The Punchers hit the road again, this time to Christoval to take on the Cougars. Mason scored on their first possession and never looked back. The Cougars found themselves in a hole they could not escape. The Punchers went from a seven point lead in the first period, to a fourteen point lead at half. Every Puncher that checked into the game added to the victory as the Punchers pressed, ran several great fast-break situations and answered every defensive challenge the Cougars threw at them. This was the best ball I’ve seen these guys play. The Punchers dominated both ends of the boards lead by the rebounding efforts of Berreles, Williams, and Palacio. Martinez had a good scoring game as well as did Berreles.
The Punchers will host their own tournament this week-end with visitors from llano, Neuces Canyon, and Junction.
