After demolishing Atascocita, the Katy Tigers look to do the same to Atascocita’s rival, the North Shore Mustangs.
Katy has run through anyone it has faced since escaping The Woodlands 24-21 in week one.
The Tigers are averaging a 44 point margin of victory, excluding The Woodlands loss, that margin is much larger.
Meanwhile North Shore has had another winning season finishing 9-3, turning up the heat in the end. Since, it has scorched through the playoffs.
Headed by top 2020 running back Zachary Evans, North Shore is a young team that’s raw, but potent. Evans and 2021 Dematrius Davis head an offense which managed to pull off a win against the top-ranked Lamar defense.
They had their struggles with the Texans, but pulled off the win, and proved themselves to be a legitimate contender. They look to repeat last year’s upset of Katy in the same round.
Katy is as perfect of a team as you can get. The Tigers run a tight ship, don’t make mistakes and execute when called on.
The defense manhandled the toughest team last week. Atascocita did not cross midfield until nine minutes left, when Katy had pulled its starters.
The defense is led by Arizona State commit Michael Mautus, three-star defensive lineman Moro Ojomo and cornerback Keshon Rowe. Rowe had an interception and forced fumble last week.
It applies pressure on a weekly basis, forces turnovers and embarrassed the best running backs in the state. But it’ll have its hands full this week as coach Gary Joseph immediately turned his attention to Zachary Evans and the Mustangs following last week’s win.
“They’re well-coached, we know we’re going to have to play well, it was a dog fight last year, and we have to be physical and ready to move the ball,” Joseph said. “They have a really big running back. We’ve got our hands full with him and we’re going to have to play extremely well.”
Katy enters a tough test, but many said the same thing last week, they preach “leave no doubt.” This week is a great chance to do so on the big stage like NRG Stadium.
