CHURCHILL — As Manhattan Christian and Manhattan wrap up the regular season this week, coaches from each team were hoping for the same thing Tuesday night in the Memorial Event Center — a highly competitive match.

It’s exactly what they got as defending State C champion Manhattan Christian trailed for much of the first two sets before rallying. The Eagles were pushed throughout the non-conference match before posting a 25-22, 26-24, 25-16 victory.
