Manchester picks up county win over Wabash

By Gary Andrews

In what some thought would be an offensive battle, the Manchester Squires and Wabash Apaches defenses stepped up, especially in the first half in a 22-8 Manchester win.

The lone score of the first quarter was a Squire safety that gave Manchester a 2-0 lead after one. With both defenses dominating in the first half, the Squires would get the only score of the second quarter on a Lucas Schilling touchdown with 0:47 left to give the Squires an 8-0 lead at the half.

County football match ups continue Friday on Wabash WebTV

By Bill Barrows

The four Wabash County varsity football teams are in the midst of facing off again this week, during the latter stages of the regular season as the Three Rivers Conference schedule winds down. 

The Manchester Squires will host the Wabash Apaches.  Manchester will be coming off of a disappointing loss at Southwood. Wabash lost on Homecoming Night to Northfield. Both the Squires and the Apaches were able to put enough points on the board to win, but could not put enough together defensively to get the job done. Both will be looking to play more consistently on the defensive side of the football this week. This match up could be a good one as both teams lay it on the line.

Norse spoil Apache homecoming

by Gary Andrews
It was homecoming night at Wabash as the Northfield Norsemen came to town. In night one of the county round robin the Norse would spoil the Wabash special night, defeating the Apaches 41-22.
For the first 11:00 of the game it was a defensive battle as both teams chewed up the clock keeping the ball on the ground. After each team had a possession, the Norse took the ball over on the 12 yard line after a great Roger Davis punt with 4:29 on the clock. The Norse kept the ball on the ground, mounting a drive that had two big runs, one from Shane Vigar and one from Alec Wells to get to the Wabash 22. Two plays later Carter Frieden went to the air, finding Wells from 18 yards out with 1:08 on the clock to take a 7-0 lead after one.
After holding the Apaches to start the second quarter, the Norse wasted no time in finding the end zone again. On an 8-play drive the Norse marched 54 yards when Frieden found Jarred Short from 14 yards out with 8:05 remaining to take a 14-0 lead. The Norse would score one more time in the quarter. Alec Wells would run an Apache punt back to the Wabash 13 and two plays later Shane Vigar found pay dirt from 7 yards out to give Northfield a 21-0 lead at the half.
