East Ridge Comeback Downs Woodbury: Boys Basketball

Down by more than 20 points, Raptors prevail over Royals.

The East Ridge boys basketball team gave its fans a memorable Christmas present Friday night with a 72-67 come-from-behind victory over crosstown rivals Woodbury.  

Down by as many as 24 points in the first half, the Raptors returned for the last period motivated... and dominated the Royals to cut the lead to five with three minutes remaining.  

Lead by Jake Knupp, who scored several important 3-point baskets, East Ridge sealed the victory with foul shots in the last minute.  

Knupp lead all scorers with 24 points. The Royals' Renard Suggs and Mario Franco each had 15.

Dave, it doesn't matter what you photograph - you always make it memorable and fun. I seldom read the story - your shots tell me usually enough of the event...I'm still laughing at the Warrior Dash shots!
