The Patriots (11-5) saw Manvel inch into a 17-17 tie midway through the second quarter before inching out to a 23-17 edge.

That momentum turned into a 29-23 halftime lead and then a blistering run in the third quarter saw GCM roll out to a 62-38 lead and that led to an easy win for the host Patriots in a win between the two teams favored to win District 22-5A.
