It was rivalry night in Bradenton as the Manatee Hurricanes were hosting their longtime rival, the Palmetto Tigers on Homecoming. The Canes were also celebrating 100 years of Manatee football.
In the first Manatee’s Sloan Drummond hits Johnnie Lang for an 80-yard gain. But the Canes would fumble away an opportunity to take the lead inside the Palmetto 5-yard line.
Finally before half, Manatee was able to punch it in from the 1-yard line as Johnnie Lang gave Manatee a 10-0 lead at halftime.
In the third quarter, neither team was able to score…but in the fourth quarter, Manatee erupted with 21 points to win their rivalry game against Palmetto 31-12.
