Hounds drop to 4-11

The struggles continued on Tuesday night for the Manchester Greyhounds varsity boys squad as they traveled to Fayetteville for a Southern Hills Athletic Conference match up with the first-place Rockets. A rough second quarter put the Greyhounds in a hole they couldn’t climb out of as they fell to 4-11 on the season with a 66-54 defeat.

After being tied at 14 after the first quarter, the Hounds were outscored 18-9 in the second and never recovered in suffering their fifth conference loss against just two wins.

Even in defeat, Manchester got an outstanding performance from junior Kaulen Cox, who was inserted into the starting lineup and responded with 19 points, including five three-point goals. Colton Thornburg added 15 for the Greyhounds, as he went 7 for 8 from the free throw line.

In the win, Fayetteville was led by 17 points from Max Lanham and 13 from Caleb Dowers.

The Hounds will look to get back on a winning track on Friday night as they will host county rival West Union in an SHAC game that is also Homecoming Night in Manchester. On Tuesday, Feb. 2, the Hounds will host another all-county SHAC contest when they welcome to town the North Adams Green Devils.
