HIGHLIGHTS: Bishop England tops Manning, 45-36, in wild comeback | Friday Night Rivals

Bishop England beats Manning, 44-36 - Friday Night Rivals (WCIV)

His team trailing 36-32 with 45 seconds left in the game, Bishop England quarterback Leo Albano rolled to his right and heaved a desperation pass to the endzone Friday. The ball sailed 44 yards, barely clearing the fingertips of a leaping Manning defender, and falling into the waiting hands of Will Bastian to give the Bishops the 38-36 lead and ultimately the win in our Friday Night Rivals Game of the Week.


Bishop England went on to win, 45-36 after Daniel Hollister recovered a Manning fumble in the endzone on the Monarchs' ensuing drive. The win came after a wild back-and-forth match-up, which saw Manning score on three consecutive drives to take a 28-13 lead over the Bishops in the third quarter after trailing 13-7 at halftime.

Bishop England - Christian Greavu impressive catch

Albano ran for three touchdowns, and threw for two more to lead the Bishops. Jacob Shiver ran for a TD for the Bishops, while Bastian and Chris Dengler caught TD passes. Chris Greavu had an interception on defense for the Bishops, and made a circus catch the play before Alabano's game-winning TD throw.

Manning quarterback Jack Owens ran for a touchdown and threw another to David Fulton to lead his team. Dejaun Wilson, Darias Williams and Cam'ron Cain had TD runs for the Monarchs,

A Manning player, Brandon Burgess, suffered a neck injury in the game. The game was stopped more than 20 minutes while EMS was called. Burgess was stretchered off the field. Coaches say it was precautionary, and he's expected to be OK.
