Mason vs. Irion County
Wednesday, October 14, 2009 • Posted October 14, 2009

The race for the three playoff spots in District 29 saw a turn of events last week as Eldorado upset Menard. The victory has set the stage for a three way horse race between Rocksprings, Eldorado and Menard for the third playoff spot. The lead dogs in the District and the odds on favorites to win the District are still Mason or Junction. They have both been building steam and have been absolutely dismantling their opponents by never taking their foot off the accelerator.

Our Punchers will return to the friendly confines of the Puncherdome Friday night as they prepare to do battle with the Hornets of Irion County. The Hornets will be playing the role of the spoiler which means one thing, lookout! Historically teams that have fallen out of contention have a tendency to show up playing fast and loose, with a “we have nothing to lose attitude”. Junction got a taste of this last week as Irion County played them close, until Junction opened it up in the second half.

Irion County who got bit by the injury bug early on is on the mend and will showcase an offense that is pretty wide open. They had success throwing the ball against Junction last week and I expect we will see the same approach this week. When they do run the ball, which I really do not recommend against our defense, look for Bryan Kenely (6"0" 210LBS) to carry the load.

With only two home games remaining the Mason Faithful are on track to set a new attendance record at the Puncherdome. It seems that the “Purple Crush” has captured everybody’s imagination and the Mason Faithful cannot seem to get enough of this team. Let’s pack the Puncherdome, take the sting out of the Hornets and take one more step toward our second consecutive District Championship................GO PUNCHERS!!!!!!
