Cowboys play Sisters to a tie
The Crook County High School boys soccer team opened OSAA season 1 on the road Wednesday, tying the Sisters Outlaws 3-3.
The Cowboys took the lead early on a Kevin Arroyo goal. Sisters tied the game midway through the first half as the game remained close throughout.
After Sisters went ahead 2-1, Crook County rallied to tie the game at 2-2 late in the half on a Kevin Sanchez goal.
Both teams scored once in the second half, with Arroyo scoring his second goal of the game.
"It was great for the kids to get to play soccer," head coach Jonny Oelkers said.
The two teams were also scheduled to play JV contests. However, a couple of temporarily ineligible players, plus injuries, left Crook County with too few players to play both games.
Still, Oelkers is pleased with both the turnout and the attitude on this year's team.
"There is a major difference in positivity and teamwork this year," he said. "I'm proud of how far they've come since last year."
The Cowboys are back in action today when they host the Redmond Panthers in a 3 p.m. contest.
