Game Recap

Ringgold hosted McGuffey for a Thursday afternoon match-up with the Highlanders.

The Rams trailed 9-5 after the first quarter, but came out on fire in the second quarter to take a 16-11 lead at halftime.

Ringgold built on their lead in third, with a 3-pointer by Demetrius Butler and two baskets by Dylan Clipp to have a 8-point lead heading into the final quarter. McGuffey made some adjustments and rallied to close the gap.

The Rams led 27-26 with under a minute to play, but an untimely turnover gave the ball back to McGuffey. After a McGuffey timeout, the Highlanders got the shot they wanted, but it rimmed out. Their big man was there to clean up the offensive glass and scored on a put back to give McGuffey a 28-27 lead and the win.

Final score: McGuffey 28, Ringgold 27.

Butler led the Rams with 12 points, while Clipp chipped in with 9 points of his own.

Ringgold is back in action on Monday, December 19 when they travel to Canon McMillan.
