Chamberlin's career-high 37 leads Panthers

CANBY — South Medford sophomore guard Ula Chamberlin scored a career-high 37 points as the eighth-ranked South Medford girls basketball team beat No. 9 Canby, 73-67, in the nonleague season opener at Canby High on Friday night.

Chamberlin was 11 of 22 from the field and 14-for-18 at the free-throw line with four rebounds and four steals for the Panthers, who led 19-11 after the first quarter and 36-32 at halftime. The 37 points is a sophomore school record.

Lauren Orndoff recorded 14 points, seven rebounds, four assists and four steals and Hannah Washington 11 points, 11 rebounds and four steals for South Medford, which was upset by the Cougars, 50-48, in the state quarterfinals last winter.

Canby tied things up in the third before South Medford freshman Bella Pedrojetti knocked down a timely 3-pointer. She finished with seven points, four rebounds and two assists, and Jonnay Foote added four points and five steals.

South Medford, fueled by Chamberlin's aggressiveness, outscored Canby in the final frame, 23-17.

Washington and Pedrojetti both ran into foul trouble, finishing with four each.

"I was really proud with the way the kids fought it out," South Medford coach Tom Cole said. "It was a physical game and I thought our kids responded to the challenge."

The Panthers play at No. 3 Clackamas today.
