Third quarter lapse hurts Squires in loss to Huntington

by Gary Andrews

For the second game in a row a third quarter lapse by the Manchester boys basketball team hurt big time. Manchester was tied with Huntington at the half before a 22-10 run by the Vikings in the third led them to a 51-39 win over the Squires.

Chainey Zolman would get the first bucket of the game to give the Squires a 2-0 lead before Caleb Landrum hit a three and two free throws to give the Vikings a 5-2 lead. Again it would be Zolman connecting for the Squires to make it 5-4. The last point of the quarter came from a Hunter Hollowell free throw as Huntington led 6-4 after one.

David McAtee would hit two free throws to start the second quarter. Connor Platt would then find the hot hand for the Vikings, draining a deuce and a free throw to give Huntington a 10-7 lead when Zolman drained a three, then scored off an offensive rebound to put Manchester up 12-10. Sam Daugherty would then convert an old fashion three and was followed by a Conner Platt free throw to put the Vikings back up 14-12. Cameron Brandenburg would the tie the score and was followed by Branden Scott connecting for a 16-14 lead. Caleb Landrum ended the half with a bucket as the two teams were tied at 16 at the half.
