Ripon Christian ended Ripon’s nine-year run of bragging rights with Wednesday’s 1-1 tie at home.

It     marked the first time since 2004 that Ripon didn’t beat its neighboring rival, ending a 15-match win streak in the series. The nonleague rematch is set for April 24 at Ripon’s Stouffer Field.

“It’s a good result for us,” said Ripon Christian coach Kevin Tameling, who is missing several key players — including standout striker Teagan Manus — who are on the school’s basketball team.

“They controlled most of the possession, but our girls showed a lot of character in not giving up and working hard. They put themselves in the right positions throughout the game. We didn’t have too many (scoring) opportunities, but once we had one at the end we took advantage of it.”

Ripon Christian (1-0-1) knotted the score in the 63rd minute when Abby Buitrago was fouled to set up a direct kick. Courtney Bloemhof took the shot and had it deflected by the wall of Indians. Ripon Christian got the bounce it needed, as Cynthia Van Vliet was at the right spot at the right time to touch it in.

The Knights had a chance to steal the win in the 71st minute but had shot cleared away from sophomore defender Sarah Alves, who had the presence of mind to cover for Ripon’s out-of-position keeper.

“Late in the game they still had life,” Ripon assistant coach Bryce Perkins said. “(Alves) saved the game. Had she not stood in that spot it would have went in.”

The Indians drew first blood in the 25th minute when the all-sophomore tandem of Meghan Harlan and Hailey Monroe hooked up for the goal. Harlan dished it from the left wing and Monroe guided it in from the opposite post.

Ripon held a 15-2 advantage on shots at halftime and 30-4 overall.

“Nothing could seem to find the frame,” Perkins said. “It was just one of those odd games.”
