The Tomball Cougars are playoff bound. Almost.
The Cougars are on the very edge of the playoffs, needing either a win in their season finale or a loss by one of two district rivals to lock up the playoffs.
The Coogs topped District 13-5A rival Klein 23-10 Friday night, dominating on offense and capitalizing on a hard-hitting defense.
Senior quarterback Justin Dvorak completed five of seven passes, keeping the ball on the ground for most of the game. Dvorak added 81 yards and a touchdown running the ball.
The playmaker was Brandon Green, who carried the ball 13 times for 176 yards and two touchdowns for the Cougars. Tomball’s rushers averaged more than seven yards per carry, while Klein averaged less than three yards.
The Cougars, 7-2 and 4-2 in district, have one game remaining in the regular season, a road game Thursday night against Klein Forest.
For the first time in several seasons, the games likely won’t end with the regular season.
