The Mason Punchers arrived at the Georgetown I.S.D. Stadium last Friday night with more than just butterflies in their stomachs! A nasty stomach bug had been making the rounds of Mason High School last week, and several of the players were still feeling the effects of that bug, as was Head Coach Kade Burns. Though the Punchers were moving slower than usual, they focused on their game, kept their heads about them, and then,,,, they played football! The first quarter moved slowly in relation to ...

It was amusing on Saturday to read the stories about last Friday's game between Mason and Refugio. They all expressed surprise at Mason's victory, and indicated that Refugio felt like every penalty went against them, every break went for Mason.

In the game I saw, the Punchers had nine penalties for a total of 81 yards, while Refugio had five penalt ...

The Three Rivers Bulldogs had an incredible 2014 season; but, it came to an end last Friday night when the Punchers defeated them 42-0 at Russell Stadium in Buda. The Punchers were at the top of their game Friday night. From the opening kickoff, the Mason team had control of the field, and they would shut down the Bulldogs every time they began an offensive drive. Early in the first quarter, Seth Hudson broke loose and ran in 17-yards for Mason's first touchdown of the night.

Conditions seemed oddly similar to 2013 on Friday night as Mason met up with the Shiner Comanches at Dragon Stadium in Round Rock. Storms were building in the area, just as they had last year when Mason and Shiner met up in Leander, though it was a bit warmer this time.
