CLASS 2A, DIVISION I AREA PLAYOFF
Mason (10-0) vs. Shiner (10-1)
Itís a shame one of these two teams has to get bounced in the second round. But this clash is one you wonít want to miss. Both teams have explosive offenses that can put a ton of points on the scoreboard.
Mason gets it done by dominating up front with offensive lineman Kyle Zavala and pounding the ball with workhorse running back Luis Castillo out of the Wing-T offense.
Shiner is also a run heavy team that operates out of the double tight end veer. The Comanchesí strong rushing attack is led by running back Chad Neubauer, who is a threat to take it to the house on every carry.
So which defense can take control up front and at least slow down these stud ball carriers?
Well, Masonís defense is built like a brick wall, giving up just 74 points total all year.
Shinerís unit isnít too shabby either, allowing just 16 points per contest with defensive end Dillon Kalina leading the charge.
EJís pick: Shiner 24, Mason 23
