WILLMAR -- The Ridgewater Lady Warriors can't shoot free throws, at least not very well.

No doubt, better gun sights at the line would have helped on Wednesday night in a 82-66 loss to Anoka-Ramsey in the women's MCAC Southern Division opener.

"Free-throw shooting, that's the difference," said coach Carrie Ogdahl after the setback. "We made 7 of 19, the same as our three-point shooting. You make those free throws and it changes the complexion of the game."

The Lady Warriors lugged a 57-percent rating on free throws coming in.

The Rams (1-0, 12-3) led by as much as 35-13 in the first half and 44-29 at halftime.

Kelsey Guetter worked inside for 20 points and 10 rebounds to lead Ridgewater (0-1, 6-8). Brianna Jacobson added 12 points.
