Austin (KXAN)– For the third time in the last four years the Lake Travis football season has ended in the state semifinals to Galena Park North Shore. 

The Cavaliers lost 49-21 Saturday at Kelly Reeves Athletic Complex in Round Rock.

North Shore scored on the first play from scrimmage on an 83-yard touchdown pass from freshman quarterback Kaleb Bailey to David Amador.

Lake Travis answered with a Bo Edmundson to Chernet Estes touchdown pass.  Bailey then scored on a 62-yard touchdown run to give North Shore a 14-7 lead in the first quarter. The Cavs were able to answer again on a 47-yard touchdown run from Derrick Johnson to tie the game with 9:14 to go in the second quarter.  

From there it was all Mustangs, as they scored 21 unanswered points to take a 35-14 lead at halftime. North Shore safety Jayven Anderson stepped in front of an Edmundson pass and returned the interception 32-yards for the final score of the first half.  

North Shore came out in the second half, forced a Lake Travis punt, and then put together a scoring drive to make it 42-14. The Mustangs would add another third quarter score for 35 unanswered points before Edmundson hit Caleb Burton, who will sign with Ohio State, for the final score of the game.

Other than the touchdown run from Johnson, Lake Travis struggled with North Shore’s defensive line led by University of Texas commit Kristopher Ross.  Bailey finished with two touchdown passes and two touchdown runs, all in the first half.

Lake Travis ends the season with a 12-3 record after making their 6th state semifinal appearance in the last seven years.  North Shore will play for their third state championship in the last four years. The Mustangs will face Duncanville in the 6A Division 1 title game next Saturday.
