GRANTS PASS — Annie Edgar's hard work in the paint led to a big night for the senior post and an even bigger victory for the Grants Pass girls basketball team on Friday.

Edgar compiled 19 points and 13 rebounds as the Cavers were able to hold off Crater 52-45 at Heater-Newman Memorial Gym.

The victory drew the Cavers (9-5, 3-2 SOH) even with the Comets (10-5, 3-2 SOH) for second place in Southern Oregon Hybrid play behind unbeaten South Medford.

"Annie did a real steady job all game long," said Grants Pass coach Scott Wakefield. "She works hard to get a lot of offensive rebounds. She wouldn't quit on the offensive boards and she got a lot of points off of them."

Edgar had eight rebounds on the offensive side and Kayla Bice also helped on the glass with eight rebounds to go with her 10 points.

Crater held a 37-36 lead heading into the fourth period, but Grants Pass limited the Comets to just eight points in the final period. Two of those points came inside the 3-point arc as the Cavers were able to deny Crater penetration inside the paint.

With the Cavers holding a slim lead inside the final minute, Alexa Phillips helped close out the Comets by knocking down four free throws.

After the Comets put up 20 points in the opening period, the Cavers limited them to just four in the second frame.

Brittaney Scott made five of Crater's eight 3-pointers, pacing the Comets with 17 points. Kasidy Cobb scored five of Crater's eight points in the fourth quarter and finished with 15.
