Any hopes Roseburg had of earning its first win of the season dissipated in the second quarter Tuesday.

Any hopes Roseburg had of earning its first win of the season dissipated in the second quarter Tuesday.

South Medford outscored the visiting Indians 21-1 in that quarter, and the Panthers snapped a two-game skid with a 64-31 Southwest Conference girls win.

"The girls became more aggressive," South Medford coach Tom Cole said. "(Roseburg) played a good first quarter, but we did not play well defensively. We just finally stepped up some defensive pressure in the second quarter, which helped the offense."

Brittney Newcomb had 19 points and six steals and Sheena Barkley scored 13 and had four steals for the Panthers (9-8, 5-3 SWC). Jamie Batten (nine rebounds) and Lelani Morris (seven rebounds) helped South Medford corral 44 team rebounds, including 20 offensive.

The Panthers also amassed 20 steals against the Indians (0-14, 0-8 SWC).

South Medford's starters sat the majority of the second half. The Panthers play Friday at North Medford.

"We still have a lot of work to do, but certainly we are happy to get a win," Cole said. "We have to be prepared to play what is always going to be an emotional game (against North Medford). We've got to be prepared to come out and play a North team that is good and dangerous."
