The curtain came down on the Comfort football season Friday night after the Bobcats were eliminated from the playoffs by Rogers in Buda.
The Eagles soared to a 58-27 win to advance to the third round.
The Bobcats were coming off a big win last week against Taft where they scored 67 points. But Rogers held Comfort’s explosive offense in check.
Friday’s game was tied twice in the first quarter but Rogers started to pull away after that.
The Eagles jumped out to a 7-0 lead just 54 seconds into the contest on a 33-yard TD pass, but Comfort tied it up on a Topper Sterling 3-yard sprint to make it 7-7.
Rogers scored again on a short run and the lead was 15-7 with 6:18 left in the first. But once again, the Bobcats knotted it up, this time at 15-15 after Landon Aguirre punched it in on a 1-yard run with 3:58 on the clock.
Rogers broke the tie and pulled ahead for good at 22-15 on a 30-yard run and the game was still in the first quarter, and the game was never tied again.
In the second quarter, Rogers added a field goal and a rushing touchdown to push the lead to 32-15 by halftime.
The Eagles really opened it up in the third, tacking on two more rushing TDs to break it open at 44-15.
Both teams tallied two touchdowns apiece in the fourth quarter as they traded scores.
Aguirre added his second touchdown run on the night for the Bobcats, while Mason West had the final score of the game after the Comfort running back scrambled in from the 12-yard line.
Comfort’s talented running back Topper Sterling left the game with an injury in the second half. Sterling entered the game with 1,873 rushing yards.
The Bobcats end their year at 6-6 under first-year coach Jay Rieken, while Rogers advances to the third round and improves to 9-3.
