Friday, October 26, 2018 – Houston, TX — At Galena Park ISD Stadium, the undefeated number one state ranked North Shore Mustangs scored eight touchdowns against the visiting Beaumont West Brook Bruins, ending in another lopsided victory with a score of 55 to 7.

The Mustangs stingy defense kept the Bruins scoreless until late in the game when Coach Jon Kay pulled his starting defense players from the game, the Bruins lone touchdown came with 40 seconds remaining in the game. In the eight games played, the defense has only allowed 47 points to be scored on their team.

North Shore’s offense has scored 421 points in 8 games, averaging 53 points a game. They moved up to number one in the state with the Maxpreps computerized tabulations that utilize the huge number of game results stored in the MaxPreps database. Generally, the more a team wins the higher the ranking, but the system also takes into account quality wins (against other highly ranked opponents) and strength of schedule.
