The North Delta Green Wave team advanced one more level to the North State Championship game by defeating Manchester Academy 35-14 on Friday, November 8.

It was a windy night and many excited fans on both sides of the field.

Manchester won the coin toss and elected to receive the ball.

Collins Bryant did not waste any time setting the tone for the evening when he ran the ball for 68 yards to the endzone with 8:37 left in the first quarter on the first offensive play of the game for North Delta.

The Green Wave led 7-0 after Dallas Allgood kicked the extra point.
