In its final two games on the island, Grosse Ile certainly gave the home fans plenty to cheer about last week.

In the second quarter, the Rams were able to mount a comeback attempt and pulled to within three, thanks to 3-pointers from Parker Neal and TeDarius Laidler and a pair of Kevin Fritz free throws.

Fritz, who finished with a team-high 10 points, also converted a three-point play late in the quarter after being fouled and made it a 29-24 game at the break.
