New Crosby head coach Jerry Prieto leading his Cougars up against Manvel Thursday night… Crosby strikes first, Deniquez Dunn rolls to his right and launches deep downfield for Jalen Herman, and how about the fingertip catch by Herman, it’s a 47-yard touchdown, Cougars lead 6-0. Manvel responds, Tucker yarborough hits Jalen Walthall, nice spin move by Walthall to slip out of the tackle, and he’s gone, 30 yards for the touchdown, Mavs go in front 7-6. Still in the first, same combo, yarborough to Walthall on the slant, perfect execution and Manvel leads 14-6 after one. Crosby answers in the 2nd, Le-Andre Smith plunges into the end zone from a yard out for a Cougars score, that makes it a 14-13ball game. Back comes Manvel. Guess who? It’s yarborough to Walthall for hooking up for their scoring connection of the first half, it’s a 23-yard touchdown, Mavs lead 21-13. More Manvel, this time on the ground, Donovan Eaglin gets the carry, he breaks through a couple of tackle and gets into the open field, he takes it 43 yards for a mavericks touchdown, Manvel leads 27-13 at halftime. Yarborough throws four touchdown passes on the night, he airs this one out deep to Jalen Paxton who can coast into the end zone for a 65 yard score, and Manvel improves to 2-0 with a 39-27 win over Crosby.
