GHA Overview Week 8

District standings and a look at the upcoming three weeks schedule.

“Target Wins” is the number of wins in district play would more than likely secure a playoff spot. One win over this would certainly guarantee a playoff spot. Depending on the district, it may require fewer wins but we will discuss specifics per district more as we get later in the season.

Still just some light analysis and notes this week. Next Week we’ll look at some “paths the playoffs” and then before Week 10 we’ll get into serious examination of scenarios.

Conroe Grand Oaks(3-4)(1-4)vs New Caneyat ClevelandOPEN
Conroe Caney Creek(1-5)(0-4)vs Willisat The Woodlandsvs Oak Ridge
Target Wins – 5

Hard to see a playoff path for Cleveland, Grand Oaks or New Caney. Conroe is open this week and will pretty much be in a must win position the remainder of the season.

Aldine(0-6)(0-3)at DeKaneyvs Nimitzvs Eisenhower
Target Wins – 4

Westfield is in control and Spring and DeKaney both have fairly obvious playoff paths. Eisenhower, Nimitz, Davis and MacArthur battling for the 4th spot.

Waller(0-6)(0-3)vs Kleinat Klein Oakat Klein Cainvs Tomball Memorial
Target Wins – 5

I would put Tomball Memorial, Klein and Klein Oak in must win scenarios this week. I think Waller is clearly 8th place.

Cypress Park(0-6)(0-3)at Cy Lakesvs Langham Creekat Cy Fallsvs Cy Woods
Target Wins – 4

Cy Ranch certainly looks to be the class of 16-6A. Big game this Saturday that I’ll be at as Cy Falls plays Cy Woods. The winner takes a big step forward to a playoff spot.

Cy Woods fate is directly in front of them as the play the three teams I think they are competing with for a playoff spot over the next three weeks.

Houston Spring Woods(0-6)(0-3)vs Stratfordat Cy Fairvs Cy Creek
Target Wins – 4

Cy-Fair is in charge in 17-6A. This week is pretty much just a confirmation week with the only game I expect to be anywhere near close being Jersey Village vs Cy Creek.

Katy Mayde Creek(2-5)(0-5)at Katy Taylorvs Tompkinsat Morton Ranch

Big turmoil in 19-6A this week at Paetow Head Coach Lonnie Paetow resigned.

Tompkins vs Morton Ranch is the big game this week. A Morton Ranch win would put Tompkins in a precarious position.

Ridge Point, George Ranch and Hightower appear likely playoff teams. Clements has a tough schedule over the next three weeks playing both Ridge Point and Hightower.

Target Wins – 5

Once again shaping up to be North Shore vs Atascocita for the district title. That game is week 10.

The game to keep an eye on this week is Summer Creek vs Kingwood. If Summer Creek comes off giving North Shore a scare last week and takes care of business, that would pretty much set the four playoff teams for 21-6A.
