Wednesday, September 28, 2011 • Posted September 28, 2011

After a restful week off, the Mason Punchers returned to play last Friday, heading down to Ingram to take on the Warriors. From the opening minutes of the game, it all belonged to the Punchers.Less than half a minute into the game, Austin Trip brought the crowd to its feet with a 73-yard touchdown run. Rio Schmidt put the icing on the cake with an extra point kick, and the score was 7-0 with 11:38 still remaining in the first quarter. Only two minutes later, David Mora zigged and zagged his way down the field for 61-yards, scoring Mason's second touchdown of the night. Schmidt did the encore honors again, and the score was 14-0 with 8:59 left in the first quarter.Ingram pulled themselves for a while, and Mason would not score for almost five minutes of play. When they did, it would be David Mora again on a final 7-yard run, topped off by Schmidt's kick, and the score was 21-0 with 3:15 remaining in the quarter, and that is where it would remain as the second quarter of play began.The Warriors had a long stretch of possession during the second quarter, and made slow but methodical progress during almost seven minutes of play. However, Ingram was never able to successfully move the ball into the endzone, so they remained scoreless.Rio Schmidt proved that his running skills are just as good as his kicking when, with 2:25 left in the first half, he took a long pass from Austin Trip and made an 81-yard score. He provided his own extra points, and the score was 28-0.With only one minute left in the first half, David Mora scored Mason's final touchdown of the half. Schmidt's kick missed its mark, and the score going into halftime was 34-0.The second half of play saw little change for the Warriors, as Mason continued to control the action on the field. Mason would hold off scoring until almost half way through the quarter when Austin Trip made a 13-yard run for the touchdown. In a rarity, Schmidt's kick was actually blocked, and the score was 40-0 with 7:36 left in the quarter.David Mora would make the final score of the evening with only 1:53 left in the quarter when he made a 41-yard touchdown run. Schmidt's kick would put the score at 47-0, where it would stay till the final whistle blew. Ingram was unable to get on the board during the rest of play.This week, the Punchers will be traveling to Baird to take on Olney. Game time is 7:30 p.m.
