COMANCHE— The Comanche Indians got their season off to a good start Tuesday night, handling Frederick 73-42. Jacob Dunlap led the way with 28 points. Dunlap had three 3-point shots as Clayton Bennett poured in 14 points and Josh Peevy had 13 to help lead the way.

“We played really good for it being our first game,” head coach Kenny Weast said. “We didn’t have the jitters like I thought we might and really got after it. Frederick is young but it was certainly a good team to open up against.”
