PRINEVILLE — Offense was hard to come by, but Crook County found enough for the game’s only touchdown in a 7-0 nonleague football win over Sisters on Friday night.
The win hiked the Cowboys’ record to 3-0 entering Class 4A Special District 2 play next week at home against The Dalles. The Outlaws, meanwhile, dropped to 0-3 in nonleague play and open their 4A SD3 schedule next week at home against Sweet Home.
Crook County recovered a Sisters fumble near midfield in the second quarter and put together the game’s only scoring march. Senior running back Clayton Berman capped the drive with a 4-yard touchdown run, and Elias Villagomez kicked the extra point for what proved to be the final score.
“Kind of ugly,” said Cowboys coach Ryan Cochran. “But we’d rather win ugly than lose pretty.”
Crook County had outscored its previous two opponents by a combined 88-15, including a 49-0 shutout win at Cottage Grove in their most recent game.
“We’re coming out of preseason 3-0, but it’s been a one-week-at-a-time thing for us,” said Cochran. “We’ve been working things out, trying to get a little rhythm going. Now we get focused on league.”
