The Manteca Cowboys are once again Super Bowl-bound.

The varsity squad of the NorCal All-American Youth Football League will try to make it three victories in a row in championship games come Saturday at Stagg High.

But the Cowboys, who’ll face the Weston Ranch Falcons in the title game, will have to do so without the services of Parker Caston, who according to league president Eddie Lopez, is out with a broken ankle.

Manteca is fresh off a 33-7 victory over the Fremont Huskies.

Mykail Redman led the way offensively, racking up 116 yards rushing and scoring on touchdown runs of 25 and 70 yards. On defense, he had an interception for a TD and was in on four tackles.

Donicio Samoy had a 50-yard TD run, finishing with 76 yards on the ground. Justin Scoz tallied 35 yards and an extra point.

In addition, Nillo Yuson came through with a 9-yard scoring run.

On defense, Jaymz Jones, Paul Johnson and Scoz collected six tackles each. Yuson chipped in with three tackles.

Steven Sanchez, Brian Galvan and Johnson each recovered a fumble.

The Cowboys will also send their junior varsity and starter teams to the Super Bowl. The JV team is also in search of the three-peat. The program was previously a part of the National Youth Football League.

Kimoni Stanley rushed for 158 yards with a touchdown in the Manteca victory over the Delta Rebels.

Joshua Grabowski chipped in with 115 yards and a TD while Joelle Urtega scored twice while tallying 30 yards.

On defense, Grabowski led the way with five tackles and five assists stops. Nicco Cedolini also had five tackles with one assisted. Anthony Alcarez assisted on six tackles and had two unassisted.
