Bombers blitz Comanche

COMANCHE — Perhaps it was symbolic the Frederick Bombers had a lightning bolt engraved on their pants Friday night.

Because they struck in a flash before Comanche could even react.

A 27-point first quarter blitz was followed by a 26-point second quarter onslaught, which ultimately resulted in the Bombers claiming the district 2A-3 title in resounding fashion, 53-0 over the Indians.

“They’re (Frederick) are just so fast everywhere, and dang their big and strong,” Comanche coach Steve Justus said. “They will capitalize on anything that you do. If the ball stays in the air a little longer, they will be right down there waiting on you. We lost to a very confident and well-coached team.”

As if the Indians weren’t reeling enough from Frederick in the second quarter, the Bombers made sure to put an exclamation point on the game.

Just 20 seconds after making it a 47-0 contest, FHS swarmed Comanche on the ensuing kickoff, resulting in a fumble which led to a scoop and score from Colton Mitchell, making it a 53-0 game with 3:45 left in the quarter.

But, things had been going bad long before Mitchell found his way into the endzone.

It only took 21 seconds for Trey Booker to run 85-yards on the opening kickoff to give the Bombers a 7-0 lead. A little over two minutes later it was 14-0 after quarterback Trevor Flores found Grant Hoover for a nine yard touchdown pass at the 9:23 mark.

Try as they might, the Indians couldn’t break down the iron clad Bombers defense, which kept CHS from getting a first down until the third quarter.

Jessie Webb made it 21-0 with a three yard touchdown run at the 4:52 mark, before it was 27-0 thanks to Booker’s second touchdown of the evening, this time on an 18-yard rush with 2:32 left in the first.

“We were talking before the game about how they (Frederick) have such great closing speed,” Justus said. “Things can look like they are open, and before the play can develop they are right there in front of you blocking it.”

Ironically enough, the second quarter started just as bad as the first did for the Indians.

On the first play from scrimmage, CHS fumbled the ball on its own 15-yard line, where the Bombers were able to recover on the 5-yard line.

One play later, Blake Cotten cashed in making it 33-0.

With 7:58 left before halftime, Booker got his third touchdown of the evening, this time from 2 yards out, before making it four on the evening at the 4:05 mark.

With the loss Comanche drops to 4-5 overall and 2-4 in district play. Frederick stays unbeaten at 9-0 and 6-0 in districts.

Despite suffering defeat though, the Indians still have a chance to sneak into the playoffs.

In order for hope to remain alive, CHS will have to defeat Hinton next Friday night at Harley Stadium in Comanche, and hope for other scenarios to go in its favor.

“If we can come out and get a win by more than 15, we have a chance,” Justus said. “Our problem has been we’ve had some tough injuries throughout the season. Sometimes you don’t win the battle, but you get the chance to win the war. We’re going to look past this loss and focus on living to fight another day.”

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
