South Medford falls to No. 9 team in nation

HONOLULU, Hawaii — The South Medford girls basketball team gave the nation’s ninth-ranked team all it could handle in the first half but things began to unravel for the Panthers thereafter in the ‘Iolani Prep Classic on Friday.

Washington State-bound star Chenelle Molina scored 10 of her 26 points for Konawaena in the third quarter and the Wildcats pulled away for a 62-48 victory at ‘Iolani School.

“We didn’t play four quarters of basketball and it really cost us,” said Panthers coach Tom Cole. “I felt like we played pretty well with them but we didn’t execute in the third quarter. Hopefully this will be a good learning experience and we can regroup tomorrow.”

The Panthers (2-1) will play for third place at 6:30 tonight against the loser of Bishop O’Dowd and tournament host ‘Iolani.

The Wildcats (8-0) held a 38-34 halftime lead but outscored South Medford 17-6 in the third quarter.

Julissa Tago paced the Panthers with 13 points and four assists and Hannah Washington recorded 12 points and nine rebounds. Jasmin Falls pulled down 12 rebounds to go with eight points for South.
