In a game that went back and forth through three quarters, Hayden turned away a potential tieing score, and defeated Manhattan 28-21.
The Wildcats go to 4-0 under first year coach Bill Arnold.
Hayden High built a two touchdown lead at 28-14, before the Indians rallied to pull within a touchdown. A late interception gave Manhattan the ball with plenty of time, but Hayden's defense clamped down to hold Manhattan in check. Hayden is undefeated in league play and will host Junction City next week.
