Spring, Texas — September 10, 2021, Planet Ford Stadium — The GPISD North Shore Mustangs marked up a loss in a non-district game to the Spring Westfield Mustangs 27-21. Coach Jon Kay’s offense continues to sputter, and this time it led to their defeat.

Coach Kay has always strived for an aggressive offense and defense, but without costly penalties. So far, however, this squad in just 3 games has had 15 penalties costing 160 yards. Several of the offensive penalties led to creating too many yards to make up for the offense, forcing them to have to turn the ball over. The defensive penalties was just as costly, several giving their opponent extra offensive possessions.

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.
