       Brien Stadium was packed with Comanche fans decked out in blue to cheer on the varsity football team Saturday afternoon.  The Comanches sent the Carbondale Terriers packing with a score of 33-0 and a second post season win.  Cahokia will go on to face Hillcrest Saturday in Chicago.

       Interceptions and sacks were key parts of the Comanche’s dominance.  According to Comanche Head Coach John Clay, the team intercepted the ball five times and sacked the Carbondale quarterback eight times.  Senior defensive end Shamon Hudson caught one interception.  Hudson said, “Get mean on the green,” when asked about his mindset Saturday.

       Wide receiver LeVauntez Conway also made big plays.  He connected with quarterback Malik Shaw for a 74 yard touchdown.  “Big time players make big time plays,” bragged Conway as he grinned remembering the big play.

       Senior Delarius Rogers also intercepted the ball and ran 30 yards to score, and Darian “Deno” Dean made three interceptions and returned one for 87 yards!

       Coach Clay felt the team made few mistakes Saturday.  “They played with focus.  They played physical, and they played like they wanted to win. Those are the three things you need to win,” Clay said. 

       Senior Zachariah Al-Khamoas is also proud of the progress the team has made.  “We turned around from 3-6 to 10-1.  We came from nothing to champion contenders,” he said.

       Monday morning, Mr. Fred Dancy and others decorated the halls of CHS with blue and white streamers and balloons bearing the numbers of football players.  Full size color photos of varsity football players and homemade posters lined the main hall.  The students and staff are proud of the team’s performance.  Go Comanches!
