Boys hoops tally third straight win
By rongi Yost
The Outlaws recorded two
league wins this past week
to push their record to 3-0.
Sisters defeated the Sweet
Home Huskies 46-42 at home
on Tuesday, January 20, and
three days later defeated
Junction City (JC) at home
Sisters earned the win on
Tuesday against Sweet Home,
but it was definitely not the
prettiest game.
The Outlaws took an early
lead in the first with the aid of
an excellent defensive effort.
From there, Sisters offense
slowed down, but at the half
they still held a slim 21-20
advantage. Sisters played a
good third quarter and out-
scored the Huskies by four,
which gave them a five-point
lead heading into the final
In the final quarter, the
Outlaws defense lagged on
transition, Sweet Home senior
Hunter Jutte took advantage,
hit three deep shots from
behind the arc, and made it a
very close game.
Connor Schaab and Justin
Harrer hit their shots down
the stretch, which gave the
Outlaws a narrow margin of
Coach Rand Runco stated,
“It was a good effort, but not
our best performance.”
Schaab led the Outlaws
in scoring with 12 points,
and Harrer followed with 11.
Steen Johnson recorded eight
points and Ben Larson added
six. Sweet Home’s Jutte led
all scoring with 22 points.
At home three days later,
Sisters recorded their third-
straight league win with a

The Outlaws were down
three players due to illness
and injuries, but stayed tough
defensively and gained con-
trol of the game after a slow
start. Sisters took the lead in
the second quarter and led by
two, 17-15, as they headed
into the half.
Sisters held a two-point
lead at the close of the third
quarter and then stretched it
out in the fourth.
JC used two zones and
man-to-man, and then went
into a half-court trap which
gave the Outlaws trouble
for several possessions. The
Outlaws made a few position
shifts and re-gained the lead.
The Outlaws had an
11-point lead at one time,
which was cut to four due to
turn-overs. Sisters managed
to break through, and fight
back for an 11-point victory.
Sisters again had balanced
scoring, with the starters all
scoring between six and 12
points in the game. Schaab
finished with 12 points,
Harrer recorded 11, Johnson
tallied eight, and Larson
added six.
Runco said, “Logan
Schutte and Isaac Mackenzie
did a great job off the bench,
and played good defense
and rebounded well. Steen
(Johnson), Ben (Larson), and
Keegan (Greaney) did a great
job running the offense and
knocking down big perimeter
The Outlaws are currently
3-0 in league and 10-5 over-
all. Sisters was to play at
Elmira on Tuesday, January
27. The Outlaws will play at
home against Sutherlin on
Friday, January 30.
