Homecoming at Entiat Tigerís field. Trojanís received the kickoff and marched to the Tigerís twenty- eight yard line where they gave it over on downs. Entiat found the end-zone first on a 13 yard run by quarterback, Thomas Sanford, PAT was good by Alex Delgado. The TD was set up on a 34 yard pass from Sanford to fullback Garrett Kamphaus.
Manson answered back on the final play of the first quarter, on a ten yard run by Javier Guillen, PAT was blocked.
Entiat Ďs Sanford found the end again with 7 minutes remaining in the first half, on a ten yard run. PAT sailed wide-right. Half time score Entiat 13 Ė Manson 6
Manson scored with 8 minutes remaining in the third quarter on a two yard run by Guillen. Carlos Pinedaís PAT was good. Game knotted at 13 all.
Kansas City Tie Breaker: each team has a shot from the 25 yard line. One timeout for each over time period. First two overtimes start at the 25 yard line, and then the third begins at the ten.
Neither team scored it the first OT, Manson chooses to defend first and shut down the Tigerís in the second OT. On fourth and 3, Pineda punched a 35 yard field goal dead center, he had 10 yards to spare. Kent Ustanik made a great hold and the line held tough. Game over.
Jordan Pittman ran like a man possessed, despite having a bad ankle. Pittman had 16 carries for 77 yards and 1 reception for 11. Javier Guillen rushed 25 times for 150 yards and had two receptions for 13 yards.
Passing stats: Nate Coggins was 8 for 18 with 65 yards. Carlos Pineda had 2 catches for 27 yards, Ustanik 1 for 7 and the highlight reel catch of the night was a 13 yard slant pass to Paul Toolson. Paul had jump as high as his 5-7 body could take him. That was a big play that got us a much needed first down, on our first scoring drive.
Defense played very well for the second week in a row, shutting out opponents in the second half. Ustanik had two key interceptions and Guillen, Marcus Vanderholm, Alex Vanderholm and Casey Sorensen made great contributions. On Special Teams play, James Hacker made a super solo tackle for the kickoff team.
Looking ahead: Manson hosts Brewster this Friday, kickoff 7pm.
Brewster is well coached and runs the spread option very well. They have great all around speed and are fierce competitors.
Thanks to all the fans that traveled to Entiat, it sounded like we were the home team. Bring it again on Friday. Coach Barnes
