The De Pere boys soccer team had to wait all week to get in their first match, not playing until Saturday this past week. The Redbirds traveled to Portage to square off with Stevens Point and Eau Claire Memorial in a quad. Ramirez was all over the field in the two matches, scoring a hat trick in the 4-2 win over Stevens Point. He followed that up with another two goals, the only two of the game, in a 2-0 shutout of Eau Claire Memorial.
This week in a 3-3 tie with Green Bay Preble, Ramirez scored and assisted on a goal.
