Kane girls basketball had plenty of chances from the foul line and took advantage of enough of them to take a 44-27 win over Ridgway Friday night at Ridgway Area High School.
Kane was 22 for 38 from the foul line while Ridgway was just 2 for 5. Ridgway didn't shoot a free throw until the second half.

Ridgway boys basketball opened 2015 with a 53-24 win over Sheffield Tuesday night at Ridgway Area High School.
"No matter who were playing, we want to get better," Ridgway coach Anthony Allegretto said. "You never know what's going to happen. A team can hit you with a defense that shakes you up, especially with us missing Josh Roselli, not having a true point guard with all that experience, you never know what type of defense will cause concern for us. Jeremy and Ben kind of take control of the situation and figure out where we need to get the ball."
JOHNSONBURG â€“ The Johnsonburg Ramettes were unable to recover from a key second quarter run as the Curwensville Lady Tide left town Tuesday night with a 60-47 victory.
