Ripon Christian got off to a quality start and it never let up, posting a one-sided 6-0 blowout on Turlock Christian Thursday in Southern League play.

Jon Vander Molen notched a pair of goals to lead the Knights, who also got goals from Dylan Van Vliet, Christian Manes, Scott Faure and Kendell Witt in the win.

Ripon Christian expanded on its 2-0 halftime lead, pouring in three goals over a 2-minute span, putting the contest out of reach 10 minutes into the second half. Vander Molen’s second goal was the final of the contest when he landed a shot in the back of the net from just over 25-yards out.

Goalie Jacob Meeuwse controlled the net for Ripon Christian, holding Turlock Christian scoreless while earning a pair of saves.

Ripon Christian (2-10 SL) will be back on the pitch Monday when they host Delhi High at 3:45 p.m.
