Shiner dominated the Luling Eagles Thursday evening in the second and final scrimmage, 5-0.

“Very impressed. We got a lot more in at this stage than I thought we would,” Shiner head coach Steven Cerny said. “We still have to get in better shape and conditioning. Overall, a great effort and everyone pitched in.”

The Comanches scored three times in the controlled scrimmage, once by the first team and twice by the second team.

Shiner put the ball in the end zone twice during the live quarters.

The Eagles were able to pop a couple of big plays but were unable to get in the end zone as the Comanches’ defense was extremely intense.

“Our defense was very solid. We gave up a few big plays, nothing major,” he said. “Our front line dominated the line of scrimmage and the secondary did well. We shut Luling down and got a zero on the board.”

The Comanches had a gigantic number of offensive yards as they ran some of the newer things to complement their traditional veer attack.

“We were putting in a lot of different things and missed some assignments,” Cerny said. “We tell them, even if you go wrong, go hard and something good could still happen.”

“Good overall effort.”

In the controlled scrimmage, the Comanches had about 22 carries for 207 yards and were 1- for-4 passing for 34 yards.

In the quarters, Shiner ran 22 times for 279 yards and was 1-for-4 for 17 yards throwing.

For the whole scrimmage, Shiner ran around 52 plays for 537 yards; 44 carries for 486 yards and was 2-for-8 passing for 51 yards.

In the controlled part, Shiner had touchdown rushes of 5, 31 and 19 yards; in the live quarters, Shiner ripped off a 70-yard dash and had 14- yard touchdown run.
