Opening the second half, both teams came out showing a great display of 3-ball shooting. At one point, the teams swapped three-point shots on four consecutive trips down the floor.

The crowd seemed evenly split between the two schools. As one team made a three, a section of the gym would yell, "WHOOP" as the ball popped the nets. When the other team matched that made basket with its own 3-ball, another section of the gym went, "WHOOP!"

It was a pretty amazing thing to witness fans that much into the game.

Ridgeway went on an 11-0 run early in the fourth quarter, taking control en route to a 69-55 victory.

Up next for Ridgeway is a home game against Hamilton Friday in the first round of the Region 8 tournament.
