IOWA COLONY — Scoring 21 unanswered points in the second half was enough for the Manvel Mavericks to take care of the Nederland Bulldogs in the Class 5A Region III D-II bidistrict round on Thursday with a resounding 49-14 victory at Freedom Field. Manvel (11-0) used the legs of senior running back Donavan Eaglin, who scored on 64-yard run in the second half to go along with two more scores in the first half. He finished with 185 yards on the ground in 18 carries.

The Mavericks cruised in the first half 28-0, until the Bulldogs found a bit of a burst right before halftime.
