North Shore Leaves Doubters In Dust, Topples Westlake In OT 21-14

HOUSTON’S NRG STADIUM – It’s the near perfect story, a tale Hollywood might write to be an inspirational blockbuster, only it would bear the tag “based on a true story.”

North Shore Senior High School, home of the Mustangs, began their season with a measure of adversity. Under second year head coach Jon Kay, the Mustangs won their first game of the season, then lost their next three in a row. Admittedly the losses were to teams who were highly ranked in the state, making North Shore the underdogs, but the Mustangs coaching staff and players expected to win them all. However, at 1-3, the Mustangs regrouped, put the past behind them, and began a long, slow ascent to the pinnacle of high school sports. They did not lose again.

As they remained undefeated, a feat many thought unlikely as they battled more highly ranked foes in the playoffs, the challenges became greater. Dickinson was supposed to knock them out. They didn’t. Converse Judson, a team who sent them home in previous semi-final matches, was highly favored to win. They did not. And finally, in the state championship game against Austin Westlake, the Mustangs again found themselves underdogs. But the Mustangs never looked or played like underdogs.

QB Maciah Long ran for 82 yards and two touchdowns, including the game winning touchdown in overtime. Long was named the offensive player of the game. (Text and Photos courtesy of Jonathan Frey/Galena Park ISD)
