Manha – Saints 18, Raiders 12 (overtime)

With the overtime period looming, the Raiders were given the ball first from 10 yards out as they were stuffed on four straight run plays to give the Cinnabon Saints back the ball. After the Saints managed to wrap up Raiders Tyler Taitano in the backfield on 4th down, the coaching staff on the sideline exploded in celebration.

The Saints then but the ball in the hands of Leonard John Tedtaotao for two straight carries as he managed to fall into the end zone draped with two Raider defenders to give his team the overtime victory.

Metgot Saints 25, Raiders 0 

It was a rough day for the Metgot Raiders as Saints Kameo Toves and Dylan Peter Manibusan were all over the field doing just about everything on both offense and defense.

The Saints opened up by scoring on their first drive of the game after Toves gashed the Raider defense for a 50-yard run to get within three yards of the end zone. A penalty set the Saints back five yards, but Manibusan made it a non-factor as he ran straight up the middle for a score to put the Saints up 6-0.

Toves then picked off Raiders quarterback Derran Cruz at their own 10-yard line early in the second quarter. The Saints then marched all the way down into the Raider red zone where they had difficulty converting on a 4th down turning the ball back over to the Raiders.

Cruz threw another costly interception as Manibusan picked him off still in Raider territory. Toves then took complete control from 30 yards out, running up the left side of the field for another touchdown to go up 12-0 at the half.

Manibusan free for a third quarter touchdown to get the three score lead 18-0, before they would strike again in the final period to put the game way.
