MINERAL RIDGE, Ohio (WYTV) – The Mineral Ridge Rams lost a heart-breaker in week two against Lisbon, and they refused to let it happen again Friday night winning an overtime thriller against Newton Falls.

Mineral Ridge matched that score with a touchdown of their own, but instead of kicking an extra point as well to force a second overtime in front of their home crowd, they successfully went for the win and completed a two point conversion.
