While the Davis Wolves might currently be out of the playoff picture, this might not be the case for long.

At 7:30 p.m. Thursday night at Wolf Field, Davis will welcome Comanche to town, where a victory could kickstart the Wolves hunt for a return to the playoffs.

Comanche enters the game with an overall record of 5-1 along with a district record of 3-0, while the Wolves are 1-5 on the season and 1-2 in district play. 

“Comanche is 5-1 for a reason and they are playing with a lot of confidence right now,” Davis coach Greg Parker said. “They are really skilled and have put up big numbers on offense the last few weeks.”

“Our schedule during the Fall Break week definitely changes as opposed to a normal week,” Parker added. “I would venture to guess that most coaches don’t like the short week, but both teams are in the same boat with the amount of time they have to prepare. I feel like it shouldn’t be an issue for us.”

Last week the Wolves broke free from their hard luck start to district play as they earned a 35-7 victory over the Dickson Comets on the road. 

Comanche meanwhile had a high-scoring contest at home against Tishomingo, winning by a score of 50-30. 

Last season when these two teams met in Comanche it was the Wolves coming away with a 38-6 victory over the Indians.
