Manchester wins home soccer invite

by Gary Andrews

The Manchester boys’ soccer team won the Manchester Soccer Invite Saturday, topping Whitko 1-0 before defeating Rochester 2-1 in the final.

After the 1-0 victory over Whitko put the Squires in the championship game, game two would be a defensive battle for the crown. The first half would end up scoreless to set up an exciting second half finale. The Zebras would get on the board first off a ricochet that found the back of the net to lead 1-0.

Just two minutes later David Fahs-Brown would sneak a shot behind the defenders off the right side to knot the score at one. Less than two minutes after the Fahs-Brown goal, Braydon Sewell would catch a rebound off a crowd at the net with a header to find the back of the goal which ended up being the game winner.

Zach Hill was named the MVP of the tourney.
