Cy Ranch Blows By Atascocita; Will Face 17-6A Foe in Regional Final

Cy Ranch vs Atascocita will be battle for trip to Austin

It’s been a special year for Cy-Fair ISD, and this weekend’s action was a great example of that. Cypress Ranch and Cy-Fair erased 1-0 series deficits against Atascocita and Clear Springs, so they'll renew a district rivalry in next week’s 6A Region III final.

"That just goes to show about the quality of baseball in our league," said Cypress Ranch head coach Corey Cephus. "That's a testament to everybody in our community. The Cy-Fair community is about baseball and getting it done."

Ranch jumped out to an early lead on Saturday and never looked back. It scored all six of its first inning runs with two outs, and ultimately prevailed 9-4. VYPE Player of the Game Westley Schields drove in two runs in the opening frame, so he was the difference maker in the series clincher.

"I was just trying to get good pitches to hit, put 'em in play [and] hit 'em hard," said Schields. "I knew our guy, JJ Goss, was going to be a dog on the mound, and we just came out and played our game."

Atascocita’s pitching was not on point, so runs came easy for the Mustangs. It started in the first when Colton Cowser and Jared Alvarez-Lopez walked with two outs, and Colton Owen was hit by a pitch to load the bases. The productive at-bats continued, when Matt Thompson drove in the first run with a RBI walk. Passed balls drove in the next two runs, Fabian Mayfield added a RBI walk, and Schields concluded the frame with a two-run RBI single.

17-6A’s second seed extended its lead in the second, third and fifth. Brandon Griffin drove in a pair and Mayfield had a solo home run.

Atascocita answered in the third and fifth, but its rally was too late. The Eagles drove home Macrae Kendrick and Bryce Klosterboer twice to cut into the lead.

In Cy-Fair's game, there was also a fast start. The Bobcats scored four of their runs in the first inning and prevailed 5-3 against Clear Springs. This will be the school's second all-Cy-Fair ISD regional final appearance of the school year. The other was last December's 31-14 football win against Langham Creek.

The state volleyball playoffs start tonight as area powers prepare for bracket play with hopes of reaching the finals in Garland, Texas.

So, as we are known to do, VYPE is going to boil it down for the fans.

Let's start in Class 6A Region II.

The Woodlands, Klein, Bridgeland and College Park are the Houston headliners coming out of this bracket, however, the 'Kats, Bears and Cavs will have to battle it out in the bottom half of the bracket.

Klein will likely play Bridgeland in Round 2, which could be an epic match-up.

In Class 6A Region III, it's all about Ridge Point and Pearland Dawson, but they would face each other in the Regional Semis. Cinco Ranch could be a spoiler on the top part of the bracket.

The bottom half of the bracket is wide open. Seven Lakes? Cy-Fair? Or Deer Park, maybe?
