Both teams have yet to earn a check in the win column this season, but by the end of the night Friday, one of them will. This Knight vs. Mustang matchup sets the stage for George Mason’s homecoming game.

“It will be a good game on Friday night,” Coach Tony Green said. He added that the Knights have been improving each week of the season. The same can be said for the Mustangs, and last Friday’s game against Strasburg High was proof of that for the Mason coach.

“We as a team improved in a lot of areas during the practice week and it showed on Friday night,” Green said.

Mason was able to keep pace with Strasburg in the first half, which ended with both teams tied at six points. Strasburg pulled ahead with a strong third quarter; while Mason fought back, the team couldn’t make up the difference and was defeated, 38-20.

“The football team played three good quarters of football on Friday night against a senior-heavy Strasburg team,” Green said.
