Sisters High School Outlaws played their home opener against the Madras White Buffalos Friday night. On the opening kickoff the Sisters' field goal kicker was injured making a tackle. His mother came out of the stands to comfort him. That's the way it goes at a small town high school. Cory McCaffrey (shown talking to the quarterback Jarred Hasskamp) scored 4 times in the first half and the Outlaws were ahead 42-0 at halftime. The final score was 60-20. The social scene in the stands among the students was really laid back and the cheerleaders were having a hard time finding fans to volunteer to try to kick a ball through the goal posts during intermission. This was the first high school game I've attended in many years when I wasn't working. It was pleasant to wander around photographing another element of my new life in Oregon.
