The Ridge View girls defeated Westwood 37-28 in a defensive struggle in Western Valley Conference girls basketball action Thursday night.
The Raptors outscored the Rebels 25-10 in the second half to overcome an 18-12 halftime deficit, including a 14-2 scoring advantage in the fourth quarter.
Roxanne Grundmeier paced Ridge View's scoring with 12 points, while Nicole Snyder scored 11, and Egypt Clayton, the focus of much defensive attention from Westwood, tallied seven points.
Grundmeier, Snyder, and Brooke Wiese led the Raptors in rebounding with five apiece. Clayton and Grundmeier ped Ridge View on defense with five steals each, and Clayton totaled five blocked shots. Wiese had three assists to lead that department.
Ridge View sank 13-44 field goals for a chilly 30 percent, and cashed in 9-13 free throws.
"Egypt Clayton scored her 1,000th point but it didn't come easy as Westwood really tried to take her out of her game," said Ridge View coach Ken Slater. "We were a little greedy in the first half and forced passes inside, which led to turnovers.
"The ofense was non-existent until the second half after our defense picked up. We finally got into a rhythm and were more aggressive and it led to a win."
