Comstock Park and Allendale, two OK Blue foes, met on Friday night in Comstock Park in a game that started slow, but ended in a full-blown shootout. The Falcons offense proved too strong as they earned their first conference win in a 53-46 victory.

In the game’s first quarter, each team exchanged big rushing plays for touchdowns. Comstock’s Jo Jo Whitley burst through the line for an 82 yard run to start the scoring, and then Drew Courtier got Allendale on the board with a 45 yard run of his own.

There were 37 points scored between the two teams in the second quarter. Comstock Park’s Dylan Bazon scored a pair of touchdowns to lead the offensive charge, and Drew Courtier added his second touchdown of the half on another long run, this time from 82 yards out. Comstock Park led 26-22 at the half.

The scoring slowed down in the third quarter as there was just eighteen total points. Allendale got a field goal, then a touchdown paired with a two point conversion as a result of Courtier’s third touchdown. Whitey scored Comstock’s lone touchdown in the third quarter on his second run of 80+ yards. After three, the game was tied at 33.

The fourth quarter saw 33 points put up on the board between the two teams. Twice Allendale scored, only to have Comstock Park respond with touchdowns of their own. With just under five minutes to play, Allendale got the last laugh as Hunter Greer found himself in the end zone, putting the Falcons up 53-46.

With the win, Allendale improves to 2-2 on the season, and 1-1 in league play, while Comstock Park drops to the same 2-2 record with a 1-1 league mark. Next week, Allendale takes on Sparta while the Panthers will take on Unity Christian.
