Squire soccer falls at regional

The Manchester High School boys soccer team saw its magical season come to an end Saturday morning, Oct. 19.

The eighth-ranked and undefeated Squires lost to 12th-ranked Leo 3-0 in the opening game of the Oak Hill Regional to finish the season with an 18-1 record.

Leo struck first in with a goal at the 34:16 mark of the first half.

Meanwhile, Manchester was having trouble finding its groove, spending most of the first 20 minutes at midfield and on defense.

“They played their defense back so you can't put anything over their defense for our offense to run on,” Manchester coach Dave McKee said.

Oddsmakers anticipate tight battle for AFC South supremacy Sunday in Indianapolis

By Joe Rodgers, BetIndiana News

First place in the AFC South is on the line in Sunday’s Texans-Colts game from Lucas Oil Stadium (1 p.m. ET/Noon CT, CBS), and based on the point spread, we are in for a tight division affair.

The Colts are consensus 1-point favorites in early betting action. When factoring 3 points for home-field advantage, the spread suggests the Texans (4-2 straight up and against the spread) would be favored at a neutral site, but Indianapolis (3-2 SU, 3-1-1 ATS) has owned the series both SU and ATS of late.

Since 2011, the Colts are 11-6 SU and 11-5-1 ATS against the Texans, including winning and covering four of the past five meetings. Last season, the Colts avenged a Week 4 home loss by beating Houston on the road as underdogs in Week 14, and more importantly, again in the wild-card playoff game on Jan. 5.

In that 21-7 wild-card win as 1-point away underdogs, the Colts, behind 148 rushing yards by Marlon Mack, outgained the Texans 422-322 and held Houston running backs to under 30 yards.

The eighth-ranked Squires remained undefeated at 18-0 with the win and will compete for a regional title this Saturday at Oak Hill High School.

“This is awesome,” Manchester coach Dave McKee said. “I just stood there and watched all the players dog pile on Sam (Reichenbach) … and all the bleachers clear. I got real emotional.”

Reichenbach clinched the win with Manchester's fourth goal on penalty kicks.

Both teams felt each other out over the first 15 minutes of play before the scoreboard started lighting up.

Harley Kruschwitz gave Manchester and early lead with a goal at the 23:16 mark by cutting through defenders and scoring unassisted for a 1-0 lead.

Colts’ odds to win Super Bowl adjusted after huge win in Kansas City

By Marcus DiNitto and Joe Rodgers

With their 19-13 win at Kansas City on Sunday night, Indianapolis made a move up the Super Bowl 54 futures board, its odds to lift the Lombardi Trophy next February in Miami adjusted from 100/1 to 60/1 in Las Vegas. The Colts were assigned those triple-digit odds after a flat performance in a home loss to the Raiders in Week 4, but then they beat the Chiefs as 10.5-point underdogs in the biggest upset so far of the NFL season.

Heading into the Colts’ bye week, not much separates them from the Texans in odds to finish atop the competitive AFC South. While Indianapolis and Houston both sit with 3-2 records through five weeks of action, the latter remains the favorite to win the division, at +145 odds (bet $100 to win $145), a tick above of the Colts (+175) on the betting board.

But now it’s the Texans’ turn to visit Arrowhead Stadium. In Week 6, Houston is a 5-point underdog to the Chiefs, who figure to come out with plenty of motivation as they look to avoid a second straight loss.

Looking ahead to Week 7, the Colts will be rested when they welcome the Texans for a key divisional showdown, but health remains a concern for Indy.  The latest piece of tough injury news: Second-year defensive end Kemoko Turay is out for the season with a broken ankle suffered in Kansas City.
