After trailing 16-15 at the end of the first quarter, South Salem played with a purpose on the road against South Eugene, outscoring the Axe 59-36 for the remainder of the game en route to a 74-52 statement victory. 

The Saxons punched the Axe in mouth to open up the second quarter and never looked back, dominating the glass and outworking the defending Southwest Conference champs on their way to a second straight win.

Considering both teams should be in solid contention for a league championship this season, the Saxons certainly came up with an early big win.
