The Eagles from Goldthwaite paid the Punchers a visit this past evening and they came ready to play some well executed football.The Eagles scored twice in the first period. Once on a 17 yard sweep and then again on a drive that covered 52 yards. Each score resulted in only six points however due to good defense on the point after.Mason had to regroup and reorganized themselves but they put together a good drive in the second period. Offensive linemen Michael Jefferson, Riley Pape, and Eli Timms opened several good running lanes for backs, Owen, Townsend, and Sanders as they advanced the ball to the Goldthwaite 43 yard line. Sanders then connected with wide-receiver, Evan Dayton. Dayton carried the ball all the way to the three yard line. Baylee Owen then punished across the goal for the score. Owen tacked on the point after and the Punchers were on the board, but trailing 12-8 at half time.The third period was a period that the Punchers simply could not get their hands on the ball. Goldthwaite used up most of the quarter on a long sustained drive and ended with a score from the 2 yard line. Good defensive play was seen during the drive by, Zach Weeks, Bricio Balderas, Jose Rojo, Dawson Nieschwitz, Brayden Waite, Caleb Hyatt, and Austin Habecker.The 4th quarter was scoreless but several good defensive plays were made by a few of the Punchers. Dayton intercepted an Eagle pass mid-way through the period and James Schwertner, along with Jackson Chapman, and Scott Harwell were in on several good tackles. Goldthwaite did a good job on the win, finishing out the night 20-8. Next week the Punchers join up with their 8th grade team mates to take on the Blizzards in Winters.
