In every successful season there is a game that people will point to as the defining moment. That game took place last week as our Punchers defeated the Eagles of Eldorado in overtime. The victory put our Punchers back in control of their own destiny while galvanizing the Mason faithful. The game which was featured as a must win game for both teams moved the Punchers record to 1-1 in district play and left the Eagles of Eldorado on the brink of extinction at 0-2. There are only four games left in district play with the Cougars of Christoval next up on the menu.
Christoval is currently 0-2 in district play and 1-5 overall. Last year they won their district behind Class1A player of the year Kellen Gierke. This year they are in a rebuilding mode and currently lead the district in points against at 213 and are in last place in District 29. Like most teams that are experiencing a youth movement the Cougars will try to establish their ground game first by attempting to control the line of scrimmage. Their passing game is almost nonexistent. Against Junction last week they threw the ball only ten times for forty yards. Now with all that said, let me remind you what I have told you before.
Anybody can win on any given Friday night, especially when you're dealing with the seventeen year old mindsets of generation X !!! These are the kind of games that scare me. Christoval has nothing to lose and we have everything to lose. If we play with the same emotion and intensity that we displayed last week the Cougars do not stand a chance. If there is a melt down, we could find ourselves in a world of hurt at the blink of an eye. We need to STAY FROSTY!!
Game time is 7:30 p.m. at the Puncher Dome. We only have one more home game after this one so let's pack the stadium and build on the momentum that was established last week as we make our march to the playoff’s!
GO PUNCHERS !! GO COWGIRLS !!
