Having already lost to Arlington Seguin in District 15-4A play, Mansfield Summit guard Corinthian Ramsey knew how important Friday’s matchup with Mansfield Lake Ridge would be.

After falling behind by as much as 10 points, Ramsey hit two key 3-pointers to send the game into overtime as Summit completed a 58-55 come-from-behind victory over Lake Ridge.

The win pulls Summit (11-7, 2-1) even with Lake Ridge for third place in the district race.

“It was real big considering how we lost to Seguin,” Ramsey said. “We have a lot of faith in our team. We’ve beaten some big 5A schools, too, and we just stayed focused to get it done.”

Ramsey, who led all scorers with 20 points, had a layup and made two free throws with 30 seconds left in overtime to seal it for Summit.

The junior also hit the big 3-pointers when his team needed it most.

Down 51-46, the Ramsey worked left off transition and hit his second 3-pointer of the fourth quarter to pull Summit within two.

Summit’s defense held Lake Ridge (13-4, 2-1) to just a free throw in the final 5:13 and Terrance Hubby completed a three-point play to ultimately tie things up.
