The DeJong sisters helped get Ripon Christian’s girls soccer team untracked Friday in a 4-1 Southern Athletic League road win over Delhi.
Trailing 1-0, the Knights evened the score in the 15th minute when Addison DeJong chipped a shot over the Hawks goalkeeper. Older sister Maya pushed Ripon Christian (4-0-1 SAL, 11-4-2 overall) ahead with a goal of her own in the 57th minute.
The DeJongs each scored one more to put it away. The win sets up a big week ahead, as the Knights face their three chief league rivals starting with Orestimba at home Monday.

Audie Garza scored in the fifth minute and later assisted Jorge Reyes’ goal at Daniel Teicheira Memorial Stadium.
Adrian Ramirez and Emmanuel Ruiz contributed one goal apiece for Sierra (6-1 Valley Oak League, 12-2-1 overall), and Amun Singh had an assist.
The Timberwolves face rival East Union at River Islands Sports Complex today at noon.

Sophomore Ociel Mora registered a hat trick, highlighting his big night with the equalizing bicycle kick in the first half.
He secured the go-ahead off a cross from Hector Hernandez. Jeorge Garcia and Reyli Villalpando assisted the other goals. Estevan Guzman collected nine saves.
The win helps keep Lathrop (4-5-1, 6-10-4 overall) in the hunt for a playoff berth out of the Western Athletic Conference.
