The Katy Tigers fell short in their bid for a second consecutive state title, losing to Cedar Hill in a rematch of last year’s game 34-24. A win would have given Katy an eighth state championship. The Longhorns now have two.
Pearland also lost its title game, falling to Allen in the Class 5A Division I championship 63-28. Allen, which was ranked number one in the nation by the Associated Press, collects its third state title in the last six years.
The shutout for Houston-area teams was complete when Brenham lost the Class 4A Division II championship to Aledo 38-10.
All three games were played at AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys.
