Conner Manning threw four touchdown passes, but it was a pass he caught that he'll remember most in Lake Forest El Toro's 41-31 victory over Rancho Santa Margarita Tesoro on Friday night at Trabuco Hills High. Manning hauled in an eight-yard pass from Jacob Furnari for the decisive score on a halfback option play with 4:54 remaining and the Chargers, ranked 17th in the Southland by The Times, stayed in contention for the South Coast League title. "It was a great call, a great throw, great blocking and I just had to catch it," said Manning, who completed 14 of 27 passes for 281 yards, including a 23-yard scoring strike to Blake Murphy on fourth down that clinched the win with 1:51 left.
