Outlaws football took a hard fall at Sweet Home

The Outlaws went from a big win last week against Harrisburg to a hard fall at Sweet Home this week, in a final score of 38-6 on Friday, March 19.

Sweet Home boasts a big offensive line, including Tanner Waldrop, who is 6'5" and 320 pounds. The Huskies offensive line were easily able to push the Outlaws defensive line around. Sweet Home senior quarterback Aiden Tyler is athletic and accurate on his throws, and senior running back Cade Gaskey (6'1" 215 pounds) is a big, powerful runner. Both these players were offensive weapons for the Huskies and played a big part in their win.

Sisters struggled throughout the game and made numerous mistakes, including committing five fumbles.

Both teams suffered penalties on both sides of the ball in the first quarter and the period ended with the score 0-0.

The Huskies put up 22 points in the second quarter to go up 22-0 at the half. Sisters’ fullback Hunter Spor sprained his ankle late in the quarter, which was a big loss for the Outlaws.

Sweet Home tacked on 11 points in the third to finish the quarter with a commanding 33-0 lead. Quarterback Griffin Gardner scored on fourth and goal from the two-yard line for Sisters’ lone goal of the contest.

On the bright side, Sisters’ Wyatt Maffey had a strong game on defense. Wyatt had eight tackles in the contest, five of them solo. He also tipped a pass, and had a fumble recovery. Gardner had a good night running the ball.

The Outlaws will play at Siuslaw on Friday, March 26.
