North Shore 31 – Duncanville 17
By Allan Jamail
Arlington, Texas — On Saturday, December 21, 2019 at the AT&T Stadium, in front of 47,818 spectators, the North Shore Mustangs — rated number one in the state — became the first team in University Interscholastic League (UIL) Class 6A Division I history to win consecutive state championship games. In a rematch game with the Duncanville Panthers, who the Mustangs defeated in 2018, they once again won 31 to 17.
Since the beginning of the UIL Class 6A Division I in 2014, Coach Kay and the Mustangs made history by being the first to win three state championships.
North Shore won despite being without three of their starters. Zach Evans and Jermond Batiste were grounded because of not complying with the team’s cell phone policy. This made three games Evans has had to sit out due to disciplinary reasons. Shadrach Banks has been unable to play in several games due to an injury.
