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.

Per Nola.com:

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.
