The Comanche Indians honored their seniors at home Friday and took a big 34-14 win over Tishomingo to earn the Xpress Wellness Team of the Week award.
The Comanche Indians had a big first half  as they scored the first of five touchdowns a few minutes after the first quarter began.
Running back Tucker Oliver, with 10:41 left to play in the first quarter, ran the ball in from 21 yards out to score the touchdown with the Indians attempting the two-point conversion and failing, putting the lead at 6-0.
A few minutes later, the Indians gained possession of the ball with quarterback Kooper Doucet running it in from 9 yards out for the score with 4:13 left to play in the first quarter.
Doucet converted the two-point conversion by passing it to Brady Dobbins, which made the lead 14-0 in favor of Comanche. Scores would continue into the second quarter.
Seven seconds into the second quarter, Doucet found Mason Kubleth for 13-yards through the air to make it 20-0 after a failed point afterkick was no good.
After two passing touchdowns in a row, the Indians went back to the ground game and Lake Epperson joined in on the scoring parade as he ran it in from 18-yards for the rushing touchdown.
On the ensuing two-point conversion, quarterback Doucet found Gage Allie to make it 28-0 with about two minutes left in the first half.
The Indians got possession back with less than a minute left and Doucet found his biggest gain of the night with a 70-yard passing touchdown to Bryson Evans with 53 seconds left in the half.
The two-point conversion was no good and at halftime, the Indians led 34-0. Tishomingo, however, scored two second-half touchdowns but the Indians held onto the victory and ended their losing streak.
Having over 300 yards of passing, Coach Casy Rowell said he is proud of his seniors and the team for having a big first half performance and taking the victory.
“It was a great night for our team and especially for our seniors,” he said. “We were able to secure enough of a lead during the first half that we were able to play everyone during that second half. That is our goal going into each game. The first team handled their business and gave our second team an opportunity. Overall, I was happy with our performance.”
Rowell said having seven different players contribute to the scores was fantastic. He also credited the defense and special teams for their good game.
“Defense has continued to make improvements each week. That is all we ask from them,” Rowell said. “Special teams is steadily making improvements too. These guys are being coachable and they are working hard.”
Comanche was supposed to have a road district game against Coalgate this Friday, but it canceled due to COVID-19 concerns with Coalgate.
Rowell said they have scheduled another game and will now play at 7 p.m. Oct. 30 on the road against Carnegie, who also had their opponent cancel due to COVID-19 concerns.
