League leaders to meet at Berry Center
The top two teams in 17-5A boys soccer — league-leading Cy-Fair and second place Langham Creek - square off in a key district encounter on the big stage at the Berry Center, and the Lobos need a victory to keep alive any hopes overtaking the Bobcats.
It's also the only 17-5A meeting between the two in the district's split-zone schedule, and the winner could gain an important tiebreaker if things tighten up down the stretch.
The first place Cy-Fair girls face Langham Creek at 5 p.m. Friday, March 11, at the Berry Center prior to the boys contest.
