BEND — In the past two seasons, Bend has been a roadblock for the North Medford girls basketball team.

That ended Friday when the Black Tornado downed the Lava Bears, 44-40, to finish third in the eight-team Summit Holiday Tournament.

It was their fourth meeting since the start of last season, and Bend won the previous three by a total of nine points.

"It was nice to get a win (against Bend)," said North coach Kailey Bostwick. "We wanted to beat them really bad and we pulled it out and that was nice."

Kendell Erb provided a spark off the bench, knocking down three 3-pointers in the third quarter for the Tornado (6-4).

With the Lava Bears clinging to a 31-26 lead heading into the final period, North continued its aggressive play by repeatedly getting to the free throw line, where it was 8 of 12.

"We've had trouble not staying composed in the fourth quarter, and tonight we did the exact opposite," said Bostwick. "We were aggressive, got to the line and made them pay there."

After Joci Ellis fouled out in the fourth quarter, Kendra Straub stepped up on the defensive end and provided the Tornado with steals and defensive intensity.

Ellis had seven points and McKensey Peters added eight for the North.
