Football: Bradenton Manatee 48, Palm Harbor University 14

BRADENTON — Manatee's starting offensive unit ran one second-half play.

But there was a message behind Brodrick Yancy's 80-yard catch-and-run touchdown from quarterback Josh Meyer following a Palm Harbor University onside kick after the visiting Hurricanes accepted a running clock.

"If you're going to onside kick, then why do you ask for a running clock?" Manatee coach Joe Kinnan said.

Kinnan's Hurricanes (10-0) dusted Palm Harbor University 48-14 on Friday with a quick-hitting offense in the first half to wrap up the program's third undefeated regular season in four years.

To accomplish the feat, which included an unblemished district slate en route to the Class 8A, District 7 title, Manatee scored on all six of its first-half possessions.

Half of those scores came on one-play drives.

Meyer connected with Yancy, who finished with three catches for 155 yards, for a 56-yard touchdown for the first one-play score. Then running back Johnnie Lang followed it up with a 35-yard burst to pay dirt.

Finally, University of Missouri commit Trevon Walters raced in 80 yards when Manatee received possession with 0:0.7 seconds remaining in the first half.

Manatee limited Palm Harbor University to just two scores, with one coming against the first-team unit after Kinnan inserted them back in following the onside kick that the visiting Hurricanes successfully recovered in the third quarter.

You concede defeat," Kinnan said. "We had all our backups out there. You take it down and score. Our two offense are going in, and those are the backup guys. We only ran one offensive play in the fourth quarter."
