Lady Apaches beat Manchester in low-scoring affair
By Eric Christiansen
 
Wabash and Manchester made a memory Saturday night.
 
The Wabash County and Three Rivers Conference rivals struggled to put points on the scoreboard as the two teams combined for 32 points with the Apaches scoring the final four points of the game over a four minute stretch to top the Squires 19-13.
 
“We just put offensive basketball back 40 years,” Wabash coach Matt Stone jokingly said after the game.

Apaches hold off late Squire run
By Eric Christiansen
 
Wabash seemed to take control of their game with the Manchester Squires with a second quarter 15-0 run to take a 25-12 lead with 2:48 left in the first half. The Apaches never trailed after that, but the Squires didn’t make it easy in the fourth quarter.
 
The Squires hit five 3-pointers in the final nine minutes and got it as close as five points with 2:10 left, but Wabash held off Manchester to get the 61-54 Three Rivers Conference win.
 
Manchester had trouble all night with the inside game of Wabash, especially Austin Vinopal who scored 23 points to lead the Apaches. 
 
“Our game plan every night is to get the ball inside,” Wabash coach Paul Wright said. “Austin played a great game and had great feeds from the guards”
