WILLMAR — Anoka-Ramsey bumped its lead over Ridgewater up to 14 points—the largest margin of the night—with 1:44 to play in the third quarter. It had been a game almost completely dominated by the Golden Rams until that point.

From there on, though, it was all Ridgewater.

The Warriors outscored the Rams 28-5 in the fourth quarter to come away with a 73-64 win at Ridgewater College on Wednesday night.

Heidi Sellmann delivered a memorable performance, scoring 18 points, grabbing 22 rebounds and adding nine assists to finish just one assist shy of a triple-double for the Warriors.

Abby Oberg scored a team-high 21 points and hit four 3-pointers.

Ridgewater held Anoka-Ramsey to just 1-for-14 shooting from the field in the fourth quarter as it pulled off a 24-point swing on the scoreboard in just over 10 minutes.

The win was No. 300 in the career of Warriors head coach Jodi Holleman between her time at Hancock High School and Ridgewater.

Morgan Swenson recorded a double-double with 13 points and 13 rebounds as the Warriors improved to 5-2 in MCAC play and 9-7 overall.
