Two teams that are still struggling to find their footing met up in Week 6. One managed to get back on track while the other fell further. Manheim Township took the early 7-0 lead thanks to a sliding effort from Isiah Jones. With five minutes left in the second, Hayden Johnson finds Michael Heckmanto double the score, 14-0. Cedar Crest would add a TD to get on the board before the half and that’s all they would get in the 42-7 blowout.
