North outlasts Crater in 3 overtimes

LAKE OSWEGO — Megan Fossen delivered a career-high 18 points and Savannah Bumgardner proved clutch in triple overtime for the North Medford girls basketball team on Tuesday.

Bumgardner hit the game-winning baseline jumper from 10 feet out with one second left on the clock — the only basket of the third extra session — to give the Black Tornado a 54-52 edge in the third round of the Game Day Bracket at the Nike Interstate Shootout at Lake Oswego High School.

The victory set the Black Tornado (7-2) up to play tournament host Lake Oswego, while the Comets (7-4) will take on Glencoe. Both games tipoff at 11:30 a.m. today.

“Savvy, she hit a big shot for us,” said North Medford coach Tim Karrick of Bumgardner.

With Crater’s focus on shutting down North Medford’s leading scorer sophomore Maggie Freeman, who was limited to just eight points, the door was open for the likes of the sophomore post Fossen.

“That’s what good teams are gonna do, take away Maggie,” said Karrick. “Crater did a good job taking her out but other players stepped up.”

“We’ve been waiting for her,” said Karrick of Fossen. “This was kind of her coming out party.”

Fossen finished 7-for-10 from the field with a pair of 3-pointers to go with seven rebounds.

Bumgardner went 5-for-5 for 12 points and scooped up three steals while Freeman added five boards and three assists to her eight points. Rylee Karrick chipped in 11 points.

The loss was a disappointing one for the Comets, who were in control with a nine-point lead midway through the fourth quarter. Crater lost senior guard Cheyenne Scott to foul trouble with about four minutes remaining, which played into some struggles down the stretch that helped the Black Tornado claw back.

Senior guard Destiny Fahndrich scored a career-high 25 points to go with five rebounds and three steals for the Comets, who also received a career-high 10 assists from junior guard Mallory Heard. Heard added seven points and five boards.
