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.
Wabash WebTV will be at Northfield as the Norse host Southwood in the Metro Bowl. This is a border battle that should also be a good one. Northfield will be looking to stop the Knights’ momentum as they have now won two straight games. This gives the winner a leg up in the conference standings as well as bragging rights in the county race. Join me along with Jim Landrum as we bring you all of the colorful action.
Join Wabash WebTV every Friday evening for all of the exciting action of Indiana High School Football in the area. If you are at a game or cannot watch it live, an archive of the featured game is available on the website shortly after the completion of the games.
This week Wabash WebTV will also be at Southwood for their volleyball game against North Miami on Oct. 8 and at Northfield next week on Oct. 15 for their volleyball game against Oak Hill.
