We traveled to Waterville on Friday night and took on a pesky young group of Waterville boys that played very hard to the very end. Ultimately we came away with the victory behind the strong running of Spencer Ward who played in his first full game back since suffering an early injury in week one. Spencer finished with 256 yards on 16 carries and had 4 TD’s in the first 3 quarters of the game. Spencer also had a late 2nd quarter interception that resulted in a rushing TD with 13 seconds remaining in the half. Mason Walters was also, once again, a standout both offensively and defensively with 130 yards rushing on 11 attempts and a TD. He also had 5 solo, 6 first hits, 1 assist, and 2 batted passes. Our offensive line did a wonderful job on the night. It is led by Mason Cameron, Cody Amsden, Marcus Bernardo, Cole Beazley, Donny Vanderholm, and TE Ramiro Lopez, who posted his first receiving TD of the season.
We would like to thank all of the fans that made their way up to Waterville. Although we started a bit slow we finished very strong and I give the credit to the boys who have worked hard all season and their fans that have supported them throughout. Our next game will be on Octover 21, 2016 at home vs Liberty Bell for Senior Night.
Rain and cooler weather didn’t inhibit our Manson team this Saturday as many middle schoolers and high schoolers ran their best as they shouldered with bigger teams from Central and Western Washington. The entire 6th grade team placed in the top 10 in their perspective races and were awarded ribbons.
The high school boy’s teams had suffered some setbacks earlier in the week with some illnesses and grade issues, but recovery is close at hand and hoping to be in full strength by next week. Manson’s Libbey Ireland was our only varsity girl’s runner, taking on the challenges of the course, fearing none.
Next Friday, Manson travels to Oroville for the last league meet prior to post season.
