BLESSED TRINITY 42, TOWERS 13


Manthey rushes for 324 yards, 6 TDs as Titans top Towers


October 21, 2013
ROSWELL, Ga. – Senior Chad Manthey, Blessed Trinity's backup tailback for most of the season, stepped into the starting lineup after an injury to starter Milton Shelton, and responded with a breakout performance in last Friday's 42-13 victory over Towers, Oct. 18.

Manthey carried 34 times for 324 yards and six touchdowns, doing all his damage in the first three quarters.

Blessed Trinity coach Tim McFarlin said Manthey "ran through some tackles and had a lot of positive yards after contact. He played a complete ball game Friday night."

Shelton is sidelined with a hand injury and is "struggling with an ankle," McFarlin said. Manthey has taken over the rushing load in Shelton's absence, gaining more than 100 yards the previous week against Decatur.

Manthey got some help from BT's offensive line, led by center Zach Mitchler and tackle Austin Werkheiser.

Towers (0-4 in Region 6-AAA, 4-4 overall) scored its two touchdowns on a double pass and a kickoff return.

The Titans play Friday night at McNair (0-3, 1-6), and host region leader St. Pius the following week.
