Manchester didn't need a second half comeback to win.  Instead the Lancers got a late game stand to beat Riverbend 37-28 and advance to the 6A South Region Final.

The Lancers trailed 7-0 early before scoring the next 16 points of the half behind a safety and two Brendon Clark touchdowns.  Clark threw for 108 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for another 38 yards and one score.

Frank Boyd and Jaysen Glover rushed for a combined 240 yards and two touchdowns for Manchester, who tied a school record with their 11th win of the season.  They will host Colonial Forge next Saturday in the 6A State Quarterfinals.
