For the first ten minutes of Friday's Homecoming game against Seven Lakes, unbeaten Katy found itself in unfamiliar territory, trailing for the first time in a game this season, 7-5, to the undefeated Spartans.
But the feeling soon passed, and the Tigers began to get on track late in the quarter, scoring four touchdowns on their next four possessions of the first half which led to a 46-7 win over Seven Lakes in the opening week of Dist. 19-5A play.
Katy (4-0, 1-0) got a balanced attack on offense from a variety of players. Junior Kyle Fulks, a starter at defensive back, showed that he can get it done on offense as well, hauling in his first two pass receptions of the year for two touchdowns.
Running backs Rodney Anderson and Ricky Bickham combined for 280 yards on the ground as the Tigers scored three rushing touchdowns and quarterback Brooks Haack was eight-for-15 for 106 yards, three touchdowns, and no interceptions.
The game started somewhat sluggishly as Anderson lost a fumble on Katy's opening drive as he was about to score on a 17-yard run. Seven Lakes recovered the ball at the two, but Katy took a 2-0 lead when Spartan's quarterback Kaleb Morton fumbled in the end zone three plays later.
But the Tigers gave the ball away on the ensuing free kick when Ivan Garcia mishandled the kick, with the ball being recovered by Seven Lakes (3-1, 0-1) at the Katy 33.
Running back Denzel Guillard, who rushed for 133 yards on 18 carries in the game, scored on the first play on a run across the left side to give Seven Lakes a 7-2 lead.
After a 38-yard field goal by Jeff Johnson with 5:42 to go in the first, Fulks finally gave the designated home crowd something to cheer about when he scored on a 50-yard bomb from Haack down the left sideline to make the score 11-7, a lead that the Tigers would not relinquish.
Seven Lakes would go on to gain just 60 total yards in the first half and Katy poured on the gas with another three scores in the second quarter.
Anderson, who continues to shine in the backfield as a freshman, scored on a five-yard run to cap a six-play, 38-yard drive. Haack then hit Jordan Thompson on a 20-yard scoring pass with 4:32 left and Fulks completed the first half scoring for Katy with just 12 seconds to go when he pulled in a 16-yard pass from Haack to up the lead to 32-7.
In the third period, Katy scored twice more with Haack taking it in from the one on a quarterback sneak and reserve signal-caller Michael Whatley scoring on an eight-yard run with 1:30 remaining.
Anderson ended the game with 168 yards on 17 carries while Bickham, who had just 10 yards in the first half, came up big in the second half with 102 yards, including a 62-yard burst to set up the touchdown by Whatley. Haack's touchdown was also set up on a 62-yard run by Anderson to the Seven Lakes five.
The Spartans ended the game with 261 yards in total offense. Morton passed for 45 yards while backup Jon Duplantier was seven-for-ten for 62 yards. Both quarterbacks had an interception (Quinn Atwood, Drake Dowling).
Katy will next play Strake Jesuit on Friday at Rice Stadium. The Crusaders (2-2, 1-0) defeated Taylor 35-14 Friday night. Seven Lakes will take on Cinco Ranch (3-1, 1-0) on Thursday at Rhodes Stadium.
