More news about: Manchester

Anderson University pays a visit to Carl W. Burt Memorial Field Saturday, Nov. 16, for the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference and overall season finale.

Game specifics: Kickoff is 1 p.m. … Manchester University's football program honors 20 players, five student athletic trainers and one student assistant coach prior to game time as part of Senior Day 2013 festivities … Live audio, statistics and video will be accessible at www.muspartans.com, the Internet home of Manchester University athletics.

Spartan Shorts: It's the 68th edition of the Bronze Ball game. MU trails 45-21-1 but the Black and Gold have won four of the last five including a 38-0 win last year at Anderson. The Ravens claimed the most recent decision at Macholtz Stadium on AU's campus in 2010 by a 37-34 count … With one game to go, MU still holds high residence on some of the NCAA Division III statistical charts. The Spartans are within the top 10 of two team and three individual categories. Freshman return specialist Dakota Nelson (Fairfield, Indiana) and senior linebacker Dylin Kennedy (North Manchester, Ind.) spotlight the individual marks. Nelson is fifth in punt return touchdowns (one) and third in yards per return (18.7), while Kennedy is fourth in solo tackles per game (7.4). Along team lines, the Black and Gold's 19.13 yards-per-punt-return average is third-best as is their 3.56 penalties per game for lowest in the nation … On the conference statistics, Kennedy is fifth-best in overall tackles per game (9.2) as is senior quarterback Nick Williams (Fort Wayne, Ind.) in rushing yards per game (51.7) and touchdowns (six) … Nelson added his name to an impressive list on the Manchester University annals with his performance against Hanover College last weekend. He hauled in 10 catches for 137 yards and a touchdown to aid the Spartans in a hard-fought 24-21 loss at Hanover. His double-digit catch total marked the 18th time a Spartan receiver has pulled in 10-receptions-or-more in a game. Nelson, who moved into seventh on the all-time single season reception list (53), was the benefactor of a strong outing from sophomore quarterback Logan Haston (Avon, Ind.) as well as Williams. Haston ended nine-for-12 with 161 yards and a touchdown toss as well as a rushing score … Williams hit a personal milestone last weekend, too, recording back-to-back 1,000 yard passing seasons … Kennedy continues to close in on one as well. He's 11 tackles shy of 200 for his career.
