Girls' soccer team ends season with loss to Winneconne

The Ripon High School girls’ soccer team’s season ended with a whimper as it lost 13-0 in a first-round regional game against host Winneconne last week Thursday.

As the No. 15 seed and without two starting defenders and their starting center mid-fielder, the Tigers faced long odds against the No. 2 seeded Wolves. But head coach Dana Scott was looking for a better showing from her team.

“We had no energy … it looked like we were running in sand,” she said.

Ripon knew Winneconne had superior technique and more experience, but its desire to get as far as it can in the tournament and its belief in itself also was clear from the opening whistle.

The Tigers found themselves on the defensive from the start as the Wolves fired from distance at every opportunity to take advantage of a midfield slow to apply pressure.

They were unable to maintain any possession and created no chances on goal.
