The Manchester boys 10 game win streak came to an end Saturday as the Peru Tigers defeated the Squires 55-40 at Manchester.

With 7-footer Seth Adelsperger altering shots in the paint and the Peru quickness making plays, the Squires stayed even with the Tigers in the first half before before Peru wore them down.

Manchester got on the board first when Chase Fierstos drained a three but Peru quickly answered with a bucket from Seth Adelsperger and two free throws from Michael Richardson. Chainey Zolman would then hit the second Squire three for a 6-4 lead, but again Adelsperger tied the score. With Manchester up 10-9 Fierstos and Zolman would hit back to back to give Manchester a 14-9 lead when Tyler Murphy drained a three and was followed by a Adelsperger bucket to make it 14-14 after one.
