20-17 : North Shore wins in goal line stand

The Mustang defense was the key to victory in the game against Katy. The goal line stand stopped them on the 1 yard line.

HOUSTON – In a battle between two Championship teams, the North Shore Mustangs came out on top, and will advance to the semi-final regional play-offs this Friday in the NRG Stadium.

The final five minutes of the game were exciting, and determined the win.

North Shore’s Kerrion Hadnot ran 48 yards for a touchdown, thwarting Katy’s defenders. With five minutes left, the score was then 20-17, but Katy wasn’t through trying.

On the next round, Katy QB Rocky Emery hit JC Angulo with a 43 yard pass, bring them to the Mustang 2 yard line, and what looked like a game winning TD.

But four plays later, on a 4th and goal on the 1 yard line, Katy coach Gary Joseph decided to try for a winning TD instead of a tie with a field goal. The Mustang defense was up to the challenge. Jacoby Allen stopped Katy’s Josh Oglesby with a 1 yard loss, and a turnover.

The North Shore Mustangs have defeated Dickinson 17-7 and Katy 20-17 in the regional play-offs.

Katy’s five year championship run ended with a 10-3 record, while the North Shore Mustangs, now 12-1, go on to the regional semi-finals Friday against Atascocita (11-1).

A large contingent of fans is expected at the NRG stadium to cheer the Mustangs on toward the state playoffs.
