Six minutes later, Daniel Salazar recovered a Comanche fumble in the end zone for six points.
Mason McCorkle added a touchdown for Shiner with 1:35 left in the game for a 46-13 final.

The Comanches amassed a total of 415 rushing yards, averaging almost 10 yards per carry. Pustka was 2-4 in the passing department completing tosses to Casey Coleman and Steven Evans.
