Mustangs Marvel Along

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."
