Comets Work to Improve Solid Foundation at Mangum

Body
MANGUM - The Hinton Comets headed into Mangum with spirts high after beating Hennessey Sept. 4, hoping to do the same against an undefeated Mangum on Sept. 11. The Comets, coming off the 1 point win were looking to continue to improve and build on a solid foundation in which the Comets D held their opponent to just 3 possessions in the first half and rushed for over 300 yards. The Tigers were coming off their first victory as well, beating Merritt 40-11 at home. The home field advantage has been very good to the Tigers as they have not lost a game at the Liberty Bowl in the last nine games played there.
