Hempfield holds off Manheim Township in Week 8 with 17-14 win

Friday Night Football

Hempfield was just behind the leaders in the division heading into Week 8. A win over Manheim Township would put them in the traffic jam for the division lead. At the half, Manheim Township was down 14-7. Hempfield chewed up as much time as possible before adding a 22-yard field goal by Gannon Bisco to extend the Black Knight’s lead to 17-7. Manheim Township kept things close as a Jaydeon Johnson 2-yard keeper made it 17-14. 3 minutes left in the game, Manheim Township go for it on 4th and 10 but a Chase Petrosec sack stops the comeback attempt in its tracks as Hempfield holds on 17-14.
