The Punchers traveled to Eldorado Monday to take on the Eagles. Eldorado jumped out in the lead early leaving the Punchers behind in the first period by the score of 5-10. The Punchers finally settled down and started to play some very good defense and by half-time lead 15-11.
In the 3rd period, the Eagles took advantage of several Puncher turnovers and once again took the lead 21-23. In the forth period Mason was outscored 8-11 resulting in the final score of Mason 29, Eldorado 34.
We did a lot of good things in this game, but we didn’t handle the ball very well. We had too many turnovers. Our rebounding improved and we are getting better in our press, but we are going to have to improve on taking care of the ball.
Our next outing will be against Menard, Monday in Mason.
Mason 5 10 6 8
Eldorado 10 1 12 11
