BILLINGS — After trailing for much of the first half Friday in a loser-out game at the State C tournament, Manhattan Christian took the momentum heading into halftime.

Bella Triemstra banked in a long 3 at the buzzer to give the Eagles a 19-18 lead against Plentywood. But the Wildcats regained the lead in the opening minute of the second half and didn’t trail again in a 50-43 victory in First Interstate Arena.
