RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The Manchester Lancers were led by quarterback Cody Shelton as they rebounded from last week’s loss to Midlothian, defeating the Cosby Titans, 42-7.
Shelton completed 13 of 16 passes for 311 yards and threw for three touchdowns. He also added another touchdown on the ground, running the ball seven times for 76 yards.

Shelton started it with his feet, scoring from a yard out, then continued with his arm, connecting with Eric Smith on a 71-yard bomb. Kyree Richardson’s 11-yard scoring rush made it 28-7.
After the half, the Lancers added a 27-yard TD pass from Shelton to Ramon Brown and a 3-yard Ben Kelly TD rush.
Coley had 101 rushing yards in the loss for Cosby.
