GALENA PARK – For the first 24 minutes, it looked like North Shore of 2018.
Powerful defense, big-play offense and taking a two-touchdown lead into halftime along with the momentum of being up on Katy.
For the final 24 minutes, Katy looked like the state-championship-caliber program that the state of Texas and the country has come to know – pound the rock and play lights out defense.
Katy came back from a 21-7 halftime deficit, fueled by Ronald Hoff Jr.'s 206 yards and a touchdown to upend No. 1 North Shore 24-21 in the season opener on Thursday at Galena Park ISD Stadium.
