10/18 District Championships @ VOA 1st place  


No surprises this weekend. The Mason Boys’ Cross Country team won the Division I Southwest Ohio District Championship, proving they are a force to be reckoned with at the upcoming regional and state meets. The Comets recent 3rd place GMC finish may have produced a few doubters of the Mason talent. But with sophomore sensation Zach Wills back in the lineup and strong finishes by the rest of the Comet runners, those doubts were erased at Saturdays district meet at Voice of America.
“Going into the district championship race the team had a solid week of training,” said Mason assistant coach Travis Murray. “We didn’t back off too much (training) as we’re still looking down the line in terms of peak performance.”
A key to the Comets success on Saturday included the return of Zach Wills who did not run in the GMC meet. With Zach’s return the team had its normal "feel" again according to Coach Murray. Wills 1st place finish (16:01.20) topped Lakota West’s Aaron Gehring (GMC champion) by almost 3 seconds.
Another important component of the race was the Mason “pack of 4” led by senior Ed Carlin (6th place), junior Matt Larcomb (7th), junior Matt Kahl (9th), and sophomore Matt Kincaid (10th). Five Mason runners placed in the top 10 overall. Sophomore Tate Honaker ran a great race as the Comet's sixth man, beating Elder's 4th and 5th men and finishing in 16:49-- his best time of the season.
Mason won with a team score of 33 followed by Elder (61), Lakota West (87), Moeller (120) and Milford (127) rounding out the top five teams. Complete meet information can be found at www.baumspage.com. The top four teams and individual runners that finished in the top 16 advance to next Saturdays Regional Meet at Troy, Ohio. The boys Division 1 race is set for a start time of 12:35 pm.

Comets March on to State as Regional Champs!

The boys' cross country team continued their race to the state meet, winning the programs first Regional Championship at Troy on Saturday.  The Comets will compete in the Division I state meet on Saturday, Nov. 1 at Scioto Downs in Columbus.

"I was very pleased. It's our first regional championship ever and this region is a tough region to win anytime," Mason coach Tom Rapp said. "I'm very proud of the guys, they did a great job."

Once again sophomore running sensation Zach Wills was the individual region champion blowing away the nearest competitor by an 8 second margin.  "It's awesome. I just love my team and everyone on it," Wills said. "It's an awesome feeling just being able to go to state with my guy best friends."

Wills was followed by junior Matt Kahl (13th, 16:32.91), senior Ed Carlin (16th, 16:34.65), sophomore Matt Kincaid (23rd, 16:46.85) and junior Matt Larcomb (28th, 16:55.32). The Comets finished with a team score of 67, 33 points lower than second place Centerville.

" We're running well, we're running with toughness and we're running with confidence," commented head coach Tom Rapp. "We've come a long way. When I first started coaching here we had trouble even getting to this meet and to win it is a thrill."

11/1 OHSAA Championships @ Scioto Downs


The Boys Cross Country team won Mason High Schools first OHSAA CC State Championship on Saturday at Scioto Downs in Columbus, Oho. Super sophomore Zach Wills led the team and field of 144 competitors winning an individual state title.

The final results were a duplication of much of the rest of the Comets 2008 season with Wills finishing first and the team finishing first. Except for the GMC meet (in which Wills did not participate) the Comets raced through their schedule in dominating fashion winning five Invitationals then adding a district, regional and now state championship.

The Comets outpaced second place Hillard Davidson by a 20-point margin while Wills time of 15:15.66 beat 2nd place Stuart Edmonds of Twinsburg by almost 14 seconds. "I was expecting a fast time,” said Wills. “We were really just focusing on place, but with good competition comes good times."

Other Comet contributors to the team state title included; Matt Kahl (29th), Ed Carlin (46th), Matt Kincaid (51st), Matt Larcomb (59th), Tate Honaker (122nd), and Eric Hauser (126th).

Other teams at this years state meet may need to get use to seeing a lot of Comets in front of them in the future. The Scioto Downs podium could become a familiar place for Mason over the next several seasons. The Comets will graduate only one senior from the group of seven runners who competed in this years state meet. The opportunity to rewrite the state cross country record books in green is certainly a strong possibility.

For now the team can rest and take pride in knowing they are the Division 1 Cross Country State Champs!

Rachel Mann, Emily Drake and Mirand Carney also turned in great efforts that took us to a 3rd place finish behind the likes of Kings and West.

This was a strong showing, seeing that these teams ran their varsity squads, and we ran our JV. This team is very deep and the Kings Invite was a great shocase for that dept.

Mason Highlights



@UC Nippert Stadium 2:45 pm

lost 28-17 0-1 0-0

For the first three quarters of Saturday's Skyline Chili Crosstown Showdown game against Clayton Northmont, Mason took advantage of Thunderbolt mistakes, benefited from lucky bounces and placed itself in position to pull a season-opening upset.

Then the fourth quarter started.
Northmont claimed its first lead of the game with two touchdowns in the first two minutes of the fourth quarter, and then added another a few minutes later to salt away a 28-17 victory over the Comets.

Despite being outgained 163-37 in yards in the first half, Mason jumped to an early 10-0 lead thanks to two punt blocks by senior defensive end Clay Northcutt. Northcutt's first block set up a 29-yard field goal by Andrew Grage, while his second ended in a Mason touchdown.

After Northcutt blocked the punt, teammate Kyle Searer scooped it up and ran toward the end zone. When a Northmont tackler punched the ball out of Searer's grasp, it bounded into the back of the end zone where Northcutt fell on it for the Mason touchdown.

In the third quarter, Mason benefitted from a lucky bounce to score its only offensive touchdown. On a third-down play at the Northmont 46, Koman attempted to connect with receiver Mychael Bembry on a 10-yard out. The ball tipped off Bembry's hands, then off the hands of a Northmont defender, and flew into the arms of Mason's Jason Lamb, who was 10 yards behind the play. Lamb raced into the end zone untouched for the Comet score.

8/29 Anderson lost 42-13 0-2 0-0 Few highlights for the Comets as the defending Div. 2 State Champs  overruns Mason.  Mason's lone TD was the results of a 7-yard run by Michael Bembry. Game stats
9/5 Withrow won 53-18 1-2 0-0

The Comets unveiled their new field and also unveiled a resurgent offense exploding for 36 2nd quarter points en route to their first win of the 2008 season.  A feeling of urgency was on the sideline as the Comets strived to put the last two weeks behind them.

"This is what I thought we could do," Mason coach David Sedmak said. "I thought we were capable of doing this, and finally we did it. It was incredible."

The Mason offense put up 464 yards of total offense scoring on their first three possesions of the game.  The Comet defense forced 6 Withrow turnovers that produced 35 of the Mason points.

Mason sophomore David Fulcher, son of the former Bengal great, rushed for 96 yards on 12 carries to lead the Comets. Alex Martinez ran for 56 yards and a touchdown for Mason (1-2), who had 272 of their yards on the ground. Senior quarterback Patrick Koman added 136 yards and 3 touchdowns through the air.

The Comets will host the Lakota West Firebirds next Friday in what will be showcased as the annual Cross County Showdown sponsored by Brazenhead.

9/12 Lakota West lost 21-6 1-3 0-1


With their defense providing big play after big play, the Firebirds earned a hard-fought 21-6 win over host Mason in the Greater Miami Conference opener Friday night, Sept. 12, at Dwire Field at Atrium Stadium. 

The Comet running attack that rolled up some big yardage last week struggled (77 yards on 34 attemplts) while quarterback Patrick Koman was hurried into two interceptions and was sacked three times.

West drew first blood when Rick Finley capped off a 13-play, 56-yard drive with a 2-yard TD run with 8:58 left in the second quarter.  West blocked a Mason punt with 1:40 left in the 1st half to go up 14-0.  Mason countered with a 37-yard Andrew Gage field goal before the half cutting the West lead to 14-3. 

West scored another 2nd half TD and Mason got another Gage field goal to round out the scoring.

Neither team put up notable offensive numbers.  The West offense gained 177 yards on 51 plays while the Comets went 60-158 yards.

9/19 Hamilton lost 32-7 1-4 0-2

The Comets' lone score came in the second quarter when they went 54 yards in six plays, with Jordan Barnes finishing it off with a 13-yard touchdown run. Mason's five other possessions in the first half netted a total of minus-1 yard.

The GMC's top-ranked defensive unit held Mason to 108 total yards.

9/26 Colerain lost 48-27 1-5 0-3

Comets Put A 1st Half Scare Into Cardinals

The heavily favored Colerain Cardinals found out in the first half that they couldn't take Mason lightly.  A resurgent Comet offense out scored top ranked Colerain and led 27-20 at the half.  No other team in on the Cardinals schedule this season has accomplished that feat. 

The second half was a different story.  The Cardinal offense proved they are one of the top teams in the nation scoring 28 unanswered points to win going away. 

Mason QB Jordan Barnes was 17 of 36 with 1 TD.  Craig Taylor caught 6 passes for 80 yards and 1 TD.  Nick Wehby set a new Comet record with his 99-yard kickoff return in the 1st quarter.  Patrick Koman scored Mason's final TD on a 16-yard run in the 2nd quarter to give the Comets the lead going in to the half.

9/16-9/18 GMC Championships 1st place Emily Wright-148    


The Mason girls' golf team blew away the competition Wednesday and Thursday at Wetherwax Golf Course. The Comets won their second consecutive GMC Golf Championship and set a new record team score for the event in the process.

There was no power outage for the Comets as they shot 41 strokes better than second place Lakota West in the two-day tournament. Mason’s 625 team score topped last year’s record mark by 16 strokes (Mason-641). By comparison, the 2006 Lakota West State Championship team shot 659 at the same tournament.

Sophomore Emily Wright garnered GMC Player of the Year honors with a two-day total of 148 (75-73). Four of six Mason golfers finished in the top six scores of the event. Emily Wright (1st), Alexis Nelson (3rd), Erin Michel (4th), Jessica Zhang (5th) and Elizabeth Nebraski (7th) all received First Team All-GMC honors.

For Mason, this is the team's seventh consecutive tournament victory this season which includes two tournament wins over defending state champion Cuyahoga Falls Walsh Jesuit.

"The girls have been so focused this year,” said head coach Fred Reeder. “They see a clear purpose this year: to win a state championship and prove they belong among the elite girls' golf teams in Ohio history.”

Team depth is what has separated the Comets from the competition this year. In three of the tournaments - Pickerington Invitational, Middie Invitational and Villa Madonna Invitational – the Lady Comets have set new team scoring records. Mason’s second team has illustrated the depth of talent on this year’s team, as they have finished no worse than 4th in any tournament.

Mason travels to the Glass City for the Toledo St. Ursula Invitational on Saturday. The event will include a third meeting with Walsh Jesuit (defending Div. 1 State Champions). The Comets will be without the services of their #1 player, Alexis Nelson, who will miss the tournament for a college visit. The girl’s golf Sectional Championships will begin on October 2nd.

10/8 District Championships 1st Place Emily Wright (75) see highlights  


There was no doubt who the favorite was going into Wednesdays, Southwest District Girls Golf Championships at Weatherwax Golf Course. The question by many was not if, but by how much. The Mason Girls didn’t disappoint as they captured their second consecutive District championship and are off to Columbus for a State title run.

The Comets fired a 319, eight strokes better than runner-up St. Ursula (327). Ursuline (330) and Lakota West (341) grabbed the final team spots for next week's state tournament.

“It’s actually a relief to win this,” said Mason head coach Fred Reeder. "It was definitely a goal to get back to Columbus after being there last season.” The Comets are undefeated this year adding to their sectional and GMC titles with the win at District.

Sophomore Emily Wright earned medalist honors with a 75, firing a 38 on Meadows and a 37 on Valley View. Senior Alexis Nelson and sophomore Erin Michel each scored 81, while sophomore Jessica Zhang and senior Elizabeth Nebraski both had an 82. Other members of the Mason team include; seniors Hannah Swoyer and Alli Wehrman; juniors Kathleen Casey, Deanna Mychalishyn and Chelsea Sturtevant.

Last year the Comets were runner-up to eventual state champion Cuyahoga Falls Walsh Jesuit. This years state finals will be held Oct. 17-18 at The Ohio State University Gray course.

10/17 OHSAA STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS 1st place      


Expectations and anticipations are sometimes difficult to live up to, but the Mason Girls’ Golf team proved they are Ohio’s best this past weekend in Columbus. After going unbeaten in every match, invitational and tournament in the 2008 campaign, the talented and highly favorite Comets didn’t disappoint. Mason not only claimed the program’s first golf state championship, but did so in record fashion. Their 307 team score on Friday (one day state tourney record) combined with Saturday’s 323 total tied the overall state tournament record of 630 held by Dublin Jerome in 2000.

Weather conditions were not ideal on Saturday, but the Comets still managed to add to their Friday total, outdistancing second place and defending state champion, Cuyahoga Falls Walsh Jesuit, by an amazing total of 26 strokes. Finishing third at 656 was Columbus Bishop Watterson, who lost the tiebreaker for second place. In fourth place was Cincinnati St. Ursula. All results can be found on the OHSAA website: www.ohsaa.org.

"After last season's state runner-up performance, our team decided second place just wasn't acceptable,” said head coach Fred Reeder. “They worked hard and bonded. These girls never lost focus on their ultimate goal: winning the state title."

Mason sophomore Erin Michel, with her two-day scores of 78-75 (153), finished on the state's first team. Three Comets made second-team All-State: senior Alexis Nelson, 76-82 (158); sophomore Jessica Zhang, 75-84 (159); and sophomore Emily Wright, 78-82 (160). Senior Elizabeth Nebraski rounded out the Comets’ scoring with a 170.

"We have such a deep team, which is a huge advantage,” said Reeder. “With our 10 varsity golfers, I was able to mix around the lineups at every invitational and we still won every tournament. I can't imagine any coach in Ohio history who has ever had that luxury."

The future looks hopeful for a Comet repeat next year with an experienced and talented group of underclassman returning. "The exciting thing about this season - and this is news other teams may not want to hear - is the returning players believe we can even be better next year,” said Reeder.

“We have a chance for a dynasty."

The Comets picked up the pace to try to get things even but struggled to organize combinations that resulted in scoring opportunities.

Makeup from 9/16

won 3-0 10-2 6-1


The Mason Lady Comets along with Fairfield and OakHills were in a 3 way tie for first place in the GMC all with 5-1-0 records, as the Comets looked to knockoff the Fairfield Indians in a head to head match up on their home turf in Mason.

It was immediately apparent that the Comets were fired up and ready to play as they came out with an agressive offensive attack. In the early minutes, shots were taken from the 20 yrd line by both Frye and Collins, but sailed a little high over the goal. At 16:30 into the first half, Hailey Morris slipped a ball through to Courtney Collins just ahead of the Fairfield defender, giving Collins an open break away and sure shot past the Indian keeper and into the goal for an early Mason 1-0 lead, bringing the Mason fans to their feet! Fairfield tried to counter with a corner kick opportunity and minutes later with a shot on goal, but DeFrank was there for the save. The Comets came back with a corner of their own, finding the loose ball, Collins turned and fired, but Fairfield's keeper came up with the save. Mason continued to pressure with back to back shots by Morris and Frye. Just under 3 minutes left in the half, Collins found Hoenicke on the outside who in turn made a beautiful cross back to Collins in the middle who fired the shot into the back of the net putting the Comets up 2-0 going into the half.

The 2nd half started with a pouring rain, but it didn't cool off the Comets as they continued to win balls, defend, and posses in hopes to maintain their lead. Early shot attempts were taken by Leist and again by Collins along with back to back Mason corner kicks... but neither resulting in a goal. Agressive Comet offense continued with another shot attempt by Emily Crye, just missing wide of the goal with under 24 minutes to play. The Indians looked to be tiring as the Comets maintained great possession. As the clock was winding down under a minute, Mason earned yet another corner kick. As Hailey Morris placed the ball nicely high into the box, Heather Jung zeroed in on it with a perfect header into the goal icing the game for the Comets at 3-0!

10/2 Hamilton won 8-0 11-2 7-1 Goals were scored by Atkinson,Frye,Crye,Morris, and Courtney Collins and Kristin Leist both had two goals each. Senior Emily Crye led the Comets with 3 assists in the match.
Assists: Crye (3), Hoenicke,Matula,Siebel,Atkinson.
10/7 Sycamore tied 1-1 11-2-1 7-1-1


The Mason Girls’ Soccer team won the 2008 GMC Championship Tuesday night, “with a little help from their friends.” The Beatles hit tune from ‘60’s was very appropriate as the Comets needed a little help from another GMC foe (probably not friend) to win their first conference title. Mason’s 1-1 tie of two-time defending GMC champion Sycamore opened the door for an outright league title for the Lady Comets. Sophomore Janese Atkinson scored the Comet’s lone goal.
Oak Hills and Mason entered the last night of conference play with identical GMC records (7-1). Mason’s only loss was to Colerain and Oak Hill’s only loss was to the Comets. While Mason was tying Sycamore, Fairfield was knocking off Oak Hills (1-0) putting the title into Comet territory for 2008.
“We are obviously very excited to reach one of our goals,” said Mason head coach Katie Barnes. “It was a total team effort.” The Comets are led by the strength of 10 seniors who last year finished 2nd to Sycamore in their first season in the GMC. “We have a talented, experienced group of players who work extremely hard,” said Barnes.
Mason is the 4th seed overall in the upcoming District Tournament. They will host Winton Woods on Monday, Oct. 13th at 7:00 pm. The winner of that game will move on to play the winner of the Lakota East/Seton contest on Thursday, Oct. 16th.
According to Coach Barnes the expectations for her club are still out there. “The scary thing for other teams is I don’t think we have played 80 minutes of soccer yet.” The Comets will get some additional tournament tune up opportunities with upcoming home games this Thursday and Saturday against Loveland and Mercy closing out the regular season.
Team members include; Janese Atkinson, Emily Crye, Megan Frye, Courtney Hoenicke, Courtney Collins, Amy Lipton, Stephanie Gort, Heather Jung, Kristen Leist, Hannah Moore, Hailey Morris, Kimberly Connor, Skylar Chew, Kelly Loughead, Ali Siebel, Britney Voorhis, Megan Matula and Rachel Defrank.
Mason has a current overall record of 11-2-1.

10/9 Loveland won 4-0 12-2-1 7-1-1

Goals by Kristen Leist, Hailey Morris, Megan Frye and Liz Finley sealed the deal for the Comets. Emily Crye, Courtney Hoenicke, Kristin Leist and Kelley Lawhead all had assists and Rachel Defrank is credited with the shut out.

10/11 Mercy won 1-0 13-2-1 7-1-1

What a beautiful "Senior Day, 2008" celebration!

The pregame ceremonies began with a tribute to our seniors: team manager Katie Erbeck and 10 senior players, Emily Crye, Britney Voorhis, Rachael DeFrank, Hailey Morris, Amy Lipton, Ali Siebel, Kelly Loughead, Megan Matula, Courtney Collins, and Skylar Chew. An array of emotions were felt as the senior girls took the field for their last regular season game vs Mercy. It was a slow start for the Comets as they may have been still caught up in the hoop-la of the day, while Mercy looked eager to beat the GMC champs with their competitive play. Mason struggled with Mercy's push-up defense as the Comets were caught off sides numerous times in attempt to get the ball forward. At the 18:00 minute mark of the game, Courtney Collins was out front with a break-away and a shot that was just wide of the near post.
Pressure continued by Mercy with several shots saved by Mason keeper, DeFrank. With 17:00 left in the half, Krisitn Leist took a direct kick hoping to put the Comets on the board, but was denied. A follow up shot within a minute by Leist was also saved by the Mercy keeper. It looked like the Comets were sure to get a goal when Hailey Morris on a break away was tripped up from behind just outside the box resulting in a Mason direct kick from the 20. Once again, the Comets were unable to take advantage of the set piece. With under 3:00 in the half, Mercy looked to score on a direct which was deflected out by DeFrank setting up a corner for Mercy, but the half ended in a 0-0 score.
In the locker room at the half, Coach Barnes was sure to settle her team down and give them some new directions for the second half. The half began with defender Skylar Chew delivering a long ball up to Leist who's shot was deflected out setting up an unsuccessful corner for the Comets. Into 3 min. of play, Leist again carried to the goal line crossing the ball to Courtney Collins who found herself in a swarm of Mercy defenders. Jae Atkinson continued to make runs up the sideline in hopes of spurring some additional offense for the Comets. Physical play on the part of Mercy continued, but Morris, Leist and Collins were able to get shots off, none resulting in goals. Finally, with 13:00 left to play, Mason strung a series of passes together. Leist found Collins, Collins found Hoenicke, and Hoenicke carried the ball directly toward the goal as Mercy's keeper advanced and Hoenicke, with perfect timing slipped the ball past the keeper and into the net to put Mason up 1-0. As Mercy tried to battle back, Mason was able to hold on making the "Senior Day Celebration" a sweet victory for the Comets!


Sectional Championships

Mason (#4 seed)

vs. Winton Woods

@ Mason 7:00 pm

won 8-0 14-2-1 7-1-1 The Mason Lady Comets entered the tournament as the #4 seed with home field advantage against FAVC opponent Winton Woods. The Comets looked to dominate from the very start as Leist broke through within the first minute of play for an open break away, sending the shot wide of the far post. On an assist by Hoenicke, forward Courtney Collins fired a shot from the 20 yrd. line finding the back of the net in just the 2nd minute of play. Shortly afterwards, the Comets capitalized on a corner kick taken by Hailey Morris as the ball sailed through the hands of the Warrior keeper, deflecting off the far post and into the goal. On an assist by Courtney Hoenicke, defender Jae Atkinson carried the ball up the field taking a shot to make it a 3-0 game in just under 8 min. of play. Kim Connor relieved DeFrank in the goal at the 15 min. mark of the game, as several Comet substitutions were made. MacKenzie Money continued the Mason attack scoring the 4th goal for the Comets. Annie Beard contributed on defense from the stopper position replacing injured Heather Jung. Defender Skylar Chew moved to the midfield and quickly found herself open on a pass from Emily Crye. Chew took the left footed shot from about the 25 placing it in the goal for score number 5. The Comets continued the one-sided half with a 6th goal headed in by Matula on a corner kick by Morris.
The 2nd half was mostly uneventful as the Winton Woods Warriors were no match for the talented Comets who pulled back on their aggressive play. However, about 8 minutes into the 2nd half, midfielder Courtney Hackney passed to forward Matula, who's high shot slipping through the hands of the Warrior keeper and into the net. With an 8-0 lead and plenty of time left in the game, Coach Barnes used the time to work on possession as the Comets mostly played keep-a-way from the struggling Warriors.
With an 8-0 victory, Mason will return to Comet Stadium for round 2 of tournament play against Lakota East.

Sectional Championship

Mason vs. Lakota East (#12)

@Mason 7:00pm

won 1-0 OT 15-2-1 7-1-1

Comets Escape Against East

The Mason Comets got a close call against the Thunderhawks in 2nd round tournament action.  Usually when a #4 seed and #12 seed meet the outcome should be predicatable.  Not so with this battle as the first 80 minutes of regulation were played with neither team able to produce a goal.

The Comets came out firing in the 15 minute OT.  With approx. 4 mintues into overtime Mason's Courtney Collins took a pass from Kristen Leist and buried the ball into the back of the net.  Mason goalie Rachel Defrank kept the Hawks off the board getting the shutout.  The win gives the Comets a Sectional Championship.

Mason will advance to the District semis on Monday, 10/20 to face the #10 seed Lakota West.  The Firebirds defeated Oak Hills on Thursday in PK's.  Mason defeated West earlier this season 4-2.

The Mason/West game will be played at Princeton HS. starting at 7:00 pm.  Tickets will be available at the gate for $5...no passes will be honored.



District Semi-Finals

Mason vs. Lakota West

7:00 pm @ Princeton HS

won 3-1 16-2-1 7-1-1

Comets Get Tough Win to Advance to District Finals

The Comets enjoyed a regular season win against the Firebirds, but throw the records out at tournament time. 

The Firebirds had the upper hand in the first half with consistent corner kick scoring opportunities.  With 11:31 left in the first half West made one of those kicks work as the Comets could not clear a ball in front of the net scoring the games first goal. 

With the first half running out Mason scored their first goal with 32.6 seconds left. Annie Beard's assist to Megan Matula evened the game 1-1 going into the break.

Kristen Leist's tremendous run on the goal produced Mason's second goal 7 minutes into the second half (2-1).  The Comet defense picked up the pace from that point keeping the West scoring chances to a minimum. 

At 9:44 Mason's Courtney Collins scored the final goal of the match off an assist from Amy Lipton (3-1). 


District Championship

Mason vs. Centerville

@ Northmont 6:00 pm

lost 1-0 16-3-1 7-1-1

The Comets face the Dayton #1 seed and undefeated Centerville Elks (18-0-1) ranked #3 in the state.  The Elks enter the game with tourney wins against Sringfield, Northmont and Edgewood.  The Elks held a 26-0 scoring total in their three tournament wins.

The first 40 minutes of play both teams had scoring opportunities.  The Centerville defense matched the Comets efforts play by play.  Likewise on the Mason end, the Elks were stymied by some strong defensive effort.  Half-time score 0-0.

The 2nd half started as the first with both teams moving the ball up and down the field but unable to put a ball past the keeper. 

Centerville offensive pressure finally produced a goal with 4:48 left in the game on a ball that skipped along the backline, passing two Mason defenders and angling into the net off the far post.  The Comets attempt to score in the final minutes were unsuccessful.

Mason concludes the 2008 season as District runnerup with an outstanding 16-3-1 record and GMC Championship.
