The Ripon High School boys’ soccer team had its fair share of scoring opportunities Tuesday evening against visiting Waupun.
But it couldn’t take advantage of them as it lost to the Warriors 1-0.
The match marks the second time the Tigers have fallen by that score to Waupun this season as they also were beaten 1-0 Sept. 15.
“Kind of a mirror image of that first game,” Ripon head coach Kyle Sackett said. “We definitely had more opportunities; better scoring opportunities ... [It was] just [a] frustrating game from a coach’s standpoint that we weren’t able to capitalize and find the back of the net on at least one of them.”
Among the chances Sackett cited were numerous fast breaks by Noah Rindo, a few breakaways on the wings by Nick Brueggemann and Wilson Agamaite, a loose ball right in front of the net that two Tigers missed and Agamaite putting a shot just wide of the post with around five minutes remaining.
Ripon also was whistled for three offside calls in the first half, negating possible scoring plays.
While the Tigers couldn’t cash in on their opportunities, the same cannot be said about the Warriors.
