Red Bank (19-5), ranked fifth, mounted a fourth-quarter rally with senior guard Taylor Crystian scoring 10 of her 21 points over the closing eighth minutes, marked by a 6 of 7 showing at the foul line.

Senior point guard Kemari Reynolds contributed 13 points and went 4 of 6 from the stripe in the fourth quarter for Manchester.
