Roseburg girls deal cold-shooting South a home loss

Was it Roseburg's man-to-man defense or just poor shooting.

Some of both, it seems.

The South Medford girls basketball team shot a frigid 28 percent from the field on Friday night and the result was a 48-42 Southern Oregon Conference defeat to the Indians.

Roseburg's Jordan Crossfield led all scorers with 20 points.

We just had a tough time scoring in the second half, said South Medford coach Andrea Wegner, whose Panthers fell to 1-1 in the SOC and 4-3 overall. They played some tough man defense but we missed some very makeable shots, and that's really not like us.

The Panthers were far more accurate at the free throw line, where they sank 10 of 11 attempts.

South Medford clung to a 34-33 lead entering the fourth period but managed just eight points over the final eight minutes.

The surprising Indians, who were picked to finish sixth in the SOC in a preseason coaches poll, are now 2-0 in the SOC and 4-3 overall. Their win over the Panthers marked their first road win of the season.

Lindsay Johnson added 11 points for Roseburg.

Sophomore wing Kellie Thomas was the lone Panther in double figures with 10.
