Steel Valley paid visit to Ringgold Middle School on Wednesday afternoon for a game against the 8th grade Rams.

Ringgold took an early lead in the first quarter and controlled play for much of the first half. The Rams were head 15-11 at the break.

In the second half, Steel Valley started to gain momentum and turnovers proved to be costly. In spite of the miscues, both teams were neck and neck down the stretch.

Unfortunately the Ironmen had the better of play over the final two minutes and were able to head home with a slim 29-25 victory.

Daryl Tolliver was Ringgold’s leading scorer with 11 points.

The Rams will play their third and final game of the week on Friday against Jefferson Middle School.
