UPPER SANDUSKY, OH - The Upper Sandusky Rams raced out to an early lead and never gave it up defeating the Willard Flashes 60-49 at home on opening night.

The Rams (1-0) forced five early Willard turnovers turning into a 12-0 Rams run. That lead extended to 19-6 after one quarter and 32-18 at the half.

The Flashes (0-1) didn't go away quietly, however, making a run late in the fourth quarter to cut the Rams lead to 7, but an inability to hit free throws throughout and the Rams ability to make its free throws down the stretch was the deciding factor.
