Ridge View sank 25-69 field goals in the game for 36 percent, including a 3-12 effort from the three-point line. The Raptors made 12-21 free throws.

"We were able to get our fifth straight win against Kingsley-Pierson on Friday night," noted Ridge View coach Ken Slater. "The win boosts our record to 6-5 overall and 3-1 in the conference.

"We opened the game aggressively offensively and defensively and got up on them. After the quick start we fell into one of our lulls which lasted through the third quarter. In the fourth quarter we were able to shoot ourselves out of the lull and our defense intensified.

"It was a good game in which we were able to get some more play out of our reserves and I thought they played hard and executed pretty well in the fourth quarter."

The Ridge View teams host West Monona in Schaller on Saturday.
