It was the last home game for what may be remembered as the most talented group of seniors in school history, and Manchester Academy didn't leave anything on the field.
Now this team gets to strap on their helmets one more time as the Mavericks prepare to take on Riverdale Thursday for a chance to bring home a second straight state title.
Manchester defeated Humphreys Academy 52-12 to earn another trip to Jackson.
Senior running back Michael Williams scored three touchdowns in the first half and had 39 yards on just four carries.
Quarterback Jon Riley Poe had another perfect passing performance, completing all four of his passes and finding Tres Paul for a 19-yard touchdown and Staten Greenlee for a 42-yard score.
Parks Poe had 121 yards and a touchdown on just six carries and had a catch for 46 yards.
Mills Paul also added a rushing touchdown.
The Mavericks came out swinging against Humphreys with Parks Poe quickly scoring on a 35-yard carry and Dylan Dendy punching in the two-point conversion for an 8-0 lead.
Parks Poe recovered the following onside kick to set up a drive that ended with Michael Williams scoring from 10 yards out. Jon Riley Poe added two points with a quarterback keeper for an early 16-0 lead.
Williams scored his second touchdown of the night with 5:37 still left on the clock in the first quarter. Jon Riley Poe tossed a two-point pass to Dylan Dendy to make it 24-0.
Staten Greenlee had a 42-yard touchdown catch to make it 30-0 in the first quarter, and the Mavericks still weren't done.
Tres Paul added a touchdown reception, and Parks Poe added two to make it 38-0, and it was still in the first quarter.
Humphreys finally got on the board midway through the second quarter to cut it to 38-6.
Williams added his third touchdown of the night just before the end of the first half, and MA carried a 46-6 lead to the locker room.
Defensively the Mavericks also continued to shine.
Connor Stevens had four tackles and an interception.
Parks Poe had six tackles and a fumble recovery, while his brother Jon Riley Poe had five tackles and an interception.
Dylan Dendy had five tackles and a sack.
Tyler Bardwell had five tackles and two tackles for loss.
Hayes Kyle had a fumble recovery.
Manchester (12-0) will now enter the state title game undefeated with no team coming within 30 points of beating the Mavericks this year.
Mavericks head coach Bryan Dendy said the only thing on his mind is what lies ahead, however.
"I'm extremely proud of our kids for making it back to another state championship game," he said. "We have to have a good week of practice and preparation. Riverdale is a really good football team."
Riverdale (9-3) appears to have the potential to be Manchester’s greatest challenge. The Rebels enter the contest after defeating Delta Streets 50-24 in their first playoff game before defeating Delta Academy 30-14 last week.
The game is set for 3 p.m. Thursday at Jackson Academy.
