Manchester boys down Wabash
By Eric Christiansen
 
In a mirror of their contest two weeks earlier, the Wabash Apaches stayed close with the Manchester Squires early, but watched the Squires open things up to run away with the game. This time it was a 57-39 Manchester win.
 
With three minutes left in the first quarter, both teams' defenses were on display, and the score was tied 5-5. Then things changed.
 
Manchester's Chase Fierstos scored seven straight points to close out the quarter with a 12-5 lead, and it didn't get any better for the Apaches the rest of the way.
 
"Our guys came in almost ready to play," Manchester coach Eric Thompson said. "Wabash was fired up and ready to go. I like the way our guys finally got into the rhythm of their game by keeping the pressure on and holding them down."
