The Manchester tennis team lost a close match against sectional rival Peru. Winning for Manchester was the 1 doubles team of Branden Scott and Noah Cain. They started strong winning the opening set 6-1, but they lost focus dropping set two 1-6. After
regrouping, they dominated the final set winning 6-2. All other positions had many opportunities to win close games and turn the momentum. Connor Eichenauer battled back from a close first set loss to win the second set 6-3. The senior played a long
game at 1-1 in the final set, but lost the game and the momentum. The 2 doubles team of Matthew Pegg and Heath Dierks played a solid first set winning the final 4 games to start out 6-3. They got up 2-1 when Peru battled back to force a third set. The final set saw the Manchester unable to mount a consistent attack as they fell 3-6. At 2 and 3 singles, Max Karg and Brayton Spann each played well for parts of their matches. “We had our chances, but needed to finish some crucial points. Peru’s addition of a strong exchange student at 2 singles really boosted their team strength and chance to compete with us. Luck or not, Jose Morales was a nice pickup for their team.” The Squires look forward to a sectional rematch on early October. The Squires return to
action Tuesday at Bluffton and next Thursday at Huntington North.

Coach Jeff Hobson commented “I was pleased with how some individuals played tonight, but overall I was disappointed with our effort as a team. We had a game postponed due to weather and we’ve missed some practice time this past week. I felt like it showed up tonight on the field” Hobson went on to say “I thought that Tanner Proffitt played a great game in goal tonight but we left him exposed way too many times. We start two freshman in the back and they are just learning how to play their positions. We will get better.”
The Rage return to action next week when the varsity team hosts the Kokomo Home School team on Wednesday, September 3rd at 5:30pm at the Morrett Sports Complex.Add a Comment
