HOUSTON – Add Lake Travis to the list.

That list being the perennial power programs in Texas high school football – Katy, Cy-Fair and now Lake Travis – that North Shore has dispatched each of the last three weeks to get to the final game of the year.

Zach Evans rushed for 196 yards and four touchdowns, and Dematrius Davis passed for 231 yards and two scores, as North Shore defeated Lake Travis 51-10 in the Class 6A Division I state semifinal inside NRG Stadium on Saturday.

"It has been phenomenal programs, well-coached programs, very talented programs that are working every bit as hard as we are," North Shore coach Jon Kay said. "We knew whoever was coming out of this Region III was going to be two things – a pretty good football team and pretty beat up."

"Then, you get out of the Region III gauntlet, and you line up against somebody like Lake Travis, and then obviously whoever wins [between Allen and Duncanville]. That'll be another barn-burner [next week]."

North Shore improves to 15-0, matching the best record ever held by a Mustangs' football team, which was set in 2003.

"We're a special team, but we still haven't unlocked our full ability yet," Evans said. "That shows you what our program can do to players."

The Mustangs advance to the program's third-ever state championship game, joining the 2003 and 2015 teams. North Shore won the state championship both games.

"That's quite an accomplishment," Kay said. "I'm really proud of the program. I'm proud of the community, and it's a community that deserves this. I'm happy for our community, and hopefully we represent it well."

It was a relatively light weekend of games with several districts having bye weeks.

On the Class 6A slate, the biggest win was Bridgeland 48-14 smashing of Cypress Ranch to take the pole position in District 14-6A. Are the Bears for real? How about Stratford knocking off Cypress Ridge. A signature win for Spartan coach Todd Rankin.

Another interesting win was Klein Cain's 52-42 shocker over Klein.

All eyes were on Fort Bend on Friday as Marshall hosted Manvel. The Mavs held off VYPE's No. 1 team in Class 5A in an instant classic.
