Mustangs 49 – Woodlands Highlanders 21

By Allan Jamail

GPISD stadium – Thursday, August 25, 2022 the Defending 6A State Champion North Shore Mustangs trampled the visiting Woodlands Highlanders (WH). It was a “cakewalk” from the opening kickoff.

The Eastside Boys (NS) scored 28 points in the first quarter. They kept a double digit lead from start to finish in the non-district game. Ending the first half 42 – 7. Head Coach Jon Kay pulled his starters in the final quarter and then the Highlanders managed to score. The final score; NS 49 – WH 21(See touchdown photos scoring details)

It’s amazing how much a year makes, last season NS was riddled with penalties deep into the season. They were penalty free in this game, hopefully this kind of self-discipline will continue.

The Mustang’s defense lost some good seniors last year; however this unit though yet to be tested and proven appears to be up to the task of another state title.

North Shore travels to play the Spring Lions in a non-district game, Saturday, September 3rd at 6pm at Planet Ford Stadium. Both teams are 6A and undefeated.
