It was another heady week of gridiron competition for Galveston County squads.

Two lengthy losing streaks were halted, a big upset was registered and another team showed it is a force to be reckoned with.

On the down side, only five found it into the win column.

That can be tempered somewhat in that we had two inter-county matchups, but still ...

1. Texas City

Last week: 2

The Stingarees met La Marque in the annual Battle by the Bay and handed the Cougars a historic 56-35 loss to claim the top spot in our poll. Texas City is loaded with offensive weapons. You gotta see these guys.

2. Dickinson

Last week: unranked

The Gators trailed Friendswood 21-0 in the second quarter and could have curled up and waited for the final gun, but they didn’t, pulling off an epic 33-30 comeback win.

3. Santa Fe

Last week: 9

The Indians had not celebrated a win since 2011 before beating Brazosport 46-40. The offensive showcase come down to a big defensive play when Santa Fe forced Brazosport to fumble in the final minutes.

4. Clear Falls

Last week: 7

The Knights snapped an eight-game losing streak by throwing a 29-0 shutout at Baytown Sterling.

5. Clear Springs

Last week: 8

The Chargers move up three slots thanks to a convincing 37-20 win over Dobie, that saw the Clear Springs defense blank the Longhorns in the second half.

6. High Island

Last week: 6

The Cardinals were nipped at the wire by Alvin Living Stones 38-37.

7. Bay Area Christian

Last week: unranked

The Broncos had a chance to tie their game with McKinney Christian, but a two-point conversion attempt failed and they went down 28-26.

8. Friendswood

Last week: 4

The Mustangs had a good lead over Dickinson, but faltered near the end.

9. Clear Creek

Last week: 1

The Wildcats’ offense was strong, but its defense lagged late in a 34-21 loss to Kingwood.

10. La Marque

Last week: 3

The Cougars put 35 on the board, which should have been enough to win. Too bad they were playing Texas City.
