“A good win today against a team that defends well,” said Panther head coach Rommy Herrera.

“We knew coming into this game Ripon is a team that can make scoring difficult due to the way they defend with so many players. We knew the key was to move the ball and create space.

Once we scored they opened up trying to get the tie and we found more opportunities to score,” said Herrera.
