Manchester held a 7-0 lead after one, then endured a 42-point second quarter between the two teams and trailed 28-21 at the half before falling 34-21.
 
The Squires got on the board first when Bailey Ness scored from 1 yard out to give Manchester a 7-0 lead after one.

Ever heard the old saying ”what goes around comes around”. For years the Tippecanoe Valley football team issued some beat downs on their home field against Wabash County teams. 
 
Last Friday night the Northfield Norseman repaid the debt.
 
Northfield score first and often Friday as they built their lead to 52-0 in a 59-7 old fashion romp over the Vikings.

BUNKER HILL -- The Wabash football team had a big date at Maconaquah on Friday as the Apaches took a perfect 3-0 record into the game. The Braves also boasted a 3-0 record with both teams being in the south division of the TRC. 
 
It would be a match up of the Braves offensive line size against the Apache defensive speed, with speed overcoming size as Wabash moved to 4-0 for the first time since 1966 in a 24-7 and take sole possession of the south division.
