Houston Duals comes down to 8th tie breaker

After cruising through pool matches, host Cy Woods provided the drama and excitement in the championship bracket – upending top seed Katy, 34-30 in the semifinals, then tying Klein 33-33 in the championship.  The home crowd sat anxiously for almost 20 minutes as the referees, coaches and scorekeepers painstakingly review the results, applying eight tie breaker criteria before declaring Klein the winner based on number matches in which they scored the first points.  Both teams, as well as third place finisher Katy and fourth place Cinco Ranch qualify for the State Dual Meet championships to be hosted by Klein High School on January 14th.

In the girls’ bracket, Cy Ranch defeated Langham Creek in the finals, with Mayde Creek topping Cy Woods in the thrid place match.  All four teams qualify for the State Duals being hosted by Cy Ridge.
