Friday, August 30, the Manvel Mavericks won their season opener against the Clear Lake Falcons 34-6, in dominant fashion.
After both teams were slow to get started, the Mavs offense finally got it rolling, with Senior Quarterback Tucker Yarbrough at the helm. Yarbrough looked precise all night, throwing for over 300 yards and four TD’s in his debut. Another bright spot from the Mavericks was their defense.
The Mavs defense looked very disciplined and were flying towards the ball all night, forcing four turnovers including two interceptions and two fumble recoveries.
The whole team played with the trademarked Manvel speed and physicality.
Coach Kevin Hall entering his second year, it would not be a shock if the Mavs make a deep run in the playoffs come November.
There may be a trip back to the bright lights of AT&T stadium to compete for a State championship come November.
