ROSHARON, TX. – On 7 PM Friday, August 27, 2021, at Freedom Stadium, the Galena Park ISD North Shore Mustangs easily defeated the Alvin ISD Shadow Creek Sharks 33-10.
Head Coach Jon Kay said months ago — after losing his premier offense, led by Auburn-bound quarterback and 4-year starter Dematrius Davis, as well as receiver Shadrack Banks to TCU — that he’ll lean on his experienced defense to keep them in the win column until the new offense, led by two junior quarterbacks, can materialize as a productive unit.
The Eastside Boys’ defense performed as Kay wanted; they destroyed the Sharks’ offense, making 4 interceptions, two of those for pick-six touchdowns. The stampeding defense relentlessly chased Sharks quarterback Duke Butler all night — he could only complete 8 of 23 passes (35%) — and held their running game to minus yards gained, 21 attempts for 14 yards with only 5 first downs.
