The Outlaws took their second loss in league on Friday, September 29, when the Sutherlin Bulldogs shut them out 14-0.

Sutherlin scored their first touchdown of the contest midway through the first quarter on a 25-yard pass. The Outlaws prevented a two-point conversion attempt, but the Bulldogs went up 6-0. Sutherlin scored again on a three-yard run with just over five minutes left on the clock, and completed a pass for a two-point conversion. They held on to their 14-0 advantage until time ran out.

Sisters suffered a few penalties, and some came at crucial moments in the game. One of those moments came with nine minutes left on the clock. The Outlaws had moved the ball down to the 25-yard line, but then a penalty bumped them back to the 40-yard line, and they were unable to score. That type of situation was the story of the night.

"Everyone was frustrated with the final result," said Coach Neil Fendall. "The frustration comes from past success, but every year is different. The kids and coaches are working hard. Mistakes that we are making are costing us games, but it's not for lack of trying."

Fendall noted some players who made contributions in the game.

"Ethan Morgan ran the ball with tremendous toughness tonight," said Fendall. "Our center was out, and Jaden Condel moved to center and played great. Ethan Martin and Sam Mitchell stepped in at offensive tackle and did a good job, and Brady Wessel and Joel Miller played every down on both the offensive and defensive line."

The Outlaws defense played well enough to win, but the offense just couldn't find a way to score points.

Sisters is currently 0-2 in league and 2-3 overall. The Outlaws will host No. 2-ranked Cottage Grove on Friday, October 6. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
