The settlement of Mason grew up around Ft. Mason and was established by the U. S War Department as a front line defense against the Kiowa, Lipan Apache and the Comanche on July 6th 1851.
On December 7th 2012 in Round Rock the battle continues, only this time it will be the Mason Punchers versus the Comanches of Shiner. I do expect an all out war this year between these two fine teams.
Much has changed since we dismissed the Comanches last year 55 - 7 and they turned the ball over 10 times to us. This year, so far, they are holding on to the ball and they have an offense that is filled with speed, speed and more speed. Of course speed has to have a place to run and last year they could not find the open lanes. Let’s just hope this year that’s the case again.
Our defense last week showed some flaws in the first half with the opposing QB completing 10 out of 15 passes. Move to the second half with us tightening the reins in our secondary and the QB only completed 5 of 15. So my hat goes off to the coaches and the athletes for a job well done.
The lone opponent comparison that we have to go off of is our game against Three Rivers. We won our game 35-12 and they won 35-13 so that in itself says it’s going to be a great battle.
Reeves Stadium in Round Rock is a state of the art facility and has 1500 seats with back rests on both sides so get there early and secure your spot. Gates will open @ 6 p.m. and this is going to be a battle of wills that will more than likely be won in the trenches and I personally like our odds with this TEAM to win that battle. This is December football in Texas and the Quarter-Finals for the State Championship!
To quote Coach Kade Burns in his half time interview at last year’s State Championship Game, LETS GET IT!
