WOOD-RIDGE, NJ - After two dominating wins against Group 1 schools, Wood-Ridge took a step in class on Monday morning, facing Paramus, a Group 3 school, in an independent game.  When they fell behind 9-1 through the first quarter, skeptics thought for sure that their fast start was a case of beating up on two very weak schools.

By halftime, the skeptics had been proven wrong, as Wood-Ridge outscored Paramus 15-5, taking a 16-14 lead into the half, en route to a 38-31 win over the Group 3 school. 

After a 10-10 third quarter left the game tied at 26-24 going into the fourth, the Lady Blue Devils pulled away, outscoring 12-7 down the stretch to pull away.
