HOUSTON, TEXAS (December 15, 2018) With the 51-10 domination of the Lake Travis Cavaliers at Houston's NRG Stadium on Saturday, the North Shore Mustangs punched their ticket to the UIL Class 6A, Division 1 football championship game next Saturday (December 22) at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. The No. 1 Mustangs will face the No. 4 Duncanville Panthers, who downed No. 2 Allen by the score of 44-35 on Saturday. 

In a related game, Beaumont West Brook defeated Westlake 35-30 to advance to the Class 6A, Division 2 championship. The Bruins will play the winner of the Longview vs. Tascosa game. One interesting fact is that North Shore and West Brook are members of UIL District 21-6A, with the Mustangs talking the district title and the Bruins finishing in second place. North Shore goes into their title game with a 15-0 record, while West Brook posts a 13-2 record. The two Bruin loses came at the hands of North Shore (55-7 on October 26) and Strake Jesuit (55-40 on September 7). Duncanville brings a 15-0 record to the match up against North Shore. 2018 will make Duncanville's second appearace in the title game, having won the championship in 1998. The Mustangs have previously won two state titles in two appearances (2003, 2015) and made 24 playoff appearances.
