Manchester/Southwood JH Girls Split


The Manchester and Southwood junior high girls basketball teams split a pair of games Thursday.

Girls JH 7th Basketball falls to Southwood 38 – 37 in double overtime thriller

Taking on a very talented Southwood Knights team, the 7th grade Lady Squires put on a show tonight! Down 9 with two minutes to play, the girls went on a furious run to tie the game on a buzzer beating rebound and put back by Brooklynn Grimes to force overtime. One overtime period wasn’t enough as the teams were tied again. Southwood made more free throws than the Squires tonight, which ended up being the difference in the game as the Knights squeaked out the win by 1 point. Proud of the girls resiliance and effort tonight!

Scoring as follows:

Elin Betten – 13
McKayla Dillon – 9
Brooklynn Grimes – 9
Ely Mobley – 4

On back-to-back nights the 8th grade Lady Squires played on the road against conference opponents and came away with two victories! Tonight the opponent was the Southwood Knights on the other side of Wabash county. For the 2nd night in a row, the girls played extremely tough girl-to-girl hard nosed defense holding Southwood to 19 points on the game.

Shiann Owens – 9
Marysa Stroud – 8
Olivia Stevens – 7
