The Manson Trojan Football Team earned their first victory of the season on Friday, September 26th- beating the Liberty Bell Mountain Lions 46-35.
The game proved to be a real battle for the first three quarters with the game tied at 20-20 going into halftime, before Manson was able to pull ahead in the fourth quarter to take a two touchdown lead.
“Liberty Bell came out to play just as they always do, but we found a way to match their intensity and aggressiveness this year,” said Coach Scott Ward. “We played physical football and improved in each aspect of the game that was holding us back for the first couple of contests.”
Coach Ward gave props to the Offensive Line: Mason Cameron, Julio Pena, Joe Toolson, Michael Sanchez, Gerardo Guillen and Chayse Brooks for a job well done.
Leading the team was David Guillen who carried the ball 21 times for 258 yards- and had 2 touchdowns. Quarterback Bo Charlton rushed 10 yards and scored a touchdown. Mikey Pittman and Jorge Tejada also scored 2 touchdowns each, and Spencer Ward caught a pass for a touchdown.
On defense, David Guillen put up 10 solo tackles, 1 assist and a sack, while Joe Toolson and Jorge Tejada each added 5 solo tackles. Melvin Bernardo put up 4 solo tackles, Mason Walters had 3 and Mikey Pittman added 2 more.
