Outlaws lacrosse posts first win

The Outlaws defeated Sprague 8-5 at home on Friday, April 30, and recorded their first win of the season.

Teams played fairly even at the start of the contest and at the close of the first quarter it was tied up 1-1. Sisters poured it on and scored four goals in the second quarter to take a 5-2 lead as teams headed into the half.

Connor Martin scored his third goal in the fourth quarter to get a hat trick for the game and extended the Outlaw’s lead to 7-4.

Coach Paul Patton said, “Sprague was mounting a bit of a comeback so the goal was a key moment for us.”

Sisters scored one additional goal in the quarter and secured the win.

Martin had a great overall game with three goals, one assist, and six ground balls. Gaven Henry also played well and finished with two goals, and one assist. Adam Maddox-Castle had one goal and an assist. Ricky Huffman and Kyle Pilarski scored one goal each, and Gus Patton tallied an assist.

The Outlaws outshot Sprague 52-18, which attests to their ability to keep control of the ball. They also won the ground ball battle 49-21. Mason Sellers had seven ground balls, Nathaniel Alvarez five, and Riley Sellers had four.

Clayton Craig did a stellar job in the goal with seven saved shots in three quarters of play.

“This was our first win of the season after a couple close losses and it felt really good for the boys to get a positive outcome after all the hard work they’ve been putting in. We were happy to be able to play the game after a COVID scare that closed the school on Thursday.”

Sisters was scheduled to play at Summit on Tuesday, May 4. They will host Burns on Saturday, May 8.
