Shiner 21, Mason 3
ROUND ROCK - When Shiner last saw Mason, the most common ending was a turnover. Nine times they gave the Punchers back the ball en route to a 55-7 loss in Georgetown.
The Comanches resolved this year would be different.
And it was.
The Comanches will face Mart next week after beating defending state champion Mason 21-3 on Friday evening in a game that was much more hard fought and closer than the score suggests.
The two teams spent much of the first half trading possessions until Evel Jones broke away for a 74-yard touchdown run with 38 seconds left in the half. That one play accounted for slightly less than half of the Comanches' 151 rushing yards in the game.
Jones had a total of 84 yards in the game on 10 carries. He also caught a 46-yard pass for a touchdown to help wrap up the victory with 3:43 left in the game.
But the big story of the game was the Comanches' defense, which held Mason's offense punchless all game long. Mason, long a running offense, didn't have a rusher with more than 69 yards, and turned the ball over twice with two interceptions.
Trevion Flowers was efficient both passing and running for the Comanches. He was 4 for 5 passing with a touchdown, his one imcompletion being an interception.
The senior quarterback also ran for 58 yards and the game-clinching TD from 2 yards out with 1:23 left.
