Lomega got its final tuneup for its conference tournament Tuesday night with its fourth straight blowout win.

Class B’s second-ranked Lady Raiders doubled up visiting Ringwood 80-40.

“We shot it pretty well again tonight,” said Lomega coach Kevin Lewallen.

Lomega knocked down 15 3-pointers as it improved to 16-3 on the season.

The Lady Raiders made 17 last Thursday in a win over Drummond and 18 the next night against DCLA.

Since losing to No. 1 Hammon in the finals of the Lady Warriors’ own tournament, Lomega has beaten four foes by an average of 49 points.

Against Ringwood, Lomega started the barrage early and kept it steady throughout.

Emma Duffy made three treys in the first quarter as the team built a 25-7 lead.

It grew to 47-16 by halftime as the Lady Raiders made four more treys in the second quarter.

Two of them were from Duffy, who scored all of her 17 points in the first half.

Mady Meier also scored 17 points, thanks in part to three 3-pointers.

Megan Dunigan (three treys) added 11 points and Courtney Fox (two treys) 10 more.

Third quarter, Ringwood get best of Raiders

Ringwood’s dominant third quarter Tuesday allowed it to get out of Lomega with a win.

The Red Devils broke open a tie game with a 20-9 run as part of a 62-54 victory.

Lomega fell to 11-8 with the loss. It was the Raiders’ second straight defeat.

The Red Devils’ trio of Jacob Briggs, Osvaldo Lora and Ethan Ratzlaff combined for 46 points.

Briggs led the way with 17 and Lora 16.

Lomega got a team-high 16 points from Noah Snowden while Riley Lumpkin added 14 and Tate Ott 11.
