GP fends off Thurston in 65-55 win

SPRINGFIELD — Grants Pass went 8-for-8 from the free-throw line in the final period to stave off a late rally and defeat Thurston 65-55 in nonconference girls basketball Monday.

The Cavers (4-1) received 19 points from Kayla Loffer and 14 points apiece from Natasha Torgerson and Amber Franko.

"Kayla played the type of game we've expected from her all season, getting to the basket and not turning the ball over," said Grants Pass coach Robert Lingo. "With her going through four defenders and laying it in, I'm sure that was tough for (Thurston's) coach to watch."
