The Outlaws fell 30-44 to Cottage Grove at home on Tuesday, December 17.

The Outlaws started off cold, didn’t have good opportunities to score, and when an opportunity was there they couldn’t score. They were held to just two points for the first six minutes of the game, but in the last two minutes were able to cut the lead in half and close out the quarter 6-12.

Sisters did a much better job in the second period. Weber hit a three-ball, and a driving lay-up to narrow the Lions lead to 11-16. In the last 2.5 minutes, Nicklous and Linn made lay-ins and School and Linn both went two-for-two on their free throw attempts to give the Outlaws a 19-16 lead to close out the first half.

It was a brutal second half for the Outlaws. They went cold and were unable to get a basket to fall the entire third quarter. Their first score came in the fourth with 2:39 left in the game. Sisters lost the contest by 14.

Weber scored 10 points, five of them in the fourth quarter. Nicklous recorded eight points and Petterson and Linn added four points each.
