The Tigers went 8 of 10 at the charity stripe in the fourth quarter and picked up victory No. 1 on the season Monday evening at the Ridgeland Thanksgiving Classic.

Ringgold took a 29-23 lead at halftime, but managed just nine points in the third quarter as the Pioneers cut the deficit down to 38-37 heading into the fourth.

But Jayden Williams stepped up with a big 3-pointer and went 4 for 4 from the line in the final period. Alex Otting and O'Reilly Matthews each made 2 of 2 free throws down the stretch to help seal the victory.

Matthews finished with a game-high 18 points. Cooper Sexton scored nine, and Williams and Otting added eight apiece. Brevin Massengale finished with six points, while the trio of Gage Long, Caden Dodson and Luke Rominger each chipped in with two.

Ringgold (1-1) will take on Ridgeland Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. to conclude the first week of the regular season.
