The players that needed to win a do-or-die game, against a team they had never beaten, to get into the playoffs for the first time since they stepped onto campus were loose and relaxed.
No pressure, the Seven Lakes Spartans assured.
Then, they went out and proved it.
Seven Lakes dismissed Cinco Ranch 40-10 on Friday night at Legacy Stadium in a win-or-go-home game for both teams in each’s regular season finale. The Cougars struck first a little more than halfway through the first quarter, but the Spartans rolled thereafter, using a hard-hitting, playmaking defense and big-play offense to secure their first playoff berth since 2014 and Jimmy Hamon’s first postseason as a head coach in his initial year at the helm.
