PREP ROUNDUP: Mannering gets first win for Kings
From Pharos Tribune Staff Reports Sep 5, 2020
Clayton Mannering picked up his first win as the head coach of the Lewis Cass Kings on Friday night.
The Kings recorded an 19-13 win at Benton Central.
Tyson Johnson rushed for 93 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries for the Kings (1-2). He also hauled in a 22-yard TD pass from Keegan Lytle, who added two-yard TD run.
The Kings led 13-7 at halftime and 19-7 after three. They didn’t secure the win until recovering an onside kick with about two minutes remaining.
“We started off hot for the first time this year and moved the ball well right from the beginning,” said Mannering, whose team accumulated 227 yards of offense for the game, 182 on the ground. “We definitely let it get closer than we needed to at the end, but overall it was just a great football game and it was good to see us get over the hump.”
