All good things come to those who wait.

For the Dickson Comets (4-5, 3-3), their wait to join the postseason party has officially come to an end as they clinched a playoff berth last week for the first time since 2005. 

At 7:30 p.m. tonight at the Field of Dreams in Comanche the Comets will look to carry some momentum into next week, as they take on the Indians in their final regular season game. 

Although the Comets lost last week to Lindsay 42-38 they were able to clinch the fourth and final District 2A-8 spot thanks to Comanche’s (2-7,1-5) loss against district leader Kingston.

It is not the way that Dickson coach Steve Day would have liked to make the playoffs, but he admitted it’s still special regardless. 

“We wanted to be able to win and get in the playoffs rather than lose and have other scenarios help us out,” he said. “It is nice to be in, but at the same time you want to play your way in. Not to say we had not already but it kind of had a different vibe to it.”

The Comets were in a shootout last week, scoring their third highest point total of the season last week (38) and lost. Offensively the team hadover 500 yards, but their defense struggled to stop the Leopards. The Leopards jumped to an early lead and raked up over 500 yards themselves.

Although the Comets can not move up or down in playoff seeding, Day said he’s aware of the importance of entering the playoffs on a high note.

“We gotta win and play well, good momentum and positive vibes headed into the playoffs,” he said. “You always want to feel good and feel fresh going into it.”

The Indians are hoping to end the season on a high note, after losing four straight and five of their last six. 

Their playoff dreams officially ended last week with their home loss to Kingston. 

Over their last three games, the defense is allowing 43 points per game, while scoring an average of just eight on offense.

The last time these two teams met was in 2015, when the Comets traveled to Comanche and came away with a blowout 45-13 victory.

Comanche last recorded a victory over Dickson during the 2014 season when the Indians won by a score of 46-12. 

Dickson will open the playoffs next Friday night on the road against the No. 1 Millwood Falcons in Oklahoma City.
