The Huskies tied Newport 2-2 at home on Sept. 15.

Allison Wickline scored the first goal three minutes into the game. Newport followed up two minutes later, and the two teams were tied 1-1 at halftime.

Wickline scored again 13 minutes into the second half, and the Cubs scored three minutes later.

Neither team could score another goal.

The Huskies had eight shots.

Sisters 7, Sweet Home 1

The Huskies lost 7-1 at Sisters. They trailed 4-0 at halftime.

Cora McKee scored 23 minutes into the second half, but the Outlaws added three more goals to seal the win.

Keeper Hailey Nicholson collected eight saves in the game.

“We need to move,” Coach Ramiro Santana said of his team. “They’re starting to get too comfortable with the players in the back.”

Some of the Huskies are relying on team leaders to take care of the ball, he said. This week he plans to adjust the lineup and move players around.

“I don’t think we have played at all at the level we should be,” Santana said. “There’s not an easy team (in the league). We need to start playing like it.

“We have moments.”

An example, he said, was when McKee scored against Sisters, taking the ball, dribbling and controlling it and moving it up the field smoothly.

“It was a beautiful thing,” Santana said. “We started to get shots after that.”

Santana said he had a few players who were sick last week, and that had an impact too.

The Huskies were scheduled to host Sutherlin on Tuesday travel to Sisters on Thursday and Elmira on Tuesday, Sept. 29.
