ABOUT SCHOOL INFORMATION

Houston Inside High School Sports Presents: The Woodlands at North Shore – 2022 Week 1 Football Highlights – Jon Kay’s North Shore Mustangs hadn’t played the Woodlands since 2007, but the two faced off Thursday night. Highlanders down 7-0 when Mabry Mettauer goes deep to Shane Walker which would set up a one-yard plunge. 7-7 is the score. After that, North Shore did what they do. Dominate. Kaleb Bailey hits Christopher Barnes with the short pass and “goodbye my friend…don’t forget to write”. That’s a 65 yard score to put the Mustangs up 14-7. Then Mettauer tries to get things going, but there’s Arkansas commit, Jacoby Davis there to step in front of this pass and Davis is taking this one back for a 53-yard house call which help earn the Mustangs our Defensive Title Belt this week. So we’ve shown you an offensive and a defensive touchdown…what are we missing??? Oh yeah….special teams. Here you go. Evan Jackson fields the punt at the 16 and after a few moves, it’s just pure speed. 84-yard return for 6. North Shore led 42-7 at the half and won it 49-21. Watch on YouTube
