Saturday’s Class 6A Division I Texas high school football championship between No. 5 Duncanville and No. 8 North Shore was more about who wasn’t playing rather than who was.

Duncanville was without the services of quarterback Ja’Quinden Jackson was suffered a partially torn left ACL. On the other sideline, the Mustangs were without Zach Evans who reportedly violated team rules involving cell phone use.

In the rematch of the 2018 championship game won by North Shore on a game-ending Hail Mary pass, North Shore beat Duncanville 31-17 Saturday night before 47,818 fans at AT&T Stadium. Early in the third quarter, the game was tied at 17-17.

With Evans gone, North Shore still relied on a great ground game with Roger Hagan and quarterback Dematrius Davis each rushing for over 100 yards. The Mustangs’ ball-control offense held the ball for 27 of the game’s 48 minutes.
