Ringgold High School
Ringgold took on Fort Couch in 7th grade basketball action on Thursday afternoon in their 2017 home opener.
Fort Couch jumped out to an early lead, holding a 10-4 advantage after the first quarter. After losing starter Dayne Wilson to an injury, the Rams regrouped and outscored the Panthers 11-5 in the second quarter to tie the game at 15 heading into the half.
In the third, Jordan Mayer knocked down a pair of 3’s to give the Rams a 6-point lead heading into the final period. Unfortunately, Ringgold would not score again and Fort Couch would use a 19-0 run in the fourth quarter to earn the victory.
Mayer finished with 13 points to lead Ringgold.
The boys will be back in action on Monday when they travel to Trinity. Game time is set for 4:45pm.
