Our 7-8 year-old (8U) boys followed up last weekend’s 2nd place finish to bring home a 3rd place trophy in Llano this past weekend. Other area towns in the tournament were Llano, Brady, Johnson City, Kerrville, Boerne, Blanco, San Saba, Fredericksburg and Burnet (both Fredericksburg and Burnet had two teams each).
Mason started the tournament with convincing wins over Burnet and Kerrville for a third round rematch with Fredericksburg #1 who took 1st place honors in the previous weekend’s tournament. Mason started strong taking an early lead, yet a couple of unfortunate breaks allowed Fredericksburg to go up on Mason late in the game. Fredericksburg held on for the win, sending Mason to the losers bracket. Mason would not be denied winning back-to-back games against Johnson City and Fredericksburg #2 for another rematch with Fredericksburg #1 in the consolation game.
Our boys never quit, but simply did not have the stamina in the 4th game of the day to pull off another win. Fredericksburg #1 went on to beat Boerne in the championship game. This group of young men will compete in the Fredericksburg tournament this coming weekend to conclude their summer play.
Our 9-10 year-old (10U) boys hosted a 9-team outlaw tournament this past weekend. Towns traveling to Mason to compete were Blanco/Johnson City, Brady, Burnet (2 teams), Canyon Lake, Harper and Llano.
Mason’s 10U All-Stars performed very well throughout the tournament defeating Harper, Brady and Blanco/Johnson City in early rounds to put them undefeated going into the Championship Game where they would meet up with the talented Burnet Mean Green.
Mason continued to fight as they had all weekend but were eventually overtaken by the Mean Green team by a score of 10-14 to take 2nd place.
Our 11-13 year-old boys were off this past weekend.
