Shiner not over looking former state semifinalist Timpson

The state semifinal game will be played in Tomball ISD at 7:00 p.m. Thursday

SHINER, Texas — After the Shiner and Refugio game, the Comanches are in the driver seat to win back-to-back state titles in class 2A-DI.

The Comanches will now prepare for the same team they met in the state semifinals last year, the Timpson Bears. Last year, Shiner controlled the whole game and went on to win 49-7 against Timpson. This year, head coach Daniel Boedeker says last year they did not know a lot about the Bears, and this year they do. He went on to say that Timpson is better than they were last year.

They have 18 seniors this year, two on offense and four on defense that are gone now. So lots of returners back, said Boedeker. We can see on film that they are a lot better so we are going to have to be prepared and play one of our best games.

Coach Boedeker explained there are a few of his athletes are banged up after the Refugio game, but everyone should be active for Thursday night. He and the team know this is the biggest game, but the goal has always been a state title.

It’s a big accomplishment to get to [the state title game.]  It’s a long road, and our kids set a goal back in August and it’s been a grind to get to this point, said Boedeker. We have been really focused in on this week to give us the best chance to get [to state.]

The state semifinal game will be played in Tomball ISD at 7:00 p.m. Thursday. Winner moves on to the state title game in AT&T Stadium Dec. 15th 7:00 p.m.
