The Ripon Chiefs swept past the Galt Junior Warriors in DYSA NorCal football action played last Saturday at Stouffer Field.

For starters, the varsity squad (3-2) dominated on both sides of the ball in the 36-6 win.

Kory Wengel got things going with an interception return for a touchdown, sparking Ripon to an 8-0 lead.

The Chiefs came out in their hurry-up offense. They drove the ball by controlling the line, scoring on a Thomas Sidtikun run.

Galt answered back by successfully running the ball up the middle, scoring to make it a 14-8 game.

Alex Padilla returned the favor with a reverse that resulted into a 45-yard TD.

In the second half, the Chiefs’ defense took over by keeping the Warriors in check.

The offense kept it going with Matthew Dedonatis capping a long drive with a TD run.

Quarterback Logan Orlando then connected with Aaron Paschini, who made an over-the-shoulder grab on a fade route for another score.

Ripon will host the 4-1 Brentwood Patriots East this weekend.
