George Mason High School was done in by Central-Woodstock’s passing game at the Mustangs’ homecoming last Friday, as Central quarterback Matt Sherfey threw for three touchdowns in a 28-14 victory for the Falcons. Central also scored on a 67-yard punt return by Daniel Bauserman.

Mason outgained Central on the ground and looked sharp on two scoring drives. The first, which went 10 plays and 58 yards, ended with junior Bryce Cooper running untouched into the end zone from four yards out. The PAT by sophomore Henry Darmstadter brought Mason within seven points midway through the second quarter.

The Mustangs’ other points came early in the fourth quarter, after a 12-play, 52 yard drive that ended with a four-yard touchdown run by sophomore Brian Crigler, followed by Darmstadter’s PAT.

Mason’s top gainer for the night was junior Stephen Lubnow, who had 72 yards on 15 carries.

During Mason homecoming week festivities, the senior girls defeated the juniors in the Mustangs’ Powder Puff game Monday night.

But Mason couldn’t get anything going through the air, as the Falcons defensive rush forced senior quarterback Tyler Duncan to scramble whenever he attempted to pass. Duncan was caught behind the line five times, got only four throws off, and completed just one, a short gainer to senior end Brandon Alexander.

 

More than 1,200 were in the stands for the homecoming contest.

Homecoming-week festivities at Mason carried over into Monday, when the long-awaited Powder Puff flag football game finally was held. The contest, pitting the senior women against the junior women, had been postponed three times because of rain. The Class of ’11 prevailed, 12-0, with Hannah Walker and Violet Miller scoring touchdowns for the seniors.

This Friday the Mustangs’ men travel 40 miles west to Purcellville for a 7 p.m. kickoff against Woodgrove, a new high school that draws its students from western Loudoun County. With an enrollment topping 1,100, Woodgrove is classified as a double-A school, while Mason is single A. Mason is next at home on Oct. 15, opening its Bull Run District play against a strong Clarke County team.
