For the second consecutive week, the George Mason Mustangs suffered a disappointing loss, this time to Generals of Stonewall Jackson, by a score of 28-13.
After suffering a loss at Page County in their first road game of the season, the Mustangs continued to show any type of flow on the offensive end. While the Mustangs had a handful of large pass gains that led to scores, they were not enough to put a dent in the General’s defense.
After being shut out in the first half, junior Ben Taylor provided the Mustangs with their two biggest gains, both of which set up Mason touchdowns. The first play was a 35 yard pass to Senior Joel Chandler. The other play was a nearly 60 yard run up the sideline that bought the Mustangs a chance to tie the game at 14 near the end of the third quarter.
However, the ensuing extra point attempt by Junior Manuel Viega-Diaz was blocked, leaving the score at 14-13, and derailing Mason’s momentum. The loss of Chandler to a left knee injury at the end of the third quarter severely hurt Mason’s running game. The Generals put the game away in the fourth quarter, scoring two more touchdowns to put the final score at
George Mason receives a much needed bye week this week, followed by a non-district road game against the Luray Bulldogs on the 28th.
