Battle of the Tribes: West Texas High and Quanah meet in Bi-District rematch

November 10, 2011

On Friday night, the West Texas High Comanches will square off against the Quanah Indians in the 1A Division I Bi-District round in Pampa.
Last year, the two teams met in the same round in Amarillo with Quanah pulling away late to get the win over the Comanches.
On paper, the match up between the Comanches and Indians appears to be a showcase of a contrast of styles. The Comanches have relied on their ground game all season to control the clock and wear down opponents, while the Indians will bring in a more balanced attack that has the ability to move the ball in the air.
