NEW FRANKLIN — The Manchester High School football team (2-0) continued its winning streak with a 30-19 win over the visiting Woodridge High School Bulldogs (1-1) Sept. 6.

The game also was the annual Hall of Fame game, with five new inductees enshrined into the Manchester Athletic Hall of Fame at halftime.
