Lady Outlaws bit by the Bulldogs

The Lady Outlaws were defeated 56-33 at Woodburn on Tuesday, June 1. Their game at Stayton against the Eagles was cancelled as the Outlaws did not have enough players to make the trip.

It was a tough first half for the Outlaws on Tuesday as they were outscored 31-16 in the first half. They did a much better job in the second half but the first-half deficit was too much to overcome. The Bulldogs were a much more experienced team and they shot the ball very well from behind the arc. The Outlaws did get good looks from the outside but were only able to capitalize on three of their attempts.

There were some highlights. Sophomore Haleigh Froelich had her best game to date. She played strong on defense and rebounding the ball, and according to Coach Carl Click, scored from all over the court.

“Haleigh got open under the basket and behind Woodburn’s trapping zone,” said Click. “When our outside kids survived the pressure, they did a good job delivering the ball to Haleigh where she could score. She also scored a few put-backs, and even buried a three-point shot.”

Froelich shared her thoughts with The Nugget.

“I feel that our team pushed and kept their heads up to the end,” said Froelich. “I’m very proud of how everyone played and I can’t wait for the rest of the season.”

“I was happy with the way our kids competed against a better team,” Click said. “They listened to instructions and made adjustments on the fly. At one point they went on a streak of solid defense and productive offense in the third quarter to cut the deficit to 12. That’s as close as we got after a slow start.”

Sisters was to play at Sweet Home on Tuesday, June 8. They will host Newport on Wednesday and finish their week with a game at Philomath on Friday.
