February 4, 2016 — The celebration continued this past Thursday at Galena Park ISD Football Stadium for the North Shore Mustangs football team after claiming the Class 6A, Division I championship with OT win over Austin Westlake.
It was the December 19, 2015 state championship final at NRG Stadium the Galena Park North Shore Mustangs (East Side) (13-3) beat the Austin Westlake Chaparrals (14-2) 2114 in overtime to win the Class 6A Division I championship.
Thursday before a packed home team bleacher of fans, family and elected officials the Mustang football team wearing shirts claiming ownership of not just the school or city but rather the state received volumes of praise.
Coach Kay says hard work and dedication is what reversed the 1-3 losing start of the season to be able to come back and claim the state title. This reminds me of the late baseball legend Yogi Berra’s famous quote, “it ain’t over til it’s over.”
