George Mason H.S.
Mason Varsity Football Ekes Win Over Stonewall Jackson
The Mason varsity football team played a scoreless regulation against Stonewall Jackson high school last Friday night, but came out with a 7-6 win after just one overtime exchange.
The Mustangs scored on their first overtime possession on a 10-yard touchdown strike from junior quarterback Tyler Duncan to sophomore tight end Stephen Lubnow. Freshman kicker Henry Darmstadter then hit the extra point to make the score 7-0.
Stonewall answered with a touchdown on fourth down, and decided to go for the win by attempting a two-point conversion.
The conversion attempt was stuffed by senior linebacker Matt Palmieri who sealed the game for Mason. It was the second week in a row that Palmieri made the difference in the game by stopping PAT attempts.
With the victory, Mason moves to 3-0 on the season. They play Colonial Beach in their second home game of the season this Friday evening.

The Park View match got off to a promising start, but Park View would eventually counter the strong start for the Mustangs, and won the match 3-0. “Before the district game I want the team to really perform as a team unit,” said Head Coach Liz Rizzi.
