South girls fall to No. 3 Clackamas

CLACKAMAS — Tired legs caught up to South Medford’s eighth-ranked girls basketball team less than 20 hours removed from a season-opening win at No. 9 Canby.

Third-ranked Clackamas broke open a three-point game with four minutes to go and cruised to a 69-49 win over the visiting Panthers on Saturday.

South Medford led after one quarter and had the game tied at one point in the third quarter despite foul troubles for senior Lauren Orndoff. Ultimately, 25 turnovers proved to be the Panthers’ undoing against the talented Cavaliers.

“The wheels came off in the last four minutes,” said Panthers head coach Tom Cole. “I think we had six straight possessions with turnovers; we were just gassed out.”

Senior post Hannah Washington had 15 points, 15 rebounds and four steals for her second straight double-double for South Medford (1-1). Sophomore Ula Chamberlin had 11 points and four rebounds and freshman Bella Pedrojetti totaled nine points and five rebounds.

Alyson Miura scored 22 points and Brianna Phiakhamngon had 17 for Clackamas (1-0), which committed only 11 turnovers.
