SISTERS — Jake McAllister, the Sky-Em League’s reigning player of the year, scored three goals and posted two assists Tuesday as Sisters cruised past Crook County 7-0 in both teams’ boys soccer season opener.

The senior midfielder led the Outlaws (1-0) to a 3-0 halftime lead after recording an assist and a goal in the first half.

Junior forward Ethan Stengel gave Sisters its first lead of the game, scoring off an Evan Rickards’ deflection in the fourth minute to put the Outlaws ahead 1-0. Jadon Bachtold and McAllister added scores in the 25th and 35th minutes.

In the second half, McAllister scored twice while Justin Harrer and Trent Marks each added one goal.

“In the first half, we tried to do too much,” Sisters coach Rob Jensen said. “In the second half we made the simple 18-yard cross. We played balls through the middle.”

The Outlaws, who went 12-3 last season, outshot Crook County 35-5 and allowed just one shot on goal.

Sisters is off until Thursday, Sept. 14, when the Outlaws host Henley. The Cowboys are also off for the next eight days before entertaining Redmond’s Central Christian in Prineville.
