The Shiner Comanches were very eager to play the final 2019 regular-season home game with plenty of passion, energy and gratitude for the fans.

Shiner checked all three with a 52-7 win over Kenedy Lions Friday night at Comanches Stadium for Senior Night.
“It was a great performance by our kids,” Comanches head coach Daniel Boedeker said. “They had a lot of energy coming out for this game knowing this would be the last home game; a special night for the seniors regardless of the outcome.”
The Comanches put a great performance for the home crowd one last time, raising their season record to 9-0 and 3-0 in district play.
“Overall, it was a special day for the whole group,” he said. “We told them to appreciate the fans, their parents, people that support them and play for all those people. They did a good job and I know those people are very proud of our boys just like the coaches are proud of them.”
Shiner is off this week and is at Wallis Brazos next week to end the regular season.
“We’ll go back and look at things we are trying to clean up completely. We will also work on fundamental things. We will go back to work in off-week practice and try to get better at some things,” Boedeker said.
Shiner took the opening kickoff to their 45 and ran three times for a net of 9 yards to face 4th-and-1 at the Lions 46. Donyai Taylor had a short 2-yard rush to convert and two plays later, Tyler Palmer went to Cole Patek for a 33-yard touchdown pass for a 7-0 Shiner lead with 9:16 left in the quarter.
On Kenedy’s first play from scrimmage, they had a short 2-yard gain before fumbling the ball. Taylor recovered it at the Lion 27 and ran it for a touchdown to give the Comanches a 14-0 lead at the 9:04 mark of the first frame.
Kenedy’s second drive did not go a whole lot better as they gained a net 7 yards and had a 6- yard punt from their 30 to their 36.
Palmer had a short gain to the 32 and Taylor scored on the next play for a 21-0 Comanche advantage.
The next Kenedy possession resulted in a short punt but the visitors got the ball back quickly by intercepting Palmer. The following drive stalled and the Lions punted 20 yards to their 40.
Shiner scored on a 40-yard run by Doug Brooks but a bad snap on the extra point led to a failed two-point run for a 27-0 Shiner lead with 1:28 left in the first quarter.
Kenedy had a 35-yard punt on its next drive and Shiner returned the kick to the Lion 45. On second down from the 42, Taylor took an inside handoff, was stopped by the Lions and before he was brought down, made a rather drastic play by lateratling the ball to an open Brooks who took it down to the 20 and scored on the next play, and the extra point was missed, leaving Shiner ahead 33-0.
Dalton Brooks intercepted a Kenedy pass on the next drive at the Shiner 20 and on the first play after the turnover, gained 30 on a jet sweep to midfield. A penalty pushed Shiner back to its 35 and then
Dalton Brooks gained 30 again on a jet sweep, followed by an option keeper for 35 yards by Palmer for a 40-0 Shiner lead. Jacquis Miller picked up Shiner’s second interception of the game. Two false starts moved Shiner back to the Kenedy 38. Devin Lehnert then took a direct snap down to the 3 and scored on a quarterback sneak on the next play for a 46-0 Shiner lead, the final score of the first half.
Following the second half kickoff, the time went to a running clock. Kenedy got a first down and moved the ball past the 50 but found itself with fourth down at Shiner 49 and failed to convert.
The Comanches then used most of the remaining time in the quarter with runs by Devondrick Mathis and Noah Nevlud. Quarterback Cash Shows capped the drive with a 7-yard run; Shiner was unable to convert the two-point play and led 52-0.
Kenedy ended the shutout in the fourth quarter with a nine-play, 75-yard drive that was concluded on a 42-yard run by Kyler Ramos with 4:15 left to play.
