels by criteria of most points.
