HOUSTON - As the Class 4A State Championships finished up on Friday inside AT&T Stadium, the upper classes of UIL football took their next steps towards the ultimate goal.
The premiere game of the night came between Tompkins and Cy-Fair and the early and often theme to this was defense. The Falcons improved to 10-0 with the 51-28 dominating victory, which included three defensive touchdowns. Colby Huerter had a pair of scoop and scores, while Caleb Komolafe had a pick-six for Tompkins.
Alabama-signee Jalen Milroe had a big night, including a 55-yard touchdown run where he went virtually untouched to the end zone.

With the win, Katy Tompkins is into the Regional Semifinals for a third-straight season, the last two playoff runs being halted by Beaumont West Brook and Atascocita. This time around, the Falcons get defending Class 6A State Champion North Shore.
