The Shiner Comanches (2-1) did what they did best in a 27-24 win over the ‘Horns last week. Run the football.
But the thing Shiner did really well was they were in better shape.
"We were more physical," head coach Steven Cerny said. "I think our kids’ hard work paid off."
Shiner’s defense also had a good day.
"I am happy we stopped the run. We gave up two long pass plays and we have to fix that but overall we did well."
The Comanches will hit the road in a 7:30 p.m. game at Universal City-Randolph on Friday.
The Ro-Hawks are 1-2 but better than their record indicates.
"They are very athletic," Cerny said. They just have been plagued with mistakes."
Randolph has a run-oriented offense ran out of the Wing-T and Slot-T. Running back Alonzo Barclift has 24 rushes for 173 yards and one touchdown while Leo Blount, Damiani Phillips and Christian Hosley have one rushing touchdown each.
"We have to play assignment football," Cerny said. "You chase a ghost and they end up breaking a big run. We also have to watch for play fakes."
Randolph’s defense plays very aggressively.
"Our offense has to control the line of scrimmage and we need to pick up the blitz from their linebackers," Cerny said. "We have to stay with what their defense gives our veer offense."
