Ridge View girls beat OABCIG

Ridge View went on a 21-to-seven scoring run in the third quarter to lay the foundation for its 53-39 non-conference girls’ basketball win over OABCIG in Ida Grove Dec. 20.

Ridge View had leads of 11-10 after one quarter and 18-16 at halftime before going up by 12 points, 37-25, after three quarters of play. The Raptors had a two-point scoring advantage, 16-14, in the fourth quarter.

"It seemed like we couldn't make a shot in the second quarter,” noted coach Brian Bode. “I think, the final five minutes (of the second quarter) or so, we were held scoreless. Coming out of halftime, we just emphasized getting the right looks and getting quality offensive possessions. We were able to make a nice run in the third quarter."
