SACRAMENTO — It was a tale of two halves Saturday night in the Sac-Joaquin Section Division II Championship game between Manteca and Granite Bay at Hughes Stadium. The top-seeded Buffaloes ran away with the first half, and the No. 6 Grizzlies ran away with the final two quarters. But when the final buzzer sounded, it was the Buffaloes who hung one for the heart-stopping 51-48 win and a berth in the California Interscholastic Manteca's Blake Nichelson scores a touchdown in front of Granite Bay's Isaiah Ene (24).
