Louisville Male and Manual High Schools met to compete in high school’s longest running, uninterrupted rivalry. Friday, October 29th pitted these two foes against each other for the 128th meeting in the history of the rivalry. A crowd of greater than 7,000 packed the stands to be witness to the magic that is high school football.
Manual jumped on the scoreboard first with just over three minutes left to go in the first quarter. Great American Rivalry Series MVP, DarMonte Warr, punched home a 4-yard run that capped off the drive and gave Manual an early 7-0 first quarter lead. Heading into half time, the score was tied at 14-14. The second half of the ballgame was a defensive battle stymied both offenses and showed that the game could come down to the last team with the ball. On a final drive, Male had a chance to win with 23 seconds left. However, that would be as close as they got because Manual's Andrew Ledford forced Male to use their final timeout as he sacked the quarterback.
