JV football improved to 6-0 last night with a convincing win over the South Salem Saxons. Anthony Nunn ran wild with 4 first half touchdowns capped off by a touchdown strike from Austin Brown to Gerod Martin to give the Olys a convincing 34-0 halftime lead. Thomas Burdick and Ryan Ruiz would add scores in the 2nd half to give the Olys the 47-6 victory. The defense was outstanding holding the Saxons scoreless. Other then a botched punt attempt that gave south their only points the Olys played outstanding in all phases of the game. Next week JV travels to McNary to take on the 5-1 Celtics .
