Strake Jesuit outlasted Eisenhower on Thursday night, 37-30, a score much closer than last year's matchup between these two teams (34-3, Jesuit victory).
When it seemed like the Crusaders had already run away with the game, the Eagles were quick enough to force a late comeback in the fourth quarter, cutting the score deficit down to seven. Nonetheless, Strake Jesuit's defense would go on to prove their dominance over Eisenhower and come out victorious.
Strake Jesuit quarterback William Dickason led the Crusaders' offense to two touchdowns in what seemed to be a slow first half between both teams. Midway through the first quarter, an interception by Jesuit outside linebacker Josh Cashiola set up the offense in scoring position. Dickason later was able to find the endzone on a quarterback scramble.

Pearland stubbed its toe in the first round of the postseason to Dickinson, while Strake Jesuit seems to be throwing their hat in the ring as a city power. Hastings still has some fire -power under David Martel, while Dawson will be young. The top four spots could be a toss-up, but one thing is for sure — the scoreboards will be lit up with some high-powered offenses.
