Ninety years ago, on November 20, 1926, the Manteca High football team defeated the Ceres High eleven in Ceres. The score was 7 to 0. The teams played on a muddy field and the aerial game was relied on by both teams. Manteca took advantage of the breaks and scored their touchdown in the first few minutes of the game. Carlson blocked a Ceres punt and Fay Forsell fell on the ball at the 32. Five plays later, Ed Forsell passed to Joe Bianchi for the touchdown. Fay Forsell converted.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Kyrie Irving scored 19 of his season-high 39 points in the fourth quarter, and LeBron James had a triple-double in the Cleveland Cavaliers' 112-108 victory over Philadelphia on Sunday.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) - Colin Kaepernick threw three touchdown passes, ran for 113 yards and nearly rallied the woeful San Francisco 49ers from a 17-point deficit in the final eight minutes Sunday, which left a lot to talk about afterward.
