It was a relatively light weekend of games with several districts having bye weeks.
On the Class 6A slate, the biggest win was Bridgeland 48-14 smashing of Cypress Ranch to take the pole position in District 14-6A. Are the Bears for real? How about Stratford knocking off Cypress Ridge. A signature win for Spartan coach Todd Rankin.
Another interesting win was Klein Cain's 52-42 shocker over Klein.
All eyes were on Fort Bend on Friday as Marshall hosted Manvel. The Mavs held off VYPE's No. 1 team in Class 5A in an instant classic.

San Antonio Roosevelt (4-0, 1-0) has been a great San Antonio area surprise in 2019, and continued its winning ways with a come-from-behind 27-16 win against North East ISD foe San Antonio MacArthur (1-3, 0-1) at Jerry Comalander Stadium on Friday.
The Rough Riders faced seven-point deficits in both the first and second quarters because MacArthur's Charles Collins recorded early touchdowns and the Brahmas blocked Roosevelt's first PAT, but three straight VYPE Player of the Game Rashod Owens touchdowns helped them bounce back.
"It was real big," said Owens. "I can't thank nothing but my teammates for pushing me every day, and we worked hard for that win."
VYPE Player of the Game Rashod Owens scored 3 TDs in San Antonio Roosevelt's (4-0, 1-0) 27-16 win against San Antonio MacArthur(1-3,0-1).Stay tuned for recap on VYPE site tonight. @NEISD @NeisdAthletics @WeAreTRHS @TRsportsbooster @TRRoughRiderFB @luxury_owens12 #txhsfb #VYPESATX pic.twitter.com/J8dORU9dFI

Roosevelt also got a break in MacArthur's missed PAT in the second quarter, and used a Robert Meadows fourth quarter score to wrap up a 14-3 second half edge.
The Rough Riders may have missed the last six UIL postseasons, but are the only 4-0 27-6A team in 2019. They're definitely confident for a tough stretch that includes San Antonio Madison, South San, San Antonio Reagan and San Antonio Johnson the next four games, but translating that to success against programs of that magnitude will ultimately decide if they're a UIL 6A playoff contender or the UIL 27-6A district favorite.
"Take one step at a time and practice hard every day," Owens said of the approach the rest of the season.

Sitting behind a table, Eddie Lampkin got emotional.
In front of him were five bags. Each with a school the four-star recruit was considering as his next stop after his playing days at Morton Ranch High School are over. On the bags were TCU, Texas A&M, Arkansas, Seton Hall and WKU logos.
While wiping tears away from his eyes, Lampkin unzipped his black jacket to reveal a TCU t-shirt, while his parents pulled off their sweaters and jackets to reveal the same. Lampkin pulled on a purple TCU hat and threw up the hand signal for the Horned Frogs, officially pledging his talents to TCU.
"When my brother and I started out, everybody doubted us," Lampkin said while wiping tears away. "We just wanted to show them that we could do it."
Lampkin's teammate LJ Cryer verballed to Baylor University earlier this summer, making Morton Ranch one of the most talent-rich boys basketball teams in Houston heading into the 2019 season.
