In a county match-up, the Manchester boys soccer team shut out the Wabash Apaches 6-0 Thursday, Aug. 23.

Manchester's defense gave up one shot on goal.

“Great job by Logan Isbell, Ridge Fierstos, Dylan Brubaker, Klayton Hendrix, Sam Reichenbach, Elijah Burlingame and Tim Maser on defense, and Konrad Borgmann in goal,” Manchester coach Dave McKee said.

Offensively, Caleb Stout and Eric Morales led the Squires with two goals each, followed by Justin Self and Isaiah Davis with one apiece.

Morales had two assists, while Stout, Brandon Wagoner, Self and Reichenbach each had one assist.

“This was a very lackluster game,” McKee said. “[We] really never got going, but still came away with a 6-0 win.”

The Squires move to 3-0 on the season and 1-0 in conference play.

Wabash drops to 1-4 and 0-2 in the conference with the loss.

Manchester canceled the Manchester Invitational Saturday, Aug. 25 due to weather.

The Squires host Columbia City Thursday, Aug. 30, while Wabash travels to Caston Thursday, Aug. 30.
