Early start helps Lady Apaches over Manchester
By Eric Christiansen
NORTH MANCHESTER -- A 12-0 first quarter run gave the Wabash Apaches enough cushion to maintain their lead and hold off the Manchester Squires in a 47-36 Three Rivers Conference win.
Unlike their previous game in the Wabash County Tournament championship game two weeks earlier, the Apaches didn't allow Manchester to get comfortable, but the Squires did their best to stay in the game.
Manchester's Ellie Milam gave the Squires their only lead of the game when she was fouled driving to the basket 18 seconds into the game. She hit one of two free throws for a 1-0 lead, but Wabash took control.
Sydni Mullett scored back-to-back baskets, followed by a free throw and a basket from Bailey Yoakum to make it 7-1 with 5:11 left in the first quarter.
