Dublin wide receiver Jacob Stanley caught eight passes for 332 yards and four touchdowns, but it was not enough to lift the Lions over Comanche as the Indians rang up a 54-30 win on their home turf last night.
The Lions (7-2, 2-2) struggled against Comanche’s (6-3,4-0) Wing-T offense but kept the game close in the first half trailing 27-24 going into intermission. After halftime, the game belonged to the Indians who rushed for 590 yards averaging more than 10 yards per carry.
Dublin quarterback Cy Wing completed 17 of 27 passes for 469 yards and four touchdowns, but the Lions could not get their ground game going rushing for only 68 yards and no scores on the ground.
Stanley caught three touchdowns before halftime of 76, 62 and 48 yards, and had a 90-yard touchdown reception in the second half.
Two teams combined for more than 1,100 yards of offense with the majority of the Indians offense coming on the ground as they completed only one pass for 43 yards.
The loss drops Dublin third place in district play behind Comanche and Jacksboro. The Lions take on Millsap Friday and a will in will assure them of third-place playoff berth.
