FSM Recap: Las Vegas High School Football – Faith Lutheran vs Bishop Manogue – 2023

www.FranchiseSportsMedia.com

Faith Lutheran (9-4/5-1) | Bishop Manogue (10-2/5-0)

 

It was Faith Lutheran vs Bishop Manogue for the 5A/D2 NIAA State Title. The Miners dominated and came away with a 49-6 win to clinch the 5A/D2 championship.

Faith Lutheran vs Bishop Manogue was for the 5A/D2 NIAA Nevada State Championship.

The 5A/D2 title game kicked off at 12:20. In this game, Faith Lutheran took on Bishop Manogue.

Bishop Manogue is one of the teams that went down to Division 2 when the realignment occurred. Last season, they lost to Bishop Gorman in the 5A state title game at Reno High School.

Former UNLV head football coach Mike Sanford leads the Crusaders. Coach Sanford led the Crusaders to a 9–3 record, 5–1 in their league heading into the game. They defeated Green Valley for the right to play in the 5A/D2 championship game.

Faith Lutheran is a well-balanced team, being able to score on the ground or through the air. Cale Breslin averaged 106.5 yards per game this season on the ground to go along with his ten touchdowns.

Could the power from Northern Nevada get the elusive title they missed out on taking on the southern powers, or would Faith Lutheran put a cap on their outstanding season?

The Miners came out first and scored a touchdown early in the first quarter, but the Crusaders came back quickly and tied it up at 7. But the Manogue offense was tough to stop as they racked up seven first-quarter points. They were too physical and strong at the point of attack for Faith Lutheran.

While the Miners did score their 7 points, the Crusaders scored 7 of their own. Early on, it was a high-scoring, back-and-forth battle between the two schools. The question was, who would make the play that would pull their team away from the other? Could Faith Lutheran keep up with the Miners’ offense, or would Manogue be too much to handle?

In the second quarter, the action didn’t stop. Both teams started to get into a groove offensively as they scored on their first few possessions. But Bishop Manogue scored two touchdowns late in the second quarter to put the game seemingly out of reach for the Crusaders.

The big play game after the Miners forced the Crusaders to punt. Two plays later, they hit on a 50-yard TD pass to give them a two-score lead and take the soul of the Faith Lutheran team.

At the half, Bishop Manogue led Faith Lutheran 23-14.

In the third quarter, it was much of the same for the Miners. They scored ten unanswered points and took complete control of the game. There was nothing Faith Lutheran could do to stop their offense as the Bishop Manogue Miners marched up and down the field.

This quarter exemplified what was wrong with the NIAA realignment this past offseason. There was no way Bishop Manogue should have been playing Faith Lutheran for a title in 5A/D2. Manogue, like a few other schools from Nothern Nevada, needed to be in the 5A/D1 level.

Credit the Crusaders for fighting until the end.

The fourth quarter was nothing more than Bishop Manogue doing all they could to get the clock to strike zero. The Faith Lutheran offense was pressured all game and was forced to rely solely on their passing attack. This season, they were highly successful with pay action and being able to move the pocket. They were unable to do that, with Manogue’s defensive line dominating the Crusaders’ offensive line for most of the game, especially in the fourth quarter.

The final score was 40-21 Bishop Manogue over Faith Lutheran for the 5A/D2 title.
