Ridgewood and Annawan will meet in a de facto Lincoln Trail Conference Tournament semifinal on Friday as the Spartans and Braves picked up 85-62 and 57-31 wins over ROWVA/Williamsfield and Galva, respectively, Tuesday night.

Both teams are now 3-0 in Pool A of the tournament and play Friday night in Toulon. The winner will earn a spot in the LTC Tournament Championship against either Wethersfield or Mercer County, who also play on Friday. Annawan beat Ridgewood 52-34 earlier this month.

"We shot ourselves in the foot early in the conference season so this is a chance to get redemption," Ridgewood coach Casey Adamson said.

The Spartans' win over ROWVA/Williamsfield (6-18) saw Jared Smith and Briar Greenman go off for a combined 50 points in the victory Tuesday night.

"We knew we had those two bad shooting games with Annawan and West Central but knew we weren't that team," Adamson said. "We got through it and it's in the past."

Ridgewood (15-7) also forced 30 turnovers which pushed the tempo up even further.

"Our last handful of games we've picked up the pace a bit," Adamson said. "Our defense is definitely feeding our offense and we're starting to rebound. Everything is panning out."

Annawan (21-2) topped Galva (14-10) behind 21 points from Dalton Coppejans. Head coach Alex Coppejans is expecting a tough challenges from the Spartans on Friday.

"It will be fun. It'll be like an old school semifinal game in the LTC tournament. I'm happy it worked out that way honestly because those are the fun ones for the boys," Alex Coppejans said. "(Ridgewood) can do a lot of different things offensively and defensively so we've got to be at our best."

Galva got 19 points from Mason Kaiser against Annawan.

ROWVA/Williamsfield was led by Jacob Varner's 14 points. The Cougars made 14 3-pointers as a team.
