The Warriors, who beat Fergus Falls in double overtime on Jan. 17 in Willmar, shot 51 percent from the field in the first half, but only 29 percent in the second half.

"Our teams are evenly matched, but we just went cold in the final five minutes," said Ridgewater coach Bob Knutson. "We dominated the boards and got second and third chances, but our shooting went down the tubes in the final five minutes."

Cory Nietfeld added another double-double of 14 points and 11 rebounds for the Warriors, who are at Minneapolis Saturday for a 3 p.m. game.
