Kingston Downs Comanche to Continue District Domination

By Michael Haggerty


Last Wednesday, Mother Nature dumped another batch of rain on the already-saturated soils of Oklahoma. Friday night, the Kingston Redskins traveled to Comanche to face the Indians on a field that resembled an enormous, dimly-lit quagmire by the end of the contest. Undeterred by either the mud or the darkness, the Redskins lit up the scoreboard in their ongoing quest for a District crown and blew out Comanche 50-12. Comanche’s spread offense turned out to be no match for Kingston’s tenacious defense. Comanche’s first drive ended with a thud when a third-down pitch to junior Noah Henderson was blown up in the backfield by Kingston sophomore linebacker,

Bryant Watts, for a 12-yard loss. Following the Comanche punt, Kingston’s offense went to work. Senior running back, Braden McGehee, back in action following his absence from the game against Dickson, took a third-down pitch 35 yards to the Indian 7. He then scored from seven yards out the following play to give the Redskins an early 7-0 lead. Comanche followed up with another threeand- out. After the ensuing punt, Kingston put the ball in the hands of senior running back, Garrett Voyles, who needed only one play to cover the 65 yards to pay dirt again. A run by senior quarterback, Rylee Holmes, out of the swinging gate formation gave Kingston two more points on the conversion, and the lead was 15-0, Kingston.
