Don't count out the 2018 Manvel Mavericks
Originally Appeared on Vype
Unlike many Manvel teams in the past, the 2018 Manvel Mavericks have faced adversity twice in the early season.
The Mavs have been defeated twice this season by a combined three points.
The first loss came against the Crosby Cougars in a late game thriller that saw the Cougars win on a last second throw to the endzone.
The second came from the Marshall Buffalos. The Mavs and the Buffs battled it out for four long quarters, only to be tied up at the end of regulation.
In overtime, the Buffaloes captured the win on a gutsy two-point conversion.
These two losses have made many people wonder if this is the end of Manvel’s historic rise to the top of 5A football in Texas.
What they might not take into consideration is that the Mavs have been in this spot before.
In 2015, Manvel finished the regular season 8-2 with losses to Westfield and Pearland. That same season the Mavericks went all the way to the Regional Finals, only to lose to the Katy Tigers.
If this year’s team follows the footsteps of their alumni, they could very well find themselves advancing to the Regional Finals and maybe beyond.
