Talk about going out on top.

Talk about going out on top.

  Ripley’s girls soccer program did just that on Saturday in Hurricane.

  The Lady Vikings edged GW, 2-1, in dramatic fashion to win the Mountain State Athletic Conference championship game.

  Ripley’s claiming of the title comes in the school’s last fall of existence as an MSAC member.

  Ripley gained the advantage in the contest with a first half penalty kick goal by Olivia Gandee.

GW evened things in the second half when Kalissa Lacy punched it into the net.

The game-winner came on Presley Fisher’s header. The winning and championship goal came with under four minutes remaining.

The championship win improved Steve Gandee’s first Lady Viking squad to 17-1 on the year. It was Ripley’s 11th straight win.

The Lady Vikings have only given up seven goals this season. GW’s lone goal brought to an end a shutout streak of ten games for the Lady Vikings. The Lady Vikings have kept 14 teams off the scoreboard in 18 games this season.

Ripley is slated to meet Ravenswood tonight (Tuesday).
