The  Manchester Boys Soccer team swept both of their games this week.

On Tuesday, Sept. 4 the Dutchmen traveled to Northwest to take on the Mounties. They emerged with a 3-0 win, seniors Calvin Daniels and Lenin Feirro (2) had the goals.

On Thursday, Sept. 6, the Dutchmen hosted the Onsted Wildcats at home, the game was ended at the end of the first half due to the mercy rule, 8-0.

With a short bench for the Wildcats, the Dutchmen were able to wear them down quickly. Four goals were scored within the first eight minutes, all coming from Fierro. Daniels got on the board with 12:42 remaining, firing home a rebound. He would add two more for a hat trick of his own with the scoring rounded off by senior midfielder River Spitler.

The Dutchmen are in action next on Sept. 12, traveling to Blissfield.
