The Outlaws opened their pre-league season with an 8-1 loss to Madras on Tuesday, September 3.

The White Buffaloes are a highly skilled team with depth, skill, and speed, and the young Outlaw squad had a rough time keeping up. Sisters scored their lone goal midway through the second half when Aidan Eckert won the ball in the midfield and had a great through-ball to a speedy Ricky Huffman, who’s shot rang true.

Coach Jeff Husmann noted that although Sisters suffered the loss there were many positives for the young Outlaws.

“Commendable performances include Connor Martin and Nathaniel Alvarez splitting the goal-keeping duties,” said Husmann. Ethan Eckert had a very solid game as the holding midfielder, and Nate Pittman played a solid game and is gaining more confidence in his defending duties. Simon Rhett had an excellent performance as central defender.”

The Outlaws are a young team, with only one senior, and Coach Husmann has been impressed with the work ethic and positive outlook the team brings.

Two days later Sisters was scheduled to play Marist but the contest was canceled due to weather, and has not been rescheduled.

Sisters was to play Newport at home on Tuesday, September 10. They will travel to Cascade on Thursday.
