By Eric Christiansen
 
Manchester's girls' basketball team appeared to be headed to their seventh win of the season Saturday night at Northfield, but the Norse outscored the Squires 18-3 in the fourth quarter to pull out a 46-40 Three Rivers Conference win.
 
The win put Northfield at 5-2, and 2-0 in the TRC, while Manchester dropped to 6-3, and 1-1 in conference play.
 
"At halftime, we told them to go out and be aggressive and just hit their shots. Sometimes they struggle with that," Northfield coach Melissa Allen said. "After this game, I think it's in their heads that they know they can do it."
