North Shore 45, Dickinson 14
Houston, Texas: It was a beautiful day for football in Pasadena - clear skies and 60 degrees. The North Shore Mustangs took on Dickinson in the fourth round of playoffs on Saturday, December 5. The Mustangs took an early lead on an exciting 96-yard punt return for a touchdown. Dickinson followed up with a touchdown scoring drive to even the score at seven. An interception by Josh Sifuentes sparked a surge late in the first half. The Mustangs tacked on 10 more points - an Aaron Cuevas 22-yard field goal and a 13-yard touchdown pass from Bryant Badie to Eltroy Potts, giving them a 17-7 lead at half time.
The Mustangs struck first in the second half with a one-yard touchdown run by Guillory. Dickenson struck back on their ensuing drive with a touchdown of their own; however, it would be the last time they scored.

Next the offense scored on a 2-yard run by Guillory. Next, the defense scored on a 45-yard interception return.
