Tiger girls' soccer team ends the regular season with a pair of losses

The Ripon Tiger girls’ soccer team finished the regular season with two disappointing games as it lost to Little Chute 4-2 last week Wednesday and 4-0 to North Fond du Lac

last week Thursday.

The game against North Fond du Lac was the more disappointing of the two as the Tigers were unable to generate any shots on goal.

The score, however, was only 1-0 at halftime, with the goal coming on a shot that came straight out of the sun from the goalkeeper’s view.

Otherwise, though the Orioles dominated possession, no great chances were created.

In the second half, North Fond du Lac kept the pressure on and scored on two deflections and a penalty.

The Tigers (0-6-2 conference, 2-11-4 overall) struggled mostly in maintaining possession of the ball with both Esther and Sarah Rodman forced to miss the game.

“Esther provides composure in the midfield and makes some good outlet passes, and we rely on Sarah to hold the ball up while others get forward into the attack,” Ripon head coach Dana Scott. “Without them we were playing some people in new positions and just couldn’t get any good attacks started.”
