The George Mason Mustangs varsity football team lost their road game 56-28 to the Strasburg Rams last Friday night. The loss drops the Mustangs record to 1-5 on the season.
The Mustangs couldn’t get anything going against the Rams in the first half and trailed 49-0 at halftime. It was a disastrous first half in which the Rams scored touchdowns in all three phases of the game.
On the Mustang opening possession, they fumbled and the Rams recovered the ball at their own 48 yard line. Rams quarterback Hunter Funk connected with tight end Jonathan Kloosterman for a 52 yard touchdown on their first play after the turnover. Things would only go downhill from there for the Mustangs.
The Rams came out fired up and ready to play after suffering their first loss of the season the previous week and were celebrating homecoming as well. The Mustangs tried to rally in the second half against the Rams backups and outscored them 28-7, but a 49 point deficit was too much to overcome.
The Mustangs will be on the road again this week when they will play at Purchase Line High School on Saturday night at 6 p.m. Purchase Line High School is located in Commodore, Pennsylvania.
