“We got off to a slow start and they were just on fire,” said Mountain Ridge head coach Valery Broadwater. “Sam Hoban had a big game for them. In the second quarter, Sarah got hot, and once we got the lead we were able to maintain it.

“This is a good win for us. Keyser is a very good team, it’s our third game of the week and we have another one tomorrow. I’m beginning to feel like an NBA team.”

Mountain Ridge (16-3 overall, 11-3 in the AMAC) will host Allegany today at 6 p.m. Keyser (12-9, 8-7) has concluded its regular season.
