Woods carries Grizz past North

ASHLAND — Jackie Woods was a one-woman wrecking crew for Ashland as the senior post exploded for 27 points, 17 rebounds, seven assists and four steals to pace the Grizzlies to a 64-50 Southern Oregon Conference girls basketball victory over North Medford.

Our press bothered them, said Ashland coach Heather Roberts.

The Black Tornado trailed 15-6 after one period and 35-22 at halftime, but refused to collapse and got within eight points on a couple of occasions in the fourth period.

But 25 turnovers and an 8-for-21 showing at the free throw line crippled the comeback effort.

Senior post Ashley Nelson led North Medford with 21 points, 10 rebounds and four assists.

She's playing with a lot more composure in bigger games, North coach J.T. Thomas said. She did a lot of things to keep us in at least striking distance.

Ashland improved to 2-1 in the SOC and 9-4 overall with the win.

CRATER 63, EAGLE POINT (34) ?

At Eagle Point, second-ranked Crater played sluggishly through most of the first quarter but regrouped to post the SOC win.

Crater converted four turnovers into six points to take a 14-7 advantage after one quarter.

Then the Comets, who knocked off the nation's 12th-ranked team from Berkeley, Calif., in their previous game last Saturday, warmed up to the task in the second and third quarters.

Crater (11-1, 3-0 SOC) outscored the Eagles 40-22 in the middle 16 minutes.

Senior center Jody McLeod scored 14 points, while Sarah Pool added 11 more for the Comets, who picked up eight points and eight rebounds from Amy Denson and eight points and seven rebounds from Janell Sapienza.

Both teams lost players in the third quarter when posts Bre Johnson of Crater and Danelle Stanfield of tangled.

No one but the official saw what happened, Eagle Point coach Tim Rouhier said. He said both threw punches.

Dani Rouhier had 18 points to pace the Eagles (4-9, 0-1 SOC).

Denae Thomason and Alicia Pilcher combined for 17 second-half points for Grants Pass.

Megan Moon tied Higgins for team-high scoring honors and hauled down six rebounds.
