The Manchester boys basketball team traveled to Logansport Saturday and fell to the Berries 73-54.
The Squires, missing their main defensive stopper in Braydon Sewell couldn’t stop the one-two punch of Adaway and Jennings, along with some offensive struggles of their own just couldn’t get the machine rolling.

Logansport extended their lead to 25-14 in the second when Chase Fierstos hit twice, including a three to close the gap to 25-20 and trailed 27-22 after a Kane Gable bucket before the Berries scored the last 4 points for a 31-22 halftime lead.
The third quarter is when Logansport put some distance between the two teams, out scoring the Squires 26-14 to open a 57-36 lead after three. Koehl Fluke had two buckets in the quarter with David McAtee and Hamby adding buckets.
