Manor (1-2, 1-3) grabbed the lead early in the second half and stopped the ensuing Pflugerville drive with an interception. Manor’s Che Nwabuko took a handoff 80 yards for a touchdown and a 19-10 lead midway through the third quarter.

Elijah Oakmon scored on a short rushing touchdown to get Pflugerville within 19-17 at the four-minute mark of the third quarter. Manor bounced right back with another explosive touchdown play for the 25-17 lead going into the fourth quarter.

Pflugerville’s Jaylon Reeves scored on a seven-yard rushing touchdown and converted a successful two-point conversion to tie the game at 25 early in the fourth quarter.
