Westlake led throughout until North Shore took a 21-17 with 4:16 to play in the game.

The Chaparrals came right back, driving to the North Shore 1-yard line. On a 4th and Goal at the 1, junior quarterback Cade Klubnik scored the game-winner.

Next-up, Westlake will play No. 24 Southlake Carroll. It will be a matchup of father-son head coaches with the Chaps led by Todd Dodge and Southlake Carroll led by Riley Dodge, who while playing quarterback for his dad in 2006, led the Dragons to a state championship.
