El Dorado then scored to trim River City’s lead to one point.
The game would end up being tied again 32-32 at one point in the fourth quarter, but River City began to put on some pressure defense, and held El Dorado to 32 while its offense kept chipping away.
River City would go on to win the game 41-32.
River City now improves to 19-1 overall, 5-0 in league play.
