The Shot.
 
That was the talk of Wabash County last Wednesday night when Manchester’s Chase Fierstos crushed the hopes of the Northfield Norse with a buzzer beating 18-foot jump shot to lift the Squires to the Wabash County Tournament title 52-50 over Northfield.
 
With under a minute left, the Squires and Norse were tied 50-50 when Northfield’s Austin Trump tried to give Northfield the lead with a 3-pointer that was off the mark. Teammate Jake Schuler grabbed the rebound, but his put-back was off the mark. 
 
Manchester’s Mason Hamby rebounded the miss with 53 seconds left, and the Squires decided not to take a time-out, but rather work for the last shot.
 
“We have our stuff we work on in practice, situation stuff,” Manchester coach Eric Thompson said. “We knew what we wanted to do, we had the ball in the right man’s hands, and we had everybody else around who could do something if needed. 
 
“I thought we were playing pretty good basketball, and if we miss the shot, we go to overtime and try to play the best four minutes we can,” Thompson added. “The right man at the right time had the ball and hit the shot for us.”
