Allderdice High School
Ringgold High School
The Lady Rams hosted Allderdice on Friday night in their first home game of the 2016-2017 season.
Ringgold started strong in the opening quarter, frustrating Allderdice with their defensive and scoring 15 points, led by Nya Adams’ 6 points, en route to an 8-point lead. The Dragons found their rhythm in the second quarter and battled back to hold a 2-point lead at the half.
Allderdice came out firing in the third, using an 8-0 run to take a 10-point lead and forcing a Ringgold time out with 6:14 remaining in the quarter. Out of the time out, Ringgold would go on a 19-7 run of its own and a Nya Adams’ 3-pointer at the buzzer gave the Lady Rams a 41-39 lead heading into the final period.
The final period was back-and-forth with several lead changes, but Ringgold hung on and pulled out a 4-point victory.
Ashley Briscoe scored a team-high 18 points to go along with 15 rebounds, while Taylor Costa added 12 points, including two 3’s. Nya Adams finished with 11 points for the Rams.
With the win, Ringgold improves to 2-2 on the year. The Lady Rams are back in action on Tuesday on the road against rival Belle Vernon Area. Game time is 7:30 p.m.
