Prior to the game, seniors Jaden Condel, Brodie Enstrom, Tyler Friend, Spencer Kemp, Pherry Luz, Jett Mingus, Sam Mitchell, Ethan Morgan, Zach Morgan, Austin Morss, Jared Richerson, Andre Roberts, Chayce Sproat, Jacob Stevens, Turner Stutzman, Casey Warburton and Brady Wessel were honored.
Coach Neil Fendall said, "Our seniors make up a huge part of our team in sheer numbers. As head coach, they're my first senior class, so they're very special to me. They were sophomores when I joined the program. Brady (Wessel) has played varsity all four years, Jaden (Condel) has played varsity for three years, and they are the mainstays in our program. All the other seniors have two years experience on varsity."
Sisters got its first touchdown four minutes into the first quarter when Tyler Friend scored on a 55-yard run. The extra point was blocked, but the Outlaws took a 6-0 lead. Korbin Sharp ran 58 yards for a TD with five minutes left in the period. Sharp also ran for the two-point conversion to extend the lead to 14-0.
Korbin scored again on a 12-yard run with 1:44 left in the second quarter. His brother, Hayden, kicked the PAT and Sisters went up 21-0 as teams entered the half.
In the second half, Sharp scored on a four-yard run for his third TD of the night; Hayden's kick was good, and the Outlaws tacked on seven more points.
Elmira scored on a three-yard run in the fourth, and their extra point was good, which turned out to be the final score in the Outlaws win.
Sisters' offensive line once again had a strong performance and played a lot of snaps. Coach Fendall noted Wessel in particular.
"Brady only came off the field for one play the entire night, and that included special teams," said Fendall. "He's our warrior-scholar (4.0 student). He's so tough!"
Fendall also noted Tyler Friend and Korbin Sharp.
"Tyler played a whale of a game for us," said Fendall. "He played receiver, quarterback, had a 55-yard TD run, and had an interception on defense. It was probably his best game as an Outlaw on senior night.
"Korbin is just so steady and so coachable. With all the injuries we've had, we've leaned on him more and more, and he really responded."
Sisters will play their final league game at Junction City on Friday, October 20, and a win will put them in the playoffs.
