MANHA: PACKERS STRIKE EARLY, HOLD OFF COWBOYS

The Packers steady play on both ends of the ball for the Manha Title got a busy Sunday of the GNYFF rolling.

By Robert Balajadia

GNYFF Championship Sunday got off to a strong start by the Packers as they scored a touchdown in each of the first two quarters and relied on their defense to hold down the Cowboys for a 13-6 victory for the 2019 Metgot crown.

Tough running from Packers Jayson Parr would set up a goal line score from Tavion Apatang in the 1st quarter and the Packers would add to that total with a seven-yard score from Seikuro Borja for a 13-0 lead.

The Packers took the first GNYFF Title Sunday morning, beating the Cowboys 13-6 in the Manha Division. Seikuro Borja (36) and Tavion Apatang (11) scored the touchdowns and Jayson Parr (18) did all the ground work to set up the scores in the team’s victory.

The Cowboys would come out much stronger after being down 13-0 at the half as they provided a quick answer in the 3rd quarter as Jayden Aguigui broke loose up the middle for a 35-yard touchdown run. An unsuccessful PAT left the score 13-6 heading into the 4th.

The Packers defense got a big surge from Joseph Mesa with the linebacker getting a key stop on 4th down for a Cowboys turnover late in the final quarter. With the stop, the Packers were able to take a victory formation to final the game.
