As ridiculous as it sounds, GCC really appeared to do everything in its power to keep the score down. Manchester doesn't tackle well, to put it mildly.

 

GCC's starting tailback touched the ball 10 times and scored on 6 of them. Starting QB threw 8 passes and four went for TDs. They had pretty much called off the dogs in the early second quarter but couldn't help getting return TDs or handing it off to 3rd, 4th, 5th sting RBs up the middle and having them break away for touchdowns. At one point before the half, the fullback breaks what would have been a 50 yard TD but runs out of bounds. Gets called back due to holding, they run the same play again, the kid breaks it again for what would have been a 70 yard TD, runs out of bounds again and they kneel to run out the half. Based on their play calling, I think they were determined not to score in the fourth quarter, but how are you going to tell a kid who never gets to play not to retrun a pick 90 yards if he has the chance? They just kneeled on the PAT.

 

To Manchester's credit, with only 19 healthy kids and no seniors, they have a few decent players on offense and usually get their share of points. Yesterday's first half was kind of a perfect storm in that their defense is never going to stop anybody but the O turned it over a bunch of times to make it worse.

So they would have broken 100 if it wasnt for this? Nicew sportsmanship by kneeling on the PATs. Good luck Manchester and Grove City the rest of the way.
