After Cy Lakes, Jersey Village ends the season with Cy Creek and Cy Springs. The Falcons beat Cy Creek 5-3 and Cy Springs 11-8 earlier in the season. Garrett Gorka, Matthew Moore and Alex Lator all had two hits in last week's victory over Cy Falls.

Armando Gutierrez has proved to be a very good starter as he earned the win in last week's 6-0 victory over Cy Springs.
