Week 5: CV 41 Manheim Central 35

It’s been a long time (1976) since Manheim Central has ever lost four straight games. But that’s what has happened as the Barons lost to Conestoga Valley 41-35 at home.

This was CV’s first win over the Barons since 2006.

If you like offense this was the game to watch. Both teams combined for 459 yards of offense in the first half alone.

CV QB Macoy Kneisley completed 8 of 11 throws for 218 yards and two touchdowns, including TD tosses of 60 and 44 yards.

CV also got a 69-yard TD sprint by Booper Johnson, and an 81-yarder by Jaiyell Plowden. Wide receiver Zach Fisher had five catches for 177 yards, scored two TDs and threw for one (more on that in a minute).

The Barons loss last week to Solanco 42-35 was just the third time they’ve scored 35 or more and lost in 72 years.

Next week Conestoga Valley hosts Solanco. Manheim Central goes to Elizabethtown.
