MANCHESTER, Ga. -- Manchester scored 37 second-quarter points to pace a 51-16 win over Spencer Friday at Manchester Memorial Stadium.
The win marked the 122nd win for Greg Oglesby as Manchester head coach. That total eclipses Juby Shiver total of 121 wins to make Oglesby the winningest coach in Manchester's storied football history.
"It's overwhelming," an emotional Oglesby said. "Juby Shiver was a great coach. I played for him, coached with him for years. Just to know that I am in the same ball park with him is an honor."
The only possession of the first half the Blue Devils failed to score was its first of the game. The Blue Devils drove from its own 30-yard line to the Greenwave 6-yard line before Devante Davis fumbled near the goal line. Travon Culpepper recovered the fumble in the endzone giving Spencer the ball at the 20-yard line.
Spencer drove across midfield before a bad snap went over the head of punter Tevin Peleska. Peleska was tackled at the Greenwave 25-yard line.
Manchester scored six plays later when Quinterious Prather dove in from 3-yards out. Darius Alford's kick made the score 7-0 with 1:12 remaining in the fist period.
The scoring onslaught began on the first play of the second quarter when another high snap went over Peleska's head. Peleska recovered the ball in the endzone for a Manchester safety and a 9-0 score.
After the free kick the Blue Devils drove 40-yards in 5 plays to go up 16-0 on Demien Turner's 11-yard run.
Manchester's next scoring drive was two plays for 59-yards, both passes from Turner.
