West Ridge wins 3, Good Hope takes 1 in bball battle
West Ridge and Good Hope basketball went to battle at West Ridge on Thursday with West Ridge winning 3-of-4 games on the night. WRMS won the 7th grade girls game 25-22.
The West Ridge 7th grade boys took a 35-25 decision and the Lady Patriot 8th-grade team beat Good Hope 43-8 which included holding GHMS 8th grade to only three points in the first half.
In the 8th-grade boys game, Good Hope flexed its muscle. The Colonels began the game on a 14-0 run to take full control and won the game 48-13.
“One thing we preached before the game was to start the game the right way,” GHMS boys coach Jared Peters said. “We have not been doing that. We had been starting games a little lackadaisical. So that was good.” Good Hope 8th-grade boys return to the court on Saturday, Dec. 2 when they play Carroll in the Lee Junior High tournament at 10 a.m. in Monroe.
