Squires Drop Tight Contest To Maconaquah

NORTH MANCHESTER – Weston Hamby had 13 points to pace Manchester in its 39-36 Three Rivers Conference boys basketball loss to visiting Maconaquah Tuesday night.

The Squires led 22-21 at halftime, then were outscored 10-6 by the Braves in the third quarter. Both teams scored eight points in the final period.

Koehl Fluke had seven points, Mason Hamby added six and Kam Lester five points for the Squires.

“We just needed a few more shots to fall. It’s hard to win when you shoot 28 percent from the field,” said Manchester coach Mark Underwood. “To shoot that poorly and still come within three points of a very good Maconaquah team means that you are doing a lot of other things right. I’m really proud of these guys.”

In the junior varsity game, Caleb Stout scored 12 points and Kreeden Krull added 11 more for Manchester in its 48-28 win.

Next up for the Squires (4-7, 1-2 TRC) is a conference game at Wabash Friday night.
