The Ladies made the journey to Leeds to face Republica Internationale with a patched up squad of just 11 players including Lizzie Weatherill, full of cold and Hayley Maxwell carrying an injury.
In a very scrappy first half Ripon created the only real opportunities to score but failed to convert them. It was a game where tempers had to be controlled with lots of complaining from the opposition about some strong, but fair tackles from the Ripon midfielders.
After a scrappy half the ladies started the second half better, passing and moving well. More chances cane and eventually the deadlock was broken by Louise Wilson.
From then on Ripon never looked troubled and another couple of goals wouldn't have flattered the visitors performance.
