North pulls away from Crater

CENTRAL POINT — North Medford passed its test, remaining undefeated with a 60-39 nonconference girls basketball victory over Crater Tuesday.

“This was our first big test,” said Black Tornado coach Tim Karrick, “on the road at Crater, who had been pummeling us pretty good the last couple years.”

Unlike recent games against the Comets, North (4-0) took care of the ball and shot it well.

The Tornado opened a 24-14 halftime lead, saw Crater inch within six points, then pulled away.

“I thought we handled their press well,” said Karrick. “When we broke it, we executed well in the half court.”

Maggie Freeman had a solid all-around game and consistently set the Tornado offense in motion. The sophomore guard had 20 points, six rebounds, three assists and three steals. She was 6-for-6 on free throws.

Rylee Karrick scored 14 points, one of six North players with at least five points.

Adriane McLemore grabbed 12 rebounds and Savannah Bumgardner 10 for North.

Crater’s Destiny Fahndrich scored 14 points and Mallory Heard had 13 points, seven rebounds and three assists. Evie Kent added nine boards for the Comets (2-2).
