Comanche head coach Steve Justus said he and his team felt that they should have one their 22-20 loss at Hobart Friday night.
“We had some opportunities that we had to score, but made some mistakes and couldn’t capitalize,” Justus said. “We really felt like we should have one and that the only people who really stopped us were us.”
While the Indians were unable to pick up the win Friday night, Justus said he was proud of the way his team in the second half.
“I believe they only had 14 snaps in the second half,” Justus said. “We had some kids who really stepped up and took control making big plays.”
Some of those key players were quarterback Johnny Heath and running back Garrison McCauley. Heath completed 12 of his 20 passes for 179 yards, while McCauley had 18 carries for 129 yards. Justus gave credit to his offensive line for some of those numbers.
“Our offensive line did a good job holding their blocks,” Justus said. “Johnny had a good night throwing the ball and Garrison had another good game of running the ball.
“It was good effort by everyone, we just couldn’t come out with a win.”
Comanche had 22 first downs compared to Hobart’s 17 and in close game by both offenses Hobart finished with 373 total yards, while Comanche finished with 370.
The Indians will look to put Friday’s loss behind them as they prepare for Frederick on Thursday. Thursday night’s game is a game that Justus said he is looking forward to.
“There are some teams in the district that are tough teams and Frederick is one of those teams,” Justus said. “We just have to play how we know how to play and get ready.”
