The East Ridge girls basketball team was no match for host Fridley on Monday night in the north metro as the Raptors were walloped, 67-17, by their hosts in a non-conference matchup.

No ERHS player managed more than four points in the contest as guards Hannah Pignato and Allison Berry joined forward Katie Hagberg atop the Raptors' paltry scoresheet, while Tigers center Caitlin McKernon nearly matched the visitor's point total with 16 herself.

The matchup was East Ridge's final tune-up before the Raptors (1-3) open the Suburban East Conference schedule with a home game against White Bear Lake, the sixth-ranked team in Class AAAA, on Friday, Dec. 11.
