Montgomery remained unbeaten in District 10-5A (Div. II) play with a 42-31 road victory over Lamar Consolidated Friday night.
The Bears (6-2, 4-0), who have won five consecutive games, now have a huge matchup against No. 4 state-ranked Huntsville (7-0, 4-0) at 7:30 p.m. next Friday at Montgomery ISD Stadium. The winner will clinch a share of the district title and the No. 1 seed for the playoffs.
Huntsville defeated Montgomery 42-0 two years ago in district play, but the teams did not meet on the field last season as the Bears forfeited that contest.
Montgomery leaned on its rushing attack against Lamar Consolidated, as Adavion Johnson and Jalen Washington combined for 340 yards. Johnson collected 183 yards and three touchdowns on 29 carries. Washington finished with 157 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries.
Brock Bolfing threw a touchdown to Triston Johnson, and Mason White had an interception on defense.
College Park tops Oak Ridge
College Park picked up a key 35-7 victory over Oak Ridge in District 13-6A play Friday night.
The win sets up a winner-take-all district championship game against rival The Woodlands (5-2, 4-0) at 7 p.m. next Friday at Woodforest Bank Stadium. The Highlanders have won 12 straight games in the series.
The Cavaliers (7-1, 4-0), ranked No. 20 in the Class 6A Houston Area Media Poll, got a standout game from receiver Holden Rook against Oak Ridge. He had just two catches, but finished with 129 yards and two touchdowns. Quarterback Hank Hudson completed 4 of 9 passes for 193 yards and two scores.
The College Park defense allowed 293 total yards and forced three turnovers.
Oak Ridge (5-3, 2-2) can clinch its first playoff berth since 2017 with a victory over Grand Oaks next week. That game will be played at 2 p.m. Friday at Woodforest Bank Stadium. The War Eagles could also clinch a playoff spot with a loss against the Grizzlies, as long as Willis also loses to Conroe.
Oak Ridge scored its lone touchdown against College Park with a 20-yard pass from Steve Smedley to Landon Lightsey in the first quarter. Smedley threw for 103 yards, and Lightsey had six catches for 71. Alton McCaskill rushed for 153 yards on 23 carries, and Sammy Keith had an interception on defense.
