Purcell closed the book on the 2022 gridiron season with a 35-0 victory at Conger Field over Comanche last Thursday night.

Knowles got the scoring started bursting for a 50 yard touchdown run in the opening quarter. Galyean followed suit in the second period with a one-yard plunge.
Kash Guthmueller’s pick six in the second quarter closed out the Dragon scoring.
“Brody played a really good game,” head coach Tracy Scott said. “And, really, everyone on the offensive side of the ball played well. Boston had a pretty good night. Kash had a big interception and Jett Tyler had a touchdown reception.”
On the defensive side of the ball, Payson Purcell led the way with 14 tackles. Jake Scott had an interception that set up a touchdown drive as well.
The coach praised the play of Ryker Fink, Luke and Adam Edelman and Brody Holder.
Fink finished with 11 tackles while Luke had seven. Adam had three stops.
“Brody led the way up front with seven tackles,” the coach said.
“I was proud of the way we came out and jumped on them early. We put them away in the first half and then began subbing in the second half.
“I was glad we were able to finish on Conger Field with a win. That’s going out in the right way,” Scott said.
The Dragons finished the season 5-5.
