Axe hold off Wolverines

EUGENE, OR - South Eugene held off Willamette 50-48 in a boys Midwestern Hybrid League game on Tuesday night.

Brandon Thompson and Sean O'Neil each scored 13 points for the Axemen who improved to 13-5 overall. Mason Green-Richards added nine.

South trailed by one at the half, but the Axe came out and scored the first two baskets in the third quarter and never trailed again. Thompson had a steal and dunk to give South Eugene a 28-25 lead.

With under a minute to go in the game, Scott Kuvaas buried a three-pointer to pull the Wolverines to within one at 49-48. Thompson then made one of two free throws for the Axemen.

After advancing the ball to mid-court, Wil-Hi took a time out with 11.6 seconds left. The Wolverines worked the ball around, but a three-point shot by Cam Ferguson at the buzzer did not go in.

South will be at home on Friday hosting Lincoln while Willamette will host Sheldon on Friday.

Elsewhere in the Midwestern League, five Lancers scored in double figures as Churchill defeated Marshfield 81-40. Below are more scores from the Associated Press.
