The Manchester girls' basketball team was in control for much of their conference match-up with Southwood, but the Knights dominated the fourth quarter to pull away with a 38-32 win.
 
Southwood trailed the Squires 28-23 late in the third quarter, but out scored Manchester 10-4 in the fourth quarter to get the win.
 
"We were down in the first half, but we did a good job of spreading the floor and getting to the free throw line in the second half," Southwood coach Dallas Duggan said.
 
Manchester got off to a quick start, taking an 8-0 lead, but Southwood cut into that lead with two baskets late in the first, and the first five points of the second quarter to cut it to 10-9.

“Michael Wirsing went 4-0 and won his first county championship,” said Manchester wrestling coach Jerimiah Maggart. “We’re happy to have him out and we’ve been telling him all year that 106 is one of those weight classes where you may have a couple forfeits or you may have a couple matches. He was able to get two pins, so it was a big day for him, an exciting day, and we’re proud of him for getting those wins."
