At the ready

Foster moved down to No. 5 in the Dave Campbell’s Texas Football magazine and TexasFootball.com’s high school rankings after beating Hightower on Saturday. 

Saturday’s game between Foster and Hightower at Mercer Stadium had a playoff intensity and atmosphere amid a pandemic.

The Falcons were able to orchestrate a late drive to pull out the 35-34 victory late.

The most recent Texasfootball.com-Associated Press poll did not feel that win was up to snuff in light of Cedar Park’s 82-0 win over Austin Anderson.

The Timberwolves moved up to No. 4 while Foster dropped to No. 5 in the Week 10 poll.

The Cedar Park-Foster switch was the only change in the Class 5A-DI poll from Week 9.

Among the other Fort Bend County teams, Katy Tompkins stayed at No. 14 in the 6A poll with a 28-0 shutout of Katy Taylor.

Fort Bend Marshall remained at No. 4 in the 5A-DII poll with a 68-0 victory over Houston Waltrip.

In the 3A-DII poll, East Bernard stayed at No. 5 with a 44-14 win over Tidehaven last week.
