Arch Manning has quiet game as Newman falls to rival

Arch Manning and Newman ran into a tough team on Friday in Louisiana and came away with a 17-13 loss to St. Charles.

The much-heralded University of Texas recruit was 7-of-15 passing for 121 yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions in the defeat.


The Greenies answered quickly with their best drive of the night, covering 65 yards in eight plays. Anthony Jones ended the drive by hauling in a 37-yard pass in the end zone from Manning, but the snap on the extra point was off target leaving Newman down 17-13 with 4:52 remaining in the game.

St. Charles picked up three first downs on the ensuing drive, but Newman got one last shot starting at its own 30-yard line with 12 seconds left. A short pass was completed on first down, but the next throw was incomplete as time expired.
