The Manchester Lady Squire basketball team lost a 58-34 turn over plagued game to Triton Tuesday. It was just one of those nights as the Lady Squires turned the ball over 28 times.

The wheels would start to come off for Manchester in the second as reserve Kayelyn Andritsch would score the lone bucket of the quarter, with Triton out scoring Manchester 19-5 to take a 29-15 lead at the half.
Kayla Flack would get going in the third, hitting three buckets but the Squires couldn’t stop Triton from outside the arch, as they hit three times to out score the Squires again, 12-10 to lead 41-25 with a quarter to go.
The Triton offense would keep clicking in the fourth and as the Squires fouled to get the ball back, Triton would convert their free throws for the 58-34 final.
