SAN ANTONIO - The No. 1-ranked Shiner Comanches overwhelmed the Charlotte Trojans 37-7 in a Class 1A area playoff game thanks to 164 rushing yards and four touchdowns from Chris Baer.

The Comanches (12-0) jumped out to an early lead when Dustin Pohler blocked a Charlotte punt and Shiner recovered in good field position. Baer scored on a 3-yard run, and Scott Shimek added the first of five extra points for a 7-0 advantage.

Charlotte (7-4) answered four minutes later, however, when quarterback John Mark Henry hooked up with Matthew Caballero for a 52-yard touchdown pass. Henry nailed the point after to tie the game 7-7.

Shiner gained back the momentum with 3 seconds left in the first half. Trey Curtis dropped back to pass and flipped the ball behind him before being taken down. Baer grabbed it and scampered into the end zone for a score to give the Comanches a 14-7 halftime lead.

It was all Shiner in the second half as Dustin Mayberry scored on a 3- yard run, Charlotte gave up a safety on a bad punt snap, and Baer scored twice on matching 23-yard runs. Mayberry rushed for 42 yards on 16 carries.

Henry threw for 125 yards for the Trojans, but he was picked twice by Shiner's Kevin Berger.

Shiner advances to face the winner of Friday night's playoff game between Chilton and Harper.
