The Lady Warriors (1-1, 7-8) had three of their interior players score in double digits and as a team Ridgewater outrebounded Fergus Falls, 47-39.

"We dominated pretty well inside," said Ridgewater coach Carrie Ogdahl.

Brianna Jacobson had a double-double of 11 points and 10 rebounds, Kelsey Guetter added 15 points and seven rebounds, and Alison Mason had 13 points and seven rebounds.

Even the Lady Warriors' perimeter players got into the act. Guard Whitley Strei had eight rebounds and scored 10 points. Alii Holt contributed 11 points.

Ridgewater's first half was one of runs. The Lady Warriors had a couple of 10-point leads in the first half, but the Spartans cut each of those down to two points, including at the end of the half, when Ridgewater took a slim 38-36 advantage into the break.

For Fergus Falls, Whitney Moore scored 17 points. Whitney Swenson, a Yellow Medicine East graduate, scored four points and grabbed seven rebounds.
