    When Freedom and Manchester take the field in about an hour they will do so with their first state title on in the balance.

    Freedom's lone loss of the season was to Lake Taylor, 42-28. Of course Lake Taylor will be playing for a state title today as well.

    Manchester on the other hand has not lost since falling to Colonial Forge in last years playoff. The Lancers avenged that loss and then more less manhandled Ocean Lakes in the state semifinals.

    Today will be just Freedom's 10th playoff game in their short history. They are 5-4 overall making their first state final appearance.

    Manchester on the other hand is 9-6. Although they have been around longer than Freedom, they only made the playoffs once from when they opened to 2012. They have made the playoffs every year since the realignment of 2013.

    Manchester is led by quarterback Brendon Clark who has thrown for 2,122 yards and 33 touchdowns! He has just 1 interception if you can believe that.

    His counterpart is Freeman quarterback Quest Powell. Powell has thrown for more yards, 2,301 yards and 30 touchdowns! He has 13 interceptions on the year.

    Isaiah Todd of Manchester has rushed for 1,018 yards and has 13 touchdowns.

    Tyquan Brown of Freeman has rushed for 2,539 yards and 25 touchdowns.

    Quite the difference but keep in mind the Lancers have 4 other players who have rushed for over 300 yards, 2 of them Romell Garcia and Brendon Clark himself have rushed for over 600 yards and have 28 touchdowns themselves!

    Brown suffered a shoulder injury against Westfield and JT Edwards stepped up in his place.

    Manchester is a senior laden team who will be playing in Class 5 next season. This might very well be the last Class 6 Final the Lancers play in for some time to come.

    Not the start the Lancers hoped for. Fumble the return and Freedom has the ball in business at the 24 of Manchester!
