North Shore went in to their 6A-1 UIL State Championship game without it’s 5-Star running back, Zach Evans due to being sent home from the team the night before, but still came out with a thrilling 31-17 victory over Duncanville to go back-to-back.
The night before the game Evans was sent home by coaches for conduct detrimental to the team.
However, the loss of such a dynamic player did not deter the Mustangs offense as quarterback Dematrius Davis went 6 for 12 for 91 yards and a score. His mobility helped carry his team as he rushed for 105 yards with two touchdowns on 16 attempts.
Duncanville came in to this title game without its star quarterback, Ja’Quinden Jackson, who tore his ACL in the previous round against Rockwall. They turned to freshman quarterback, Chris Parson, who made his first start in this title game. Parsons could do only so much in the game as we he was constantly facing pressure from a swarming Mustangs defense.
With the limitations on offense Duncanville couldn’t keep up with North Shore only muster up 42 yards on offense.
The Mustangs finish the year going 15-1 and reclaim their 6A-1 title in front of over 48,000 fans.
