Cobb's hot shooting boosts Comets past Cavers

GRANTS PASS — Just when Grants Pass thought it slowed Crater, the Comets came up with another big shot.

With Kasidy Cobb making three of her four 3-pointers in the first quarter, Crater got off to a fast start and parlayed it into a 45-41 victory in the Southern Oregon Hybrid girls basketball opener for both teams Tuesday.

"In the first quarter," said Cavers coach Scott Wakefield, "we'd make them play for an extended period on offense, then Cobb was just bang, bang, bang. She separated them when she was making those 3s."

Cobb, a 5-foot-5 junior guard, scored 11 of her 20 points in the first period for Crater (7-2). She shot 7 of 11 from the field, including 4 of 7 on 3s. She also had five steals and three rebounds.

The Comets were picked to place second in the SOH, one spot ahead of Grants Pass (3-7).

Crater opened a 15-7 lead after one quarter.

"We played with them most of the night," said Wakefield, "but we spotted them a pretty healthy margin in the first, and having to play from behind against a good team is tough."

Katie Powell added 10 points and five rebounds for Crater, and point guard Beth McNichols had six assists.

"They're a nice scrappy team," said Comets coach J.T. Thomas, whose club was outscored 12-6 in the fourth. "They played through some of the adversity we gave them. I give them credit for putting themselves in position late. Obviously, we need to close out games better than we did tonight."

Annie Edgar tallied 17 points and nine rebounds for Grants Pass, and Courtney Smith added 13 points.
