The Manteca Junior Buffaloes bounced back from their only loss of the season with a simple formula on Saturday in a 46-8 victory over the Los Banos Wildcats.

Follow Frisby.

The varsity running back had 193 yards and two touchdowns on just 10 carries, highlighting the Junior Buffaloes’ seventh win in eight games.

Ferrin Manuleleua (8 carries, 35 yards), Seth Owings (5 carries, 70 yards), Zachary Chamberlain and quarterback Gino Campiotti also scored touchdowns for the Junior Buffaloes, who looked dominate following a loss to the Oakdale Stampede a week earlier.

Frisby was a difference-maker.

He scored on scampers of 9 and 57 yards and had a 67-yard run in the first quarter. His numbers don’t include a 95-yard touchdown run that was negated by a penalty. He also had three tackles and a sack.

Kyle Reis led Manteca’s defense with six tackles. Jacob Peterson had four tackles and a sack. Presley Keltner and Justin Kakala finished with five tackles for the Junior Buffaloes (7-1), who venture into Merced on Saturday to face the Bears.

Warren McGovern paced the defense with 14 tackles. Jimmy Mootz and DeJesus had eight tackles apiece, while Evan Gonzalez had six.
