Chesapeake, Va. - "Finish plays, and finish the game," was the pre-game message from Indian River head coach Glenwood Ferebee. His players bought it. Even when facing a 28-7 deficit to Grassfield, they still bought it.

The Braves were down 35-20 in the 4th quarter and found a way to win their third straight over Grassfield. Devon Hunter ran for more than 150 yards, including a 79-yard run that set up the game-tying touchdown by Keyshawn Brown.

Brandon Manley is the #757Showdown Player of the Week with two interceptions to set up the go-ahead score, and to clinch the game in the waning seconds.
