North Medford falls in third-place game

LAKE OSWEGO — After escaping with narrow victories in its first two games at the Nike Interstate Shootout, North Medford stumbled down the stretch.

The Black Tornado finished the four-day event with a 47-23 loss to Westview for third place in the Game Day bracket Friday at Lake Oswego High.

For the second straight game, North was held to a season low 23 points. On Thursday, North lost to Sherwood in the semifinals, 29-23.

“We didn’t come out with any intensity and didn’t execute well,” said North Medford coach Tim Karrick.

The Black Tornado (8-4), which finished sixth in the tournament, fell behind 8-0 to start the game.

North Medford shot just under 25 percent from the field (9-for-40), while the Wildcats were 20 of 36.

Sophomore guard Nicole Flennaugh had the hot hand for the Wildcats (4-3) with 20 points, including six 3-pointers.

“We didn’t match their focus and determination,” said Karrick. “We tried to battle back but could never put a run together.”
