The 8th Grade boys traveled to Llano this past weekend to play in the Llano Invitational Tournament. The Punchers took on Llano in the first game, and lead going into half-time by one point. Llano had a ten point third period forcing Mason to play catch-up ball, but the Punchers fought back in the 4th period holding Llano to six points while the Punchers tacked on ten. The Mason boys fell just short by one point at the games end.

The Punchers regrouped two hours later and took on the boys from Comfort in game two of the Round Robin Tournament.
Comfort jumped to an early lead of 10-15 in the first half and held their own in the third period, but the Puncher came from behind in the final stanza outscoring Comfort 11-3. Great come from behind win. This win gave Mason second place in the tournament.
