HOBART — If there was ever a situation which could be labeled as “must-win” it would have been Thursday night for the Comanche Indians. Locked in a battle for the last two playoff spots, CHS hit the road to take on Hobart, one of the teams its tied with. Unfortunately, the Bearcats now hold the upper hand when it comes to the postseason. Despite touchdowns from Kale Reed and Alex Tuttle, the Indians couldn’t get over the hump as they fell 35-14. “Our kids never gave up,” Comanche coach Steve Justus said. “We fought and battled out there despite all the injuries we had. Giving Hobart a short field didn’t help our cause. We did some good things tonight, but it just didn’t go our way.” A costly fumble on the Hobart 20 yard line by Comanche gave the Bearcats just the opening they needed to take advantage over the Indians at 21-14. Late in the fourth, the Indians had a chance to cut the lead to 28-21, but turnovers reared their ugly head again and the Bearcats slammed the door shut from there. With the loss Comanche falls to 4-4, 2-3 in district play. Hobart improves to 5-3, 3-2 in district play.
