Savannah Skamra got her second hat trick in two games on Tuesday as the Tigers beat Oshkosh Valley Christian in a non-conference game.
Ripon opened the game with their best possession play of the young season, but they couldn’t figure out how to penetrate the Warrior defense.

Seven minutes later Skamra controlled the ball near midfield and outran the defenders for a second breakaway goal.
