The Ringgold 7th grade boys basketball team was back at home on Wednesday, looking to extend their winning ways from earlier in the week. The Rams squared off against the Ironmen of Steel Valley in their second game of the week.
Steel Valley jumped out to an early lead, ahead 5-1 after one quarter of play. The Rams would battle back in the second and tie the game at 7 heading into the half.
The Rams would continue to play well but after a back-and-forth third quarter, the Ironmen held a narrow five-point lead. Maddox Suss paced the Rams with all 6 points in the period.
The fourth quarter would be overshadowed more by what happened between the whistles than on the court and the game would end prematurely with :17 seconds remaining and Steel Valley taking a 28-21 victory.
Ringgold will play again on Friday at home against Jefferson.
