By John Bernhardt

That was not the case in South Kortright yesterday when the first place Rams held on to salvage a 1-1 tie against Andes. SK had to breathe a sigh of relief when the final horn sounded after the second overtime period with the score still deadlocked at one. As the regular season winds down, the tie allows the Rams to maintain their one-game advantage over the surging Mountaineers.
