  • Salisbury helps South slip by Pels

  • KLAMATH FALLS — The injury bug found its way onto the already flu-ridden South Medford girls soccer team on Tuesday.
    "I like to use the old Oakland Raiders football team to compare to us," said South Medford coach Buzz Thielemann, who had to sit star forward Erin Reno after the first 15 minutes due to illness. "The Raiders seemed like they could find a way to win no matter what or how they were playing.
    "That's kind of how we did it today."
    Salisbury, the only returning all-Southern Oregon Conference first-team selection from last year, got the Panthers off to a fast start.
    The left-footed Salisbury found the upper corner of the net from 30 yards out just three minutes in.
    To prove she wasn't a one-trick pony, Salisbury duplicated the feat - this time right-footed - five minutes later to boost the South lead to 2-0.
    But Salisbury watched her game come to an end after banging knees with a Klamath player right before the half.
    "She just banged knees with somebody," said Thielemann. "We just didn't want to take any chances.
    "We substituted Kelsey Jones and Vanessa Lloyd in her spot and they did a very admirable job."
    Heather Frigaard added the other two goals for South to seal the win.
    The Panthers (4-0-1) outshot the Pelicans 28-9.
    NORTH MEDFORD 4, CHURCHILL 2- Sophomore forward Nicole Vilarino scored two goals to help North Medford to a win at Hoffbuhr Field.
    Vilarino helped put away a close game late in the second half, maneuvering around five defenders then squirting her second goal past the goalkeeper.
    Lisa Munyon also turned in a good performance for the Black Tornado, which improved to 2-2 on the year.
    Kaily Winther scored both Churchill goals, in the 60th and 62nd minutes.
    Downie knocked in her two scores in the seventh and 11th minutes of the first half, ending with the Indians (4-1-1 overall) leading 3-0 at the break.
    Crater (2-2) goal keeper Chelsie Louie held her ground despite 25 shots on goal for Roseburg.
    EAGLE POINT 5, MAZAMA 1- At Eagle Point, Terra Jackson scored a hat trick as Eagle Point held Mazama to two shots on goal and, at 5-1, is off to the best start in school history.
    Defensively, the Eagles have surrendered just four shot attempts in the last three games.
    Alissa Goslin opened up the scoring in the 15th minute of the first half with Jackson adding two goals and Ali Rotar one to close out the first half.
    Jackson capped the Eagle Point scoring with her final goal in the closing minutes of the contest.
    Lois Evans scored the lone Mazama goal in the 28th minute of the second half.
    CASCADE CHRISTIAN 1, ROGUE RIVER 0- Crystal Humphries provided the lone goal just six minutes into the game during a non-conference win over Rogue River.
    Defensively, Jessica Urton, Carrie Longan, Kayla Zielke, Natasha Gerig, Julie Pederson and goal keeper Gennesa Collette all contributed to the shutout win.
    Cascade Christian improved to 1-1-1 on the season.
    Boys
    NORTH MEDFORD 1, CHURCHILL 0- At Eugene, senior forward Zach Taylor's goal three minutes in was all the Black Tornado needed.
    Junior forward Ian Norgan sprang Taylor with a through pass, then Taylor beat two Lancers defenders before launching a shot from 15 yards out.
    North (2-1-1 overall) outshot Churchill, 13-4, and owned a 5-1 edge in corner kicks.
    Senior fullback Justin Bilodeau and senior midfielders Kedric Charlton and Dan Torrey led the Tornado charge.
    North finishes its pre-league slate at Springfield on Thursday.
    ASHLAND 4, NORTH BEND O- At Ashland, the Grizzlies scored three times in the second half to pull away for a non-conference victory.
    Despite outshooting North Bend 16-1 in the first half, Ashland couldn't get on the board until Beaver crossed the ball to a wide open Fain, who headed a shot into the far corner with just under two minutes left.
    Beaver quickly put the Grizzlies up 2-0 three minutes into the second half and Christlieb tacked on another goal 16 minutes later.
    Ashland's goal keeper, Josh Dunn, has yet to be scored on this season.
    ROSEBURG 2, CRATER 0- At Roseburg, center midfielder Josh Carlson converted a first-half penalty kick and fullback Brent Randall volleyed home a second-half goal to give the Indians a non-conference win.
    Crater (1-2 overall) outshot Roseburg (4-0-2) 16-7 and had its best opportunity in the second half on consecutive shots from senior forwards Jason Bell and Eric Vilks.
    District 6
    ST. MARY'S 1, ROGUE RIVER 0- At Rogue River, sophomore striker Chris Burwell scored the game's only goal in the 35th minute as St. Mary's held off pesky Rogue River.
    The goal came following a corner kick that was headed toward the goal by Daniel Pires. Burwell used his own head to finish the job.
    Sweeper Jordan Frankel and goalie Greg Gradwell had strong performances on the defensive end for St. Mary's, which improved to 3-1 in District 6 play.
    Rogue River fell to 1-3.
