The rematch would favor the Rams, as they scored 7 points in each quarter to take a 14-10 lead at the half.
Ringgold jumped all over the Bears in the third, scoring 10 points in the frame to increase their lead to 24-15. The pesky Bears battled back in the fourth and Ringgold lost its scoring touch. The Rams would face their first over time game this season.
Ringgold would outscore Clairton 9-3 in the extra period to win the game 34-28. Nick Peccon sealed the win with two clutch free throws and led all Ringgold scorers with 9 points.
