Another day, another four touchdowns.
That just about sums up Conner Manning's life as a high school quarterback.
The El Toro senior turned in another sparkling performance on Friday to lead the Chargers—ranked No. 3 in Orange County—to a 35-17 South Coast League victory over Trabuco Hills.
Manning passed for two touchdowns in the first quarter, and one in the second and third quarters to stake El Toro to a 28-3 lead.
In the fourth, he ran one in from 7 yards.
All in all, a pretty good night for Manning and El Toro (9-0, 3-0 in league), which has a bye next week before closing out the season against No. 1 Mission Viejo (8-0, 2-0).
Manning threw touchdown passes of 15 and 39 yards to Cody White, and 37 and 3 yards to Dominic Collins.
The Utah-bound quarterback passed for 301 yards, and now has 38 touchdowns in eight games with only three interceptions. Jacob Furnari added 110 yards rushing for the Chargers.
For Trabuco Hills (4-4, 0-2), Blake Cuzzupoli kicked a 25-yard field goal in the second quarter to keep the Mustangs relatively close, and then J.T. Land scored on runs of 6 and 5 yards to pull to within 28-17 with 7 minutes 31 seconds left in the game.
