Things don’t get any easier for the Dickson Comets on Friday night as they travel to Purcell.


Things don’t get any easier for the Dickson Comets on Friday night as they travel to Purcell.

Dickson (1-6, 0-3 District 3A-2) will be looking to rebound from a 36-0 loss to Norman JV.

Purcell (5-2, 2-2) isc oming off a 42-24 win over Pauls Valley, and a win would solidify third place in the district standings.

The Dragons were flying high early in the season as they got out to a 4-0 start. But they lost star quarterback Cole Swayze, and two straight losses to Madill and Plainview followed.

But make no mistake about it, Purcell was no one-man team.
Running back Damien Shea has stepped up in Swayze’s absence, rushing for 905 yards and seven touchdowns.

Cedric Polk, Dylan Wilson and Michael Hazer are all quality backs that are capable of taking it the distance at any time.

 And each week equals more experience for quarterback Hunter Marcum, who shook off rough starts against Madill and Plainview.

Marcum threw for over 200 yards in last weeks win over the Panthers.

Dickson has struggled with inexperience as much as anything, with only two seniors seeing action on the field.

The Comets had four players missing on the offensive line in last week’s non-district loss.

The Comets end their season with games against Lone Grove and Sulphur, while Purcell finishes with Mustang JV and Lone Grove.
