Friday Night Fights: South Salem vs South Medford
South Salem’s varsity football team traveled to South Medford on Friday night only to face a disappointing loss, with a final score of 10-52. South’s defense experienced a breakdown in fundamentals on the field, allowing Medford’s offense to score some easy touchdowns. Their offense was extremely productive, especially considering South’s defensive struggles. Then, their situation became more difficult when two of the leading defensive players,
Collin Vogt ‘18 and Tyler Coates ‘17 experienced injuries that put them out of the game.
