Underdogs shut out third-seeded Ridgway

October 26, 2011

RIDGWAY — Labeled as the underdog heading into Tuesday's playoff game may have been an advantage for the Lady Raiders.

"Like I told my girls after the game, I'm not sure that maybe the best team won, but I know that the team that had the most heart did today," Lady Raiders head coach Chip Mason said. "I was very happy with the effort they put forth."
