Ridgewater hit two consecutive shots to tie the game. Then Ridgewater got the ball back after a Minnesota West turnover and Chelsea Voorhees made the winning basket with about 20 seconds remaining. The Bluejays had a shot to tie or win, but it rolled off the rim at the buzzer. Ridgewater went on a 6-0 run to close out the victory.

The Lady Warriors (3-8, 10-15) overcame a 31-28 halftime deficit.

"We've been working hard and it's good to see us get a win," said Ridgewater coach Carrie Ogdahl.

Ridgewater got a bulk of its scoring from the post with Kelsey Guetter leading the way with 14 points. Kari Caspers followed with 12 and Alison Mason had 10. Guard Alii Holt chipped in nine points and Voorhees had eight.

Sam Lynn scored a game-high 18 points to pace Minnesota West (6-4, 14-10). LoRel Christensen followed with 12 points.

The Lady Warriors finish the season at home Wednesday against Riverland.
