The Indians suffered a tough loss on Homecoming against the Mason Punchers, 7-28.

The Punchers scored early in the game and the Indians scored quickly after on a quarterback sneak from junior Cash Cook.

“We fought hard up to the fourth quarter,” Cook said. “Scoring that touchdown was a crucial point in the game.”

Defensively, the Indians were able to hold the Punchers to one score until the fourth quarter.

Junior Matthew Gonzales was awarded the “Big Hit Stick” from the coaching staff for his hit on a punt during the third quarter.

“I first went for the guy and missed him,” Gonzales said.  “He turned across the field and then I smoked him. Overall, I thought we fought hard up until the fourth quarter. It’s like we ran out of gas.”

The Indians finished the night with 185 yards of total offense. 168 came from the rushing attack led by sophomore Luke Wilson with 61 yards.

The Indians are currently 2-3 heading into their first district match on the road against the Jacksboro Tigers who are also 2-3.
