Bobcats Bounce Langham
Cy-Fair reached second state semi in school history

Even though it was a low-scoring affair early, Cy-Fair was in control. The Bobcats didn’t score on every possession, but put offensive and defensive pressure on Langham. They handed the ball to Trenton Kennedy, so they could find the end zone on two of their first four drives, and lead 14-7 at halftime.
Their defense also stepped up. On the first three Lobo drives that followed a scoreless Bobcat possession, the unit allowed nine plays for 24 yards. Patrick Atkinson, Kyle Bell, and Cody Cunningham helped slow down the opposition with a team-high five tackles.
Max Duque made a key 34-yard field goal in the third quarter because Langham answered in the fourth. It started with a forced fumble, and Chris Mehn followed with his second rushing touchdown of the game.
Luckily for Fair, Kennedy overcame his turnover, and added the finishing touches of the program’s second-ever regional championship. In a late 46-second span, he ran for his third and fourth scores.
“He bounced back,” Pustejovsky said of Kennedy. “He responded very well.”
Pustejovsky was the offensive line coach when the Bobcats lost to Odessa Permian in the 1985 state semifinals, so he’s hoping for a better result next Saturday. He and his team will matchup with the Austin Westlake/Cibolo Steele winner at NRG Stadium.
