NEWBERRY - Trailing early, the Manistique Emerald volleyball team rallied to beat the Newberry Indians 3-2 on the road Tuesday night.

Dropping the opener 25-20, the Emeralds dominated the second set winning by the score of 25-11.

Issues serving the ball by Manistique set in early and often in the third set and by the end Newberry gained the advantage taking the third set 25-21. Manistique tied the match with a convincing 25- 19 victory in set four then finished the Indians off 15-10 in set five for the nonconference win.

“We got down early, struggled serving the ball at times but bounced back in the last two sets to finish them off,” Coach Amy Nixon said. “This team never gives up, and that is a major advantage for us this season.”
