Manvel cruise past Sharpstown with 76-0 win

By: Joey Allender

Thursday night the Manvel Mavericks squared off against the Sharpstown Apollos in the district opener for both teams. 

The Mavs came into the matchup 2-0 with wins over Clear Lake and Crosby. The Apollos, however, came in with a record of 0-1 with a loss versus Wheatley. 

Manvel dominated from the get go, their offense led by Senior quarterback Tucker Yarbrough was firing on all cylinders with 5 touchdown passes. Yarbrough was accurate and precise all night although he always sees room for improvement. 

“We made mistakes that we need to clean up next week for Marshall,” says Yarbrough.

The Mavs displayed a nice balanced rushing attack to go along with their passing game. Senior running back Donovan Eaglin led the way for the Mavs with a touchdown to go along with a couple of long, physical runs. 

“We got better and worked hard as a team,” said Eaglin, “We’re just focused on Marshall next week.”

The Maverick Defense looked really solid as well, garnering home a defensive touchdown to go along with 3 turnovers. Manvel faces Marshall next week for a long awaited rematch at Hall Stadium.
