Week Eight Manual vs Butler

Bearmeat Tastes Like Chicken.

Manual 41- Butler 21

The loser of this would behind the proverbial eight ball. Butler had already taken it's mulligan against Iroquois and 1-0 in the district. Manual was 0-1 after St.X. I expected a tough game. I didn't expect the smack from the Butler assistants in the press box.

Fortunately, that was about as offensive as they could be. Take away some stupid penalties on our part and the score would have been more convincing. Now the third week of district play become even more interesting. Manual travels to PRP Thursday to meet a team that is nearly a mirror of itself. Both 4-3. Both have 2 losses to the 2 of the Big Three. Both have lost on the road to strong State schools. Both run the Wing-T offense. Both wear red and black. The Cheerleaders have the same uniforms etc. etc.
One team will lose and the unenviable task of traveling to, more than likely to undefeated John Hardin in the first round of the playoffs. Manual has handled Meade Co. which is a favorable first round game. PRP has trounced North Hardin as well. The winner of Thursday's game will have a much easier draw. Let's hope its Manual.
