Video: North Shore beats Katy in Class 6A Division 1 playoffs
Junior quarterback Dematrius Davis Jr. leads Mustangs to big win Friday.
North Shore got its revenge Friday with a 56-35 win to advance to the quarterfinals.
The two Houston-area powers combined to score touchdowns on the first six possessions of the game, producing a 21-21 tie midway through the second quarter.
That's when the Mustangs took over.
Dematrius Davis Jr.
and the defending state champs outscored the Tigers 35-14 the rest of the way.
The 2021 Virginia Tech commit totaled over 400 yards of offense to go with six touchdowns. Davis, the 2019 MaxPreps National Sophomore of the Year, threw for 134 yards and three scores to go with 283 yards on the ground and three more touchdowns. Charles King
hauled in two of his passing touchdowns and sophomore Jhalyn Bailey
had the other.
5-star running back Zachary Evans
added two scores on the ground.
North Shore will face either Tompkins (Katy) or Atascocita (Humble) next week with a spot in the semifinals on the line.
