The Warriors (2-3, 9-10) didn’t have the best of shooting performances, but they owned double-digit leads in both halves.

“We played good defense and our plan was to take off as much time as we could on each possession,” said Ridgewater coach Bob Knutson. “We’ve put together two nice games. We’ve come together and have good chemistry and are getting healthy.”

The Warriors beat Western Wisconsin Tech 87-83 on the road last Wednesday.

Ridgewater shot 45 percent from the field in the first half before slowing down to 33 percent in the final 20 minutes of play, allowing the Golden Rams (2-4, 10-9) to get back in it. Anoka-Ramsey, averaging 72 ppg, made four 3-pointers in the second half, but was only 5-for-17 inside the arc.

Jake Rambow canned a trio of 3-pointers and added a two-point bucket to score another 11 points for the Warriors. Beau Herrig pulled down a game-high 11 rebounds.

Ridgewater hosts Fergus Falls on Wednesday at 8 p.m.
