    Default Maverick 7 on 7 SQT - May 26

    POOL A
    PEARLAND DAWSON
    CLEAR LAKE
    FORT BEND DULLES
    HOUSTON LAMAR

    POOL B
    TEXAS CITY
    WILLIS
    FRIENDSWOOD
    FORT BEND ELKINS

    POOL C
    MANVEL (Already Qualified for state)
    CLEAR SPRINGS
    CLEAR CREEK (Already Qualified for state)
    PEARLAND

    POOL D
    ALVIN
    LA MARQUE (Cannot advance….3A school)
    PASADENA MEMORIAL
    BAYTOWN LEE

    Clear Springs and Pearland catch a pretty big break. With Manvel and Clear Creek already qualified, neither can advance beyond pool play. So either Springs or Pearland could advance with only one win in pool play, then qualify for state with only one more win against the pool D winner.

    I'll go with:
    Dawson - but will be very tough with Lamar
    Texas City - some great sophomores / juniors-to-be
    Springs - even though Manvel will likely sweep pool C if they play their starters
    Alvin - La Marque also sweeping but not advancing

    TC over Dawson, Springs over Alvin.

    Springs over TC in the championship in a close one that really could go either way
    Dawson over Alvin in the consolation

    That's a great break for Springs. With Manvel, Creek and La Marque unable to advance, and Pearland moved to pool B, Srings has a walk in the park to state qualification. Lucky break for Springs!

    Well Springs still has to win & have better record to come out of pool play. Believe me, our boys are not going into this thinking it will be a cake walk at all.

    Oh I'm not doubting the mindset of the teams coming in. I'm just looking at the brackets and making an observation.

    One team from pools A and B will qualify, and one team from C and D will qualify. Of the eight teams in C and D, three either are already qualified or are not eligible. In pool C, Springs and Elkins could both loose to Manvel and Creek and still qualify by just beating the other team. A 1-2 record could be all it takes to advance to play the winner of pool D. Win that and they qualify.

    Of the five teams in C and D that are eligible to qualify, Springs is the best and is almost certain to make it. They would have a much tougher road to qualification if they were in pools A or B, or if the other teams in C and D were eligible to qualify this weekend.

    No offense to Spring, just stating a perspective.

    No problem... None taken at all. It will be a good day. My son & the boys that stayed the night are up & ready to go now.

    Creek beat the host in game 2 by 5. Lost to Elkins in game 1 beat springs in game 3.


    Manvel beat Elkins in game 3 but Elkins advanced due to Clear Creek and Manvel already in.

    Only other bracket I know is Pearland advanced.

    Some great competition yesterday! Lots of games decided in the final minute including the both semi-final games and the consolation game.

    Pool A: Lamar came out on top, beating Dawson by 4 points in the final pool game to avoid a 3-way tie with those two and Ft. Bend Dulles.

    Pool B: Pearland topped Texas City by 6 points in the final pool game win Pool B.

    Pool C: Manvel, Clear Creek and Ft Bend Elkins tie at 2-1, with Elkins the only one of them that could advance.

    Pool D: La Marque sweeps, but Alvin advances with a 2-1 record since La Marque is 7-on-7 DII. Alvin beat Baytown Lee by two points in the final pool game to advance.

    Two great semi-final games, with Lamar and Elkins scoring in the last minute to win their games over Pearland and Alvin.

    Lamar tops Elkins easily in the championship. Pearland comes from behind in the final minute to beat Alvin by 5 for 3rd place.
