The 8th Grade Basketball team has put in a lot of time on the hardwood in the last couple of weeks, from the Llano Tournament to the District Tournament in Christoval and with a couple of regularly scheduled games in between. After placing 3rd in the District Tournament the Punchers finally were able to play at home hosting the visiting boys from Irion County.
Mason jumped on the visitors with a vengeance putting together an excellent first half of scoring and defensive play. The Punchers held Irion County to just two points in the first half while tacking on a 15 point first period followed by a 7 point second quarter. In period three and four the Punchers only allowed a total of four points in the second half while putting together an eight and six point run of their own. Next week the Punchers will host the visiting boys from Eldorado.
