The Manchester boys’ basketball team was hosting Tippecanoe Valley on Friday and it was more than just another game. Valley was bringing a 3-0 Three Rivers Conference conference record into the game with the Squires needing a win to draw even in the loss column for the TRC lead.

Top that with Valley being the former home of Chainey Zolman, plus Chase Fierstos getting his first start since being injured just two games into the season and the Squires were flying sky high.
Perhaps things were flying a little too high the first half the Squires trailed 32-19 at the break before a thrilling second half comeback gave Manchester a 56-51 win.

Valley quickly led 3-0 before a Zolman bucket and two Koehl Fluke free throws had the Squires trailing just 5-4 when things unraveled a bit. Valley would score 8 straight to grab a 13-4 lead halfway through the quarter as the Squires didn’t score again until the 2:52 mark when Cameron Brandenburg drained a three pointer that was followed by a Zolman free throw and a Braydon Sewell bucket to cut the Valley lead to 13-10 by the end of the first quarter.
