Mill Valley defeats Indians, 26-21

By Grant Guggisberg

After a dominating performance against Mill Valley a season ago, the Jaguars flipped the script on the Manhattan Indians in Friday’s season-opening return game, with Logan Koch rushing for 209 yards while scoring four touchdowns on the ground and two more through the air to lead the Jaguars to a 26-21 win.

Manhattan struggled offensively, but managed to cut into the Jaguar lead in the second half, with quarterback Kellen Myers, who split time with starter Darian Taylor, throwing a 6-yard touchdown pass to Winston Dimel with 2:02 left in the fourth. But Mill Valley ran out the clock from there, getting a first down to effectively end the game.

Manhattan will look to regroup next week in its home opener against Emporia.
