The high winds and distant storms didnâ€™t scare the Sanford-Fritch Eagles when they arrived at Highland Park Stadium.
The Eagles knew this would be a game they felt confident with and put up big stats for key players.
The first Eaglesâ€™ touchdown came rather quickly, for none other, than junior running back Colton Valle.
The offense pound the ball on the ground before Valle finally got a break for a 28 yard touchdown.
The West Texas Comanches opened up District play Friday night in Stinnett with a 21-6 win over the Rough Riders from Boys Ranch. The win sets up a big showdown next week in Canadian, who lost in double over time to Sunray. Every team in the District was ranked in the top 25 in Class A Friday, in what is arguably the toughest 1A District in the state. The Comanches need to cut out the penalties and turnovers to stay competitive within the District, and that is definitely doable.
