Football: Kingwood preps for Oak Ridge in District 16-6A opener

After an 0-2 start, dropping games to Katy and Klein Collins, no one hit the panic button in Kingwood, but rather put their heads down and pushed forward.

The Mustangs (2-2) closed out non-district play rattling off a pair of come-from-behind victories against Friendswood, 35-34, and Eisenhower, 20-12, giving them momentum heading into District 16-6A play.

Kingwood opens district play against Oak Ridge (3-1), which has notched three-straight victories after a season-opening loss to Morton Ranch. click here for complete story
