Strasburg too much for Mason

Hart to Kloosterman is the story
Posted 2018-10-18 By LARRY BEAZLEY

   Strasburg left no doubt that it is a Bull Run District championship contender Friday night.

   The Rams scored 21 unanswered first period points and cruised to a 33-7 win over George Mason before a cheering hometown crowd.

   Most of it came on the throwing arm of Rams’ quarterback Chase Hart who teamed with favorite receiver Stephen Kloosterman for two touchdowns early.

   Hart found Kloosterman open in the first period at the 53 yard line to put the Rams up 7-0 after Trevor Sager’s PAT.

   Soon thereafter, Strasburg running back Jalen Bray burst through the Mason defense to score from the 10. Sager again converted.

   It was Hart to Kloosterman late in the initial period from 67 yards that sealed the deal. The Rams were up 21-0 and the Mustangs would not recover.

   Strasburg scored again in the third period on a seven yard run by Bray, but the PAT missed the mark.

   In the third quarter, Sager scored from seven yards out on a pass from Hart, but the running attempt for the PAT failed.

   Mason scored its only TD of the night in the final period on a 24-yard pass from quarterback Evan Rice to Matthew Teague. Calvin Weber booted the PAT.

   Bray carried 15 times for the Rams and gained 118 yards. Hart completed seven of seven passes for 156 yards and three touchdowns, two to Kloosterman and one to Sager. Kloosterman had three catches and 178 yards.
