Tiger football team moves one step closer to playoffs:

With the exception of a 75-yard touchdown run by Cade Jahns on the second play from scrimmage, the first half left a lot to be desired for Ronell Hubanks last week Friday.

“We had a very undisciplined first half,” the Ripon High School head football coach said. “I think we probably had 10, 11 penalties for over 100 yards in the first half.”

After having a conversation at halftime, the Tigers played much better in the second half as they defeated Kettle Moraine Lutheran (KML) Chargers 32-0 on the road.

With the win, they are just one victory away from qualifying for just their second postseason in the last eight years. Their other playoff appearance came in 2016.

Much like the first half, Jahns got the scoring started for Ripon (3-2 conference, 4-3 overall) in the second with a two-yard touchdown run. The senior finished with 123 yards rushing on 14 carries.

From there, Max Huseboe and the passing game took over as the junior quarterback threw three touchdown passes.
