HAMPTON. Va. -- Manchester High School’s quest for a perfect season and the school’s first-ever state championship comes down to one game.
The Lancers, led by quarterback Brendon Clark and a stout defense, advanced to their first-ever state final over the weekend after dominating the previously unbeaten Ocean Lakes Dolphins 42-3.
Clark accounted for three touchdowns and the Lancers defense recorded six sacks and forced four turnovers in the win.
Manchester will play the Freedom-Woodbridge Eagles (13-1) for the Class 6 state championship in Hampton, Virginia. The game will be held at Hampton University at 4:30 p.m.
Led by head coach Tom Hall, the Lancers will join two other local teams, the Highland Springs Springers, and the Goochland Bulldogs, competing for a state title this weekend.
