Second Half Gift Lifts Squires

New Sam Squire - CopyA second half gift from the Whitko goalie ended up being Merry Christmas to the Manchester boys soccer team as the Squires moved to 9-1-1 on the year with a 1-0 win over Whitko Wednesday.

Playing without starters Colin McNeeley and Cody Egner the Squires were short handed, but the depth built through out the year paid off as the Manchester defense held Whitko to just four shots on goal the entire game.

Although Manchester had 14 shots on goal, it was not a shot that won the game. The Squire goal came late in the second half on a throw in from Andrew Bolinger. Bolinger threw the ball towards the goal. with the goalie coming out to block the ball, which deflected off his gloves and into the net.

Had the goalie missed the ball before it went in the goal, the goal would not of counted as someone must touch the ball on a throw in.

The girls soccer team played to a 0-0 tie with Whitko.

Manchester had 20 shots on goal while holding Whitko to just 5.
