Teams continue conference play

By Bill Barrows

Here are last week’s results along with pairings for this coming Friday night. Northfield bested Manchester 42-21 and Southwood beat Wabash 31-6.

Manchester hung close with the Norse, trailing 28-21 after three quarters. However touchdown runs by Alex Haupert and Clayton Tomlinson (his third on the night) iced the game for the Northfield. Grayden Holmes and Braden Ripplinger also scored for Northfield, while Delton Moore, Tyce Rooney and Seth Gaerte all scored for Manchester.

Southwood had two touchdowns by Jackson Simons and one each by Gabe Lloyd and Carson Rich to defeat Wabash. The Apaches’ lone score came on a 21-yard pass by Jared Holley to Logan Vander Velden.

This week; Northfield (3-2) travels to undefeated Rochester (5-0), Whitko (0-5) hosts Southwood (5-0). Manchester (2-3) entertains Tippecanoe Valley and Peru plays at Wabash (0-5). Those are all Three Rivers Conference games.
