  • Ripley High School Boys Soccer team, and the hosts handed the visitors a 4-0 defeat.
    Ripley got on the board first with 27:31 remaining in the first half as Senior Ryan Faber took a crossing pass from Junior Brian Casto and headed it into the Tigers goal to give Ripley a 1-0 lead at the half.
    In the second half the Vikings came out and scored a quick goal with just six minutes into the 40 minute half, with Jo Jo Greeley-Fay scoring the first of his two goals on a laser shot from about 30 yards out. 
    The shot was fired so hard and fast that the Tiger Keeper did not have time to react and make a play on the ball.  
    The Vikings were not finished scoring yet, as Casto again found an open Ripley Viking on a cross pass to Freshman Remy Boyce.  Boyce nailed the shot and took the score to 3-0. 
    Then with just 46 seconds remaining in the game, Greeley-Fay finished the scoring by maneuvering through and around the Princeton players to nail his second goal of the game and provide the final score of 4-0.
    Ripley shot 15 times on the Tigers goal and Viking Keeper Caleb Jennings recorded 15 saves to preserve the Viking shut out.
    After the game, Assistant Coach Victor Boyce stated the team still appears to be struggling in the 1st half and needs to continue to work on playing both halves of the game with the same intensity that they have played in the second half of their last two games. 
    In JV action, the hosts handed the visiting Tigers a 4-1 loss, led by Jacob McKown’s two goals while Trenton Johnson and Jacob Fields scored one each.  Brandon Well and Elijah Randolph each were credited with an assist and Keepers Ryan Neil and Garrett Boggess helped lead the reserves to victory.
    Ripley hosted George Washington at Memorial Stadium on Tuesday night and travel to Capital tonight to take on the Cougars.
