The North Shore Mustangs visited NRG Stadium on Black Friday to take on the Cy-Falls Eagles in their third playoff game of the season, winning by a final score of 28-21.
The Mustangs fell behind early, allowing the Eagles to score first; however, the Mustangs quickly tied the score on their next possession with an 11-yard run from Tyler Boudreaux. Shortly afterward, A 91-yard touchdown run by the Eagles along with an interception returned for a touchdown caused a bit of concern for some, but the Mustangs never lost focus.
Carl Guillory’s first touchdown of the day, a 55-yard run, brought the Mustangs within seven at half time.
The size, power and depth of the Mustang defense was evident in the second half as they kept the Eagles from scoring while North Shore tacked on two more touchdowns, a 9-yard pass from Bryant Badie to Eric Monroe in the third quarter and a 14-yard run from Guillory.
Next up the Mustangs face Dickinson in the regional finals on Saturday, December 5 at 1:00 PM at Pasadena Veterans Memorial Stadium.
