After a tough loss to Porter the week prior, the Kingwood Park Panthers came back home at 1-2 to face a talented Crosby team hoping for an upset win.

However, Crosby running back Craig Williams made himself at home on K-Park’s homecoming, despite the best efforts of the Panthers offense.

In a 63-45 Crosby win, Williams scored seven touchdowns, many of them on long running plays, helping to break open what was a close game early on.

Early on, the Panthers came ready for a battle. They scored a field goal on their opening drive to take the lead, then after Williams’ first touchdown run, a four yard run, the Panthers hit a big 79 yard touchdown to Tylan Johnson for a 10-7 lead.

After that, Williams and Crosby went to work, going on a scoring blitz for the rest of the first half.

Williams scored two more rushing touchdowns, one of 73 yards, then scored right before halftime on a hook-and-ladder play that totaled 85 yards (Williams had 75 of those and the score) that gave Crosby a 35-17 halftime lead.

In the second half, both teams scored four more touchdowns; Williams scored three of them for Crosby. But Kingwood Park kept scoring as well to get their 45 points; their four second-half touchdowns included two by Immanuel McElroy.

 

ATASCOCITA

In 21-6A, the Atascocita Eagles convincingly dispatched another opponent; this past week they beat Channelview 62-7. The Eagles, now 3-1, have outscored opponents by a combined 125-14 the past two games.

 

SUMMER CREEK

The Bulldogs notched their second straight district win this past week, a 26-24 road win at Baytown Sterling. The Bulldogs are now 3-1.

This week, there are more great games throughout the area as Summer Creek meets C.E. King Friday night at Turner Stadium, Atascocita plays on the road at North Shore in a huge 21-6A showdown, and Humble, off a bye week, is at New Caney. Kingwood Park will have the week off.

I am proud to be this area’s Tribune Newspaper voice for Humble, Atascocita, Kingwood, Kingwood Park and Summer Creek High School athletics, a capacity I have served in since the fall of 2011. High school sports are something I have grown to love since I started in this position, watching young kids live out their dreams in competition throughout the area and throughout the state. My greatest thrill in this position was being on Floor Eight at NRG Stadium in December of 2016 when Atascocita High School qualified for the state football semifinals for the first time. Aside from reporting sports, I am a regular parishioner of St. Martha Catholic Church of Kingwood. I am also a two-time graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s College of Journalism and Mass Communications, and am a proud, but realistic, Nebraska Cornhuskers supporter. I do root for Houston’s local sports teams, but the Huskers are my team forever.
