The Lady Outlaws soccer squad remains undefeated, as they beat Elmira on the road 6-1 on Tuesday, September 19, and shut out La Pine 8-0 at home two days later.
In Tuesday’s contest at Elmira, the Outlaws started out a bit disorganized, and the Falcons did a good job of pressuring them early.
Sisters only managed to score once in the first half, with a goal from Juhree Kizziar. At the 38-minute mark Ella Davis collected the ball in the middle and fed it through the Falcons’ defense to Kizziar, who ran onto the ball and finished in the left corner of the net.
Coach Brian Holden said, “The girls were a little slow in their passing game and came out slow. They needed to just settle down and play their game.”
The Outlaws did settle in, and five minutes into the second half Shae Wyland scored a beautiful left on a free kick to put the Outlaws up 2-0.
At that point the goals started to trickle in. Katie Ryan scored a goal, followed by Kizziar with an assist from Shae Wyland. Ella Davis put another one in off a Marley Holden assist, and then Lilly Sundstrom wrapped up the scoring spree when she was fed out wide, cut to the middle, and finished with a one-touch to the upper left.
The Outlaws gave up their first goal of the season in the final minute off a penalty kick.
Time expired and the Outlaws recorded their sixth straight win.
Holden said, “We are working on not creating opportunities for other teams. We’re striving not to foul and give them scoring opportunities. I feel like we have one of the better defenses in the state and very few have goal-scoring opportunities against us.”
Two days later the Lady Outlaws crushed the La Pine Hawks 8-0.
Sisters will play at home against Creswell on Thursday, September 28.
