On Tuesday, April 22, the Manual boys lacrosse team hosted Oldham County at Manual Stadium for senior night. Manual would end up losing to Oldham County, 12-13, in a game that came down to the last two minutes.

Manual got off to a slow start in the game, trailing Oldham County 6-1 in just the first eight minutes. They eventually cut the lead down to 1 at half-time, making the score 7-6, Oldham County.

The two teams battled the rest of the game, each taking turns with the lead. It got down to the last 2 minutes of the game and the score was even at 12-12. Oldham county ended up finding the back of the net with less than a minute to play. Though the Oldham county goal was quite defeating, the Crimsons had to keep their heads in the game and make one last effort to send the game into overtime.

“It sent a feeling of defeat throughout all of us when we saw the ball hit the back of the net, but there was still time left to tie the game back up. We had to stay focused,” Kevin Jacob (12) said.

Manual’s efforts were not good enough and they fell one goal short of Oldham County, losing 12-13.

Despite the disappointing loss, Manual players still enjoyed themselves during senior night. A total of seven seniors are on the team; Greg Healy, Matthew Cissel, Parker McGuffey, Ben Speelman, Brent Wesley, Nevin Aviles, and Kevin Jacob.

“I just started playing lacrosse sophomore year. I made a lot of friends and had an overall great experience playing for Manual. I’ll never forget the times I spent with this great group of guys,” Nevin Aviles (12) said.

The Manual seniors would end their season with a losing record but are happy with how they competed. Stay tuned to @theCSPNsports for updates on their tournament progress.

The duPont Manual Varsity boys’ soccer team defeated the St. Francis Wyverns on Tuesday night by a score of 5-2.

Last night was the Crimsons’ final home game of the season, and featured a special halftime Senior Night ceremony with Principal Mayes.

The Wyverns were quick to set the pace in the opening moments, and drew first blood when midfielder Abas Isgowe scored off of a shot from the top of the box after a volley from Manual goalkeeper Andrew Hagan (#00,10).

However, just 12 minutes later, Hunter Guthrie (#5,11) evened the score after keeping the ball on-side and rocketing it into the back of the net.

The rest of the first half was played very defensively by both sides, until Guthrie stole the ball from the St. Francis defense and scored again, to put the Crimsons up 2-1 at the half.

At halftime, Seniors Hishem Alsalman, Scott Clark, Isaac Draper, Greg Healey, Phillip Lentsch, Parker McGuffey, Thomas Neuteufel, Michael Puffer, Sam Ross, Alex Rubino, Connor Shea, Zeke Smith, Erick Tafel, Lucas Taylor and Andrew Wood, along with their parents, were honored on the field and greeted by Principal Mayes and the underclassmen of the boys’ soccer team.

While the first half may have been fairly even, the outcome of the second half was different as the Crimsons practically put on a goal scoring clinic for the spectators.

St. Francis started scoring again when three minutes in Andrew Thurstone scored off of a free kick to even the score at 2. That’s when the Crimsons picked up the pace.

With 35 minutes remaining, Greg Healy (#13,12) scored on a header off of a corner kick. Not two minutes later, Manual defender Noah Braden (#23,11) drew a foul inside the box, resulting in a penalty kick. Healy took the shot and went to the bottom left and slipped the ball past the Wyverns goalkeeper.

Just over 28 minutes into the half, Jason Kidwell (#1, 10) crossed the ball to Riley Hook (#25,10) who scored, putting the finishing touches on the Crimsons’ victory.

The win put Manual at 5-6-1 this season. They face the St. Xavier Tigers on Thursday night.

The boys’ basketball team won against Central High School on Friday, February 8 at Manual for their annual Senior Night.

The annual night recognized the seniors of the team and put them in the spotlight. It was a night dedicated to all of their contribution and hardwork put into the team over the years, hence the name Senior Night.

James Just, head coach of the boys’ varsity basketball team, believed it was a good night despite all the emotions. “It differs every year, but I think Friday was a good night. The boys don’t tend to be as emotional as the girls typically are, but there is still a very strong attachment between the seniors and the younger players,” Just said.

Raleigh Dixon (11) is among one of the many players who will greatly miss the seniors as they say their farewell. “I love the seniors, so I’ll be sad to see them go out,” Dixon said.
