Just because the Shiner football team had its first-round bye clinched doesnít mean the Comanches didnít have anything to play for Friday night.
There was the opportunity to finish unbeaten in District 15-A-Division I as well as Parentsí Night and the seniorsí final home game. All of those reasons translated into Shiner (9-1, 4-0 in 15-A-DI) finishing the regular season with a 42-0 rout of Yorktown Friday at Comanche Stadium in Shiner.
The Comanches limited the Wildcats to 127 yards of total offense -- all rushing -- and just eight first downs. The districtís leading rusher, Derek Franke, gained just 70 yards on 17 carries.
Evel Jones got the train rolling for Shiner with a pair of first-quarter touchdown runs. His scoring runs of 3 and 54 yards gave the Comanches a 12-0 lead after one quarter of play.
Jacob Stafford scored on a 66-yard run and Jones tacked on the two-point conversion to increase the Shiner lead to 20-0 at the 7:57 mark of the second quarter. Trevion Flowers then hit Caleb Curtis for a 30-yard score to increase the lead to 27-0 with 24 seconds remaining before halftime.
Flowers accounted for both of Shinerís third-quarter scores as well. He scored on a 19-yard run and hit Jones for a 40-yard touchdown to cap the scoring.
Jones led all rushers with 137 yards on seven carries and all receivers with two catches for 46 yards. Flowers completed 4-of-7 passes for 84 yards and ran nine times for 65 yards.
The Comanches receive a bye in the bi-district round of the Class A-DI state playoffs, and will face the Ozona-Holland winner in the area round Nov. 23 or 24.
