Many's title drought continues

Posted: Updated:
New Orleans, La. -

Jordan Vickers' 3-yard touchdown run with less than two minutes to go in the game proved to be the game winner as Kinder defeated Many 34-20 to capture the LHSAA Class 2A State Championship Friday night in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Trailing 20-18, Kinder (14-1) drove 87 yards on 16 plays and consumed over nine minutes in the fourth-quarter, culminating with Vickers' touchdown run to secure the school's third state championship and its first since 1978.

Vickers sealed the victory with less than a minute remaining in the game on his third touchdown run from 25 yards out.

The teams played back-and-forth throughout. Many (13-2) had outscored Kinder 13-0 in the second half thanks to a pair of touchdown runs from quarterback Xavier Dias. Dias' 1-yard touchdown run cut the Yellow Jackets lead to 18-13 and his 6-yard touchdown run put the Tigers up 20-18 before Kinder began its game-winning drive.

After Dias connected with Josh Berry for a 39-yard touchdown in the first quarter, Kinder trailed 7-6. The Yellow Jackets answered with the next 12 points behind a 61-yard interception return for a touchdown by Khalil Leblanc and a 55-yard touchdown run by Vickers.
