HOLSTEIN - Ridge View came out with a lot of intensity in the first quarter and, thanks to a 12-point outburst by Isaiah Miller, held a 16-8 lead over a tough Kingsley-Pierson team in Western Valley Conference boys' basketball action here on Friday.

However, K-P, coached by Aurelia native Adam Rapp, came back strong in the second quarter to grab a 29-28 lead at the half. The Panthers made some defensive adjustments and were able to limit Miller and increase their lead throughout the second half, winning the game 56-45.

Miller had another double-double night for the Raptors, scoring 23 points and grabbing an incredible 18 rebounds, and Seth Johnson added eight points and dished out three assists for Ridge View. Kris Alesch grabbed six boards and Miller also led his team in assists with three.

Tate Rohde and Colin Henrich provided a solid one-two scoring punch for K-P, with Rohde tallying 19 points and Henrich good for 16. Henrich also led his team in assists and steals with four apiece.

Ridge View sank 19-47 field goals for 40 percent, and was 9-12 from the foul line. K-P netted 24-65 shots for 37 percent, and converted 10-13 free throws.

Ridge View coach Shannon Tesch said that overall he was satisfied with the Raptors' performance against a quality opponent.

The Raptors are now 4-6 on the season and 1-3 in the Western Valley Conference, and will host West Monona in Schaller on Saturday.
