Mustangs headed to State

Eric Monroe (#11) leads the charge in the second half, carrying the banner for the Mustangs. Monroe rushed for a 32-yard touchdown and had a key interception. He was also named the Houston Chronicle High School Athlete of the Week for December 15.

The North Shore Mustangs, against many odds, have journeyed a tough road to earn the right to play in the state championship game, most recently defeating Converse Judson 23-17 at NRG Stadium Saturday evening. Judson, a perennially tough opponent, has advanced to the state semifinals 18 times a state record. But on this day, the Mustangs doused the Rockets fuse with a mighty defensive effort and the strength of their special teams.

The first score, and the only score of the first quarter, was a 23-yard field goal by North Shore’s kicker Aaron Cuevas. The defense shut down the Converse offense, aided by a punishing defensive line and a perfectly timed interception by Eric Monroe. In the second quarter the Mustang offense got things rolling, capping a drive with a 32-yard touchdown run by Eric Monroe, giving the Mustangs a 10-0 lead. But four minutes later the Rockets scored on a 58-yard pass. As tension mounted, Aaron Cuevas again answered the call, kicking a 46-yard field goal to give the Mustangs a little breathing room and a 13-7 lead at the half. But the cushion was not enough as the Rockets scored first in the second half and took the lead 13-14.

In a close race, Sylvester Turner defeated Bill King last Saturday to become the first Houston mayor to serve a four year rather than a two year term. He will need to solve issues of pensions, potholes, and policing during his time in office.

Jubilant but concilitory in his acceptance speech, Turner said “Let’s everyone put the Election behind us and go to work for a better Houston.” A final count put 108,389 votes for Turner, 104,307 for King.

Sylvester Turner is a native of Acres Homes in the Northeast, but promises to represent everyone in the city equally.

Other winners included Chris Brown for Controller, and Rhonda Skillern-Jones for school board.
