COMANCHE — Friday nights matchup between Lindsay and Comanche at Harley Stadium was supposed to be an offensive show.

Unfortunately, the Indians didn’t receive that memo.

It was the Leopards instead putting up the fireworks, as they scored 42 first half points, handing Comanche a lopsided 48-8 loss.

“We knew coming in that Lindsay was a good opponent,” Comanche assistant coach Keith Burton said. “I just think we weren’t ready to play. Our guys we out of sync offensively and defensively. We just weren’t mentally ready to play and when we did get into the game it was too late.”

Kale Reed had the only touchdown of the evening for Comanche in the third quarter, followed by a completed pass to Hunter Rice for the two-point conversion.

With the loss, Comanche falls to 4-2 overall and 2-1 in district, while Lindsay improves to 4-2, 2-1.

CHS is on the road Friday at Washington with kickoff set for 7:30 p.m.

“We’ve got some crucial games coming up and we need to regroup and fix some things. After coming off a loss, this is a big game for us against Washington. It’s a tough place to play and we’re going to need to play four quarters in order to get a victory.”
