The Lady Outlaws played through intermittent rain and high winds on Saturday, and snowy windy conditions on Sunday, to make it to the championship game of Sisters Annual Lacrosse Invitational (SALI). They defeated West Linn in a final score of 7-5 to win it all.

On Saturday, Sisters played three games and walked away with a 6-3 win over Sunset, a 10-4 win against Summit, and then tied with West Linn 5-5.

Sunday the Outlaws started with an 11-5 win over Bend, which put them in the championship game.

Sisters faced West Linn in the championship game, and quickly took the lead. The Outlaws scored four goals within the first few minutes of the contest. Coach Julia Boris told The Nugget that Sisters really brought the intensity that was needed to take control of the game.

In the second half, West Linn came out strong and met Sisters on their level. The Outlaws were definitely intimidated but continued to play their game, held their own, and secured the victory.
