A close game throughout, East Ridge held on to defeat the Raiders by three points as Hannah Pignato scored a team-high 14 points, with Brianna Walker recording 12 points.

The victory pulled the Raptors (3-20 overall, 1-14 SEC) into a ninth-place tie with Hastings (1-22, 1-14) in the league rankings. The Raiders have lost nine in a row since recording their lone win of the season -- against East Ridge in Hastings -- on Jan. 12.
