Vanessa Vallo netted a pair of goals for RC and Adri Van Groningen scored the other in the win.

“The first half was a see-saw battle,” Ripon Christian head coach Kevin Tameling said. “We were able to capitalize on our opportunities in the second half.

“Kaylie Colyn controlled the center of the field the entre match, continually putting pressure on Turlock Christian’s defense.”

Vallo netted both her goals in the first 10 minutes of the second half, scoring on assists from Kaylie Colyn and Kamryn Bylsma.
