The Outlaws have been hammering their opponents on the hardwood, and this past week started out no different. Sisters defeated the Falcons 60-41 at Elmira on Tuesday, January 23. Three days later, though, the Outlaws fell hard in a 51-25 loss to the Bulldogs at Sutherlin.

In Tuesday's action, the Outlaws started a bit slow, and the Falcons came out strong and took a 2-8 lead early in the first quarter. After a quick timeout, Sisters regrouped, picked up the pace, and closed out the period on top 12-8.

The Outlaws continued to maintain control of the game, outscored the Falcons 22-12 in the second period, and at the break held a 34-20 advantage.

Sisters shared the ball, worked together on defense, kept the momentum, and beat the Falcons by 19.

"It was a good team effort," said Coach David Godfrey. "It was a good win on the road, and a tough thing to do in our league."

Jack Berg led all scorers with 19 points. Berg shot the ball well and was big on the boards for the Outlaws. Zach Anderson finished well around the basket, and recorded 13 points. Noah Richards contributed nine points, had some good assists, and drove well to the hoop.

Austin Lake put nine points up on the scoreboard, and James Ceciliani and Ryan Waddell added four points each. Brad Eagan played a solid floor game, and had two points in the game.

Godfrey noted that both Waddell and Ceciliani came off the bench and gave the Outlaws a spark, played hard, and scored in the paint.

On Friday, Sisters shot poorly and committed numerous turnovers. Early in the contest, they missed some shots that they normally make, and fell behind. At the end of the first period Sisters trailed the Bulldogs 11-6.

Sutherlin doubled up on the Outlaws in the second quarter, 15-7, and at the half the Outlaws trailed 26-13. The second half was just as tough, and Sutherlin posted the win.

"Sutherlin's a good team, and they hit their shots," said Godfrey. "We didn't shoot well, and it was hard to catch up. We got good shots for the most part, but they just didn't fall."

Sisters committed 18 turnovers, which caused them to miss several scoring opportunities. On the positive side, the Outlaws did play solid defense.

Berg led the squad with nine points, and Richards followed with six. Anderson contributed five, and Eagan added three.

Sisters will head into the second half of league play with a home contest against Cottage Grove on Friday, February 2. The Outlaws wrapped up the first half of league play with a 4-1 record.
