The Ringgold 8th grade boys basketball team was back at home on Monday, facing off against Pleasant Hills.
The Rams came out sloppy to open the game, struggling to protect the ball and allowing Pleasant Hills to get easy buckets in transition. The Jaguars opened up a 19-3 lead after six minutes.
Pleasant Hills started to pull away in the second quarter, outscoring the Rams 9-2 to take a 28-5 lead at the half.
A 17-9 run by the Jaguars in the third quarter put the game out of reach. The Rams would fall on the day 53-14.
Zach Cheplic finished with 6 points to lead Ringgold.
The boys have a quick turnaround and are back in action again on Wednesday against Steel Valley.
