Injured Indians tripped up at Washington

DUNCAN — Already riddled by injuries this season, the Comanche Indians’ bad luck continued Friday night.

Senior quarterback Kale Reed, the focal point of Comanche’s offense, took a hit to the shoulder that ended his night in the second quarter and ended any chance of an Indian come back as they fell at Washington, 41-20.

“We were really pleased with the way we came out against Washington,” Comanche assistant coach Keith Burton said. “It was a close game early, then they got a big play before halftime to make it 20-6. Losing Kale hurt because we know what he means to the team. He’s a team leader and that definitely had an effect on us.”

The Indians (4-3, 2-2 district) were looking to move closer to clenching a playoff spot, but instead made the road much more difficult coming into the final three weeks.

Behind a balanced attack, Washington (4-3, 3-1) built a 6-0 lead in the first quarter and went up 20-6 by halftime.

Reed, who rushed for 96 yards and threw for 34 in the first half, kept the Indians in the game with a 34-yard scamper for a touchdown in the second quarter before exiting the game.

“Everything with the shoulder is in tact as far as I know,” Burton said about Reed’s injury. “It’ll be a day-to-day thing. We don’t know if he’ll be ready, especially with the short week. We’ll keep an eye on him and if he’s ready to play Thursday then he’ll play.”

 With Reed out, Washington slammed the door in the third quarter running in one touchdown and recording a pick-six to widen the gap to 34-6.

Comanche will be taking on Hobart on the road Thursday night at 7:30 p.m.

“It’s a short week and that’s always a challenge,” Burton said. “We also lost Clayton Fennell which presents us with more challenges. We’re in a battle for a playoff spot with Hobart and Hinton, and we each play one another these last couple of weeks. Our kids know what they need to do, and hopefully they’ll come out and do it.”

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.
