2nd Half Surge Not Enough for ‘Stangs

A strong second half couldn’t make up the difference for the George Mason High School football team, and the Mustangs lost to the visiting Central High School team last Friday, 42-19.

Mason had zero points on the board to Central’s 35 at the end of the first half, but the second half would tell a different story.

The team controlled the ball for the entire third quarter, and managed to score three times in the fourth quarter.

“Central played a good game on Friday,” said Coach Tony Green, adding “the Mustangs got better as a football team on Friday night.”

The loss brings the Mustang season record to 0-4.

Mason will travel to Madison County High School Friday to take on the Mountaineers. The team is 2-2 this season.

“Madison once again has a strong physical football team,” Green said, and added that it would be another tough district game for the Mustangs.
