The Lady Outlaws posted a 12-5 win over Grant High School in a non-league game at home on Saturday, April 6 — despite having no substitutes to give players a breather. Sisters’ 10 players were on the field the entire contest, and played with heart, confidence, and determination to earn the win.

Sisters took the lead and never trailed during the game. At the half, the Outlaws were on top 7-2; they kept the scoring going in the second half and won by seven.

Sydney Head and Mary Root each scored a hat trick to lead the Outlaws to victory.

Of Root’s three goals, the most memorable came in the second half, and started with a dropped ball by Grant. Josie Aylor came from the defensive end into the midfield to pick up the beautiful ground ball, and fed a leading pass across the field into the attack area to Pearl Gregg. Pearl immediately fed it to Mary, who was alone in the eight-meter and sent the ball in for the score.

One of Head’s three goals came off a new play the team had been practicing called Toast and Jam. The play incorporates every girl on the attack side of the field in order to allow the girl with the ball to have an open lane to the goal. The Lady Outlaws worked the play to perfection and moved all the defenders out of the eight, which allowed Head to run to the goal and score.

Several other Outlaws contributed in the scoring effort. Ellie Cook and Kaylee Huber scored two goals each, and Skylar Wilkins and Pearl Gregg each had two. Gregg also had three assists in the contest, and Root led the team with six groundballs.

“I couldn’t be more proud of these girls,” said Coach Shelby Wilcox. “Although it wasn’t a league game, I’m happy to be 3-0! This is such a coachable group of girls!”

The Outlaws will play on the road against Redmond United on Thursday, April 11, and then host Wilson on Saturday.
