Crater girls shoot past North Medford

January 25, 2014

The Crater girls basketball team needed someone to step up with one of its top scorers tightly defended on Friday night.

As North Medford's Alexia Hall helped to limit Courtney Setzer to a season-low three points, the Comets got key contributions from others in a 50-30 victory over the Black Tornado in Southern Oregon Hybrid action at North Medford High.

Mallory Heard had 10 points, Destiny Fahndrich nine points and seven rebounds and Bailey Bascom and Becca Heard eight points apiece for Crater, which knocked down four of its seven 3-pointers in first quarter to force North to extend its defense.

"That was the difference," North head coach Tim Karrick said.

The Comets (14-3, 3-2 SOH) took an 18-10 lead in the first quarter and held a 25-14 advantage at halftime.

"The other kids played really well," Crater head coach David Heard said. "They did a really good job on Setzer and everyone started shooting the ball a lot better. ... We haven't been shooting the ball that great, honestly. We were having a hard time scoring and we really needed some kids to make shots. They were playing man but really were focused on Courtney."

Setzer, who had 25 points and 16 rebounds the last time the two teams met, grabbed 10 rebounds.

"(Hall) did a really great job defending her," Karrick said.

Joci Ellis recorded 14 points and four steals to led North (7-8, 1-4).
