Another matchup of unbeatens, as 4-0 Katy takes on 5-0 Katy Tompkins, in front of a big crowd at Legacy Stadium.
Katy strikes first, Ron Hoff takes the pitch and powers his way across the goalline for the 3 yard touchdown, Tigers up 7-0.
Tompkins answers on the ground. RJ Smith gets the carry, sees a hole, and then how about the spin move to break free into the open field, Smith rumbles 39 yards deep into Katy territory.
Moments later, Smith takes the handoff around the left side behind a wall of blockers, he finds the end zone, 13 yard touchdown run and that ties it up at 7.
Just before the half, Katy’s Ron Hoff bounces out of a couple of tackles and barrels his way into the end zone, he rushes for 173 yards and 2 scores on the night. Tigers lead 14-10 at intermission.
It’s 21-10 in the third, Tompkins punting and Jordan Patrick fields it at his own 43, he has a seam right up the middle of the field, one man to beat and he makes him miss, it’s a 57 yard punt return for a touchdown, Katy leads 28-10.
Still in the third, Mclelland with the play-fake to Hoff, he rolls right and airs it out downfield for a wide open Jordan Patrick. Mclelland hits him in stride and Patrick can walk into the end zone, it’s a 65-yard touchdown pass and it’s 35-10 Katy.
Tompkins not going away though. Milroe launches it deep for Gabe Atkins, and check out the job by Atkins to go up for the catch and keep his feet. It’s a 74 yard touchdown pass and the Falcons have life, trailing 35-17.
Then Tompkins digs deep into the playbook, it’s a reverse flea-flicker! Milroe gets it back and lets it fly for Garrett Mack. It’s a 35-yard touchdown, and the Falcons draw closer, 35-24.
But Katy’s defense comes up with the big play it needs late. Dalton Johnson picks off the pass for the game-sealing interception, and Katy hangs on to remain undefeated with a 35-30 win over Katy Tompkins.
