ROUND 2: North Shore faces Lake Travis in state power rematch
Let's go back a year.
Before North Shore's Hail Mary to win the Class 6A DI state title, the 'Stangs crushed Lake Travis 51-10 in the State Semis at NRG Stadium.
RB Zach Evans had four touchdowns and 196 yards. QB Dematrius Davis threw for 231 yards and two scores and the game was over by halftime.
North Shore's defense was stifling that day. Cavalier (13-1) Elite 11 QB Hudson Card (Texas) and Ohio State WR Garrett Wilson were completely locked down.
These two teams meet again for the right to go to AT&T Stadium next weekend for the state finals.
This time, "The Rematch" is in Austin.
So, Davis, Evans and the big OL are back at North Shore. They are big-time with Damieon George (Bama), Jaedon Roberts and Edzavier Deblaw. Much of that defense has graduated like Tony Bradford (Texas Tech). WR Shadrach Banks is out for the season with injury.
Card has been banged up for much of the season and TE Lake McRee has been out with an ACL. Weston Stephens has rushed for over 1,200 yards, while Kyle Eaves and Grayson Sandlin are the Card's favorite targets. The Cav defense has not seen the size and speed of North Shore.
The North Shore defense is led by Corey Flagg (Miami), Upton Stout and a solid rotation of defensive linemen.
Will it be enough to slow down the Lake Travis offense?
At the rate Dematrius Davis, Zach Evans and North Shore are scoring, the 'Stangs won't need but a few stops on defense.
PREDICTION: North Shore runs past Lake Travis with Davis, Evans and OL
