River Ridge 60, Capital 38: Jazzlynn Brewster had a game-high 16 points and seven steals and freshman point guard MaKenna Schultz added 12 points to lead the Hawks to their first 2A Evergreen Conference victory.

With its full-court pressure defense, the Hawks forced the Cougars into early turnovers and jumped out to an early 24-10 lead following a 3-pointer by Schultz. In all, River Ridge had 15 steals, with seven coming from Brewster. River Ridge shot 51 percent (21-for-41) from the floor.

River Ridge coach Jackie Robinson said Friday’s game was “very important” given its 33-point loss to W.F. West in its opener Tuesday.

“I wanted to see how the team would respond,” Robinson said. “That would tell a lot about the team.”
