Metal of Muscle Invitational Day 1

By The Herd, 12/05/14, 9:15PM CST


Both Stampede Squads remain unbeaten

The Stampede took 16 players to Houston today to compete in the Metal of Muscle Invitational held at the George R Brown Convention Center. The two teams - “Orange” and “White” fielded 8 members respectfully, that gave both squads multiple lines to work with.


The Orange team started the day against Heartland hopeful Lakeshore Demolition.  The Stampede played a tight game going back and forth with the Demolition but eventually the Orange wins a thriller 47-46.  Game 2 for  the Orange side saw the Stampede match up against an Atlantic squad – the New York Strykers.  The match was a great game for some of the youth on the team and saw Texas come away with a 56-44 victory.  The last match of the day was against 2013 D2 runner up and MoM host Houston.  In a carryover from last week’s Texas Cup, the Orange side used the benefits of tendencies learned last week that Houston used and applied it to a 50-33 win.


The White team began their day against #2 seed Tampa Generals. The team which boasted newcomers and veterans jumped to a small lead that built to a 4 point lead.  The Stampede withstood a late charge by the Generals and wins 46-41. Game 2 saw the White go head to head with in state rival North Texas Cowboys.  The game proved to be another opportunity for the youth of the team to step up.  The Stampede answered the bell and defeat North Texas 56-44.  The night cap on Friday saw Texas square off against up and coming Brooks Bandits.  Texas wasted no time and left nothing to chance as they hit the Bandits quickly with solid play and a tough defense.  Texas White overmatches Brooks 62-35.


“It was a great start for both squads” said assistant coach Norm Lyduch.  Both teams will resume action Saturday.  A schedule is available at For more information on the Stampede go to
