Grant Snowden kicked a 38-yard field goal on the final play of the game to life the Manhattan Indians to a 31-28 victory over the Junction City Blue Jays Friday night at Bishop Stadium in Manhattan.
The kick ended a see-saw game that saw both teams hold the lead before Manhattan drove down the field in the closing minutes to kick the field goal and defeat the Blue Jays. That drive began after the Blue Jays were stopped at the Indians 7-yard line on a fourth and one play, ending a chance for the Blue Jays to take a seven-point lead.
.Junction City ( 5-1 ) also fumbled the football at the Manhattan ( 5-1 ) one yard line late in the second quarter. The Indians recovered the ball, leaving the game tied 14-14 going into halftime.
With the win Manhattan claims possession of the Sportsmanship Trophy for the coming year. That trophy is presented to the winner of the game between the two schools each year.
