Galveston Ball and Clear Creek are both among the top 20 Houston area teams in the latest Vype.com poll.
The first-place Tornadoes, who are ranked 14th, are 5-1 in UIL district 23-5A after defeating Fort Bend Marshall last Thursday. Galveston will take on Fort Bend Bush on Friday and will play Santa Fe on Saturday afternoon.
The Wildcats, ranked 17th, are tied with Friendswood with a 6-1 record in district 24-6A. Creek routed rival Clear Lake last Thursday to close out the first leg of district play and were due to resume action against Clear Brook on Tuesday, after The Post went to press.
Also in action on Tuesday evening, Clear Springs played their UIL class 6A, region III quarterfinal against Fort Bend Clements at Pearland. The Chargers entered the match with a 17-3-3 record, with playoff wins over Alief Elisk and Pearland Dawson, and had yet to allow a goal thus far in the postseason.
A Chargers win would place coach Craig Foster’s team against the winner of the Katy-Cinco Ranch match, which was also due to be played on Tuesday.
Two area teams are ranked among the top 20 in the Houston area in the latest Vype.com poll.
Santa Fe, which entered the week undefeated in UIL district 23-5A and sporting a 10-game win streak, is ranked ninth in the poll and is second only to Barbers Hill among the four 5A schools that made this week’s rankings.
The Indians are 13-3 overall and were due to resume district play after the Easter break with a game against Fort Bend Elkins on Tuesday, after which they will face Galveston Ball on Friday.
Clear Springs is ranked 14th this week, tied with Clear Creek for first place in district 24-6A. The Chargers, who are 6-2 in 24-6A and 16-6 overall, were hosting Clear Lake on Tuesday and will welcome Friendswood on Friday night.
