The Eagles jumped off to an early 14-0 start, but saw their season come to a close with the defeat. Comanche quarterback Jalin Conyers helped lead the Comanches to five touchdowns, passing for four and adding a one-yard rushing score. Wide receiver Nate Thompson collected three passes for 116 yards. All three receptions were for touchdowns.
