Indians rout Scots on the road

By Grant Guggisberg

After blowing a lead Tuesday against Wichita Northwest, the Manhattan High soccer team had plenty of built-up frustration Thursday night in Topeka.

Highland Park was on the other end of that, and it got ugly.

The Indians took a 6-0 lead to halftime and the game was called 17 minutes into the second half with Manhattan winning 10-0.

This team has fared well on the road all year, and Thursday was no exception.

Jonathan Turnley had three goals and two assists on the night, with Eric Gray, Luc Pohlman, Evan Williams, Brandon Religa, Peter Maier, Jacob Stutheit and Michael Cossey all adding goals in the blowout.

“The boys responded well to Tuesday night’s setback,” head coach Frank Alonso said. “They were focused and motivated.”

Manhattan only allowed one shot to the Scots, and led 4-0 after 11 minutes.

With the road schedule complete for Manhattan, the Indians finish the regular season with two home matches. They play Topeka West on Monday and finish with Junction City on Thursday. Both matches will be played at Anneberg Park at 6:15 p.m.
