CLOQUET - The Ridgewater women’s basketball team scored eight overtime points to outlast Fond du Lac 74-70 on Saturday.

The Warriors lost a five-point halftime lead but hung on to tie the score at the end of regulation.

“It could have gone either way,” said Ridgewater coach Carrie Ogdahl. “We have to figure out how to keep teams off the free-throw line, but I’ll take a three-win week anytime.”

The Warriors (6-3) also beat AFLBS on Tuesday and Central Lakes on Friday.

Ridgewater’s Erica Melbie scored 16 points and had seven rebounds.
