Tuesday’s Galveston County high school basketball action saw the Friendswood Lady Mustangs seize control of first place in District 22-5A, while the Clear Falls girls rallied to gain an inside track on the 24-6A playoff race. On the boys’ side, the Ball High Tors were left as District 22-5A’s only remaining undefeated.

Now, it’s time to march on and see what’s happening Friday.

FRIDAY’S GAME TO WATCH

• Clear Creek at Clear Springs girls: The Clear Creek Wildcats were dealt a tough set-back courtesy of Clear Falls’ come-from-behind win over them Tuesday, but they have a shot to disrupt the top of the District 24-6A standings to close the first half of district play Friday. With close losses to fellow playoff hopefuls Clear Falls and Clear Lake, the Wildcats should be fired up to try to record a signature win.

Since dropping its district opener by one point against Clear Falls, Clear Springs has won its last four 24-6A games by double digits (and by an average of more than 26 points), and the Chargers will look to keep rolling.

Jermia Green has been the Chargers’ leading scorer this season, and Lauren Sinclair will be among the players to watch for the Wildcats. Tip-off for the game is set for 7 p.m. Friday.
