The boys lacrosse squad has been plagued with sickness and injury, which took a toll on the Outlaws this past week. Sisters lost 10-6 on the road at Ridgeview on Tuesday, and two days later were clobbered 21-3 at home against Bend.

Sisters was down eight players due to sickness and a variety of other reasons in Tuesday's game against Ridgeview, and several players had just returned to the squad after being out due to illness and injury.

Despite the low numbers, the Outlaws started off well and were ahead 4-2 at the half, but things changed quickly in the second half of the game. Ridgeview got a couple of quick goals and seized the momentum. Sisters' players became fatigued, and the shift in momentum rattled them.

Sisters regained composure and battled hard to the very end, but it just wasn't enough to get the win.

Trey Stadeli and Noah Keeton each scored two goals, and Ethan Morgan and Gator Haken added one goal. Jake Stevens, Kinnon Rutherford, Stadeli, and Morgan contributed one assist each. Goalie Casey Warburton had 13 saves on 35 shots.

Haken dislocated his shoulder during the contest, and will not be able to play the remainder of the season.

"The boys took the loss pretty hard, because we knew we had a chance for a big win, and we let it slip away," said Coach Paul Patton. "But I'm proud of the boys for the way they competed hard, despite the adversity the team was dealing


At home, two days later in a pre-game ceremony, the Outlaws honored their 11 senior players: Jaden Condel, Tyler Friend, Noah Keeton, Ethan Morgan, Jared Richerson, Jake Stevens, Cole Pade, Ethan Kennedy, Sam Mitchell, Casey Warburton, and Damien Wells.

Coach Paul Patton said, "Most of these boys have been the core of the team for the last three years and will be hard to replace."

The contest against Bend was extremely difficult. The Outlaws were still dealing with a wave of illness, and just weren't able to put their best foot forward. But, despite their depleted numbers and weakened condition they played hard.

Patton noted that Warburton was particularly impressive with his effort in the goal, and made a bunch of tough saves under a steady stream of shots from Bend's high-powered offense.

Casey had 18 saves and Anthony Randolf had three saves in relief, on 58 shots total between the two goalies.

Morgan, Richerson, and Stadeli each scored one goal in the contest.

The Outlaws were to wrap up their season with a game at La Salle Prep in Milwaukie on Tuesday, May 15.
