McGuffey High School
Ringgold High School
The Ringgold 7th Grade Boys Basketball team hosted McGuffey on Friday afternoon for their second game of the year against the Highlanders. The Rams dropped a heartbreaker in their first match-up against McGuffey and were looking for payback the second time around.
Ringgold held a slim 10-8 lead after the first quarter, but used a stellar defensive performance to shutout McGuffey in the second and take a 16-8 lead into the half.
McGuffey refused to go away however, and outscored the Rams in third and only trailed by 6 heading into the fourth quarter. The Rams once again tightened up on their defense and held the Highlanders to only one more score for the rest of the game.
Final score:Ringgold 25, McGuffey 17.
Nick Peccon led the Rams with 8 points, while Jesus Davenport added 7 points.
Next up for Ringgold is their final road game of the year, when they travel to Canon McMillan on Monday, December 19.
