MT. VERNON, OH - It was a sloppy start for Jornell Manns and the Mansfield Senior Tygers, as Manns fumbled on the 1st play from scrimmage and then Sid Caudill fumbled the ball at the goal line on the next Tygers possession. Mansfield found themselves down 10-0 early, but then Manns and the Tygers got going as Manns finished with a career-high 256 rushing yards in the Tygers 44-17 win at Mt. Vernon.

The Tygers racked up 557 total yards with Manns accounting for 256 yards on the ground along with two touchdowns. Sid Caudill was 12-18 for 182 yards with 3 TDs and 2 INTs.

Despite turning the ball over four times, the Tygers had no trouble pulling away with the win, outscoring the Yellow Jackets 41-7 after the 1st quarter.

Mt Vernon got 155 yards passing out of Jaxon Gregory as well as 113 yards rushing from Ashton Fisher. The Yellow Jackets were penaliazed 15 times for 152 yards.
