Due to scheduling a high school football season in the spring, an unprecedented event took place at MHS Saturday night.  It was Senior Night, Homecoming, and the first home game of the season all rolled into one.  The stage was set for something extraordinary.  Manteo fell behind 16-0 early in the first quarter and trailed 28-16 at the half. And then, the extraordinary took place.  MHS outscored Camden 26-0 in the second half to win by the final score of 42-28.  The Manteo rushing attack was led by Tyner Gray with 18 carries for 163 yards and three touchdowns, Kolton Frady with 24 carries for 153 yards, and Bryson Sherrod with 11 carries for 72 yards.  QB Jack Cook also connected with Reid Gilreath for an 18 yard touchdown pass.  The defense was led by Mikey McCallum with 6 tackles and Ayden Oneal, Wyn Wheeler, and Trey Pearce with 3 tackles each.
