MEDFORD, Ore.--The South Medford Panthers were well aware of their recent struggles in first-round playoff games.
In fact, it was openly discussed as motivation for everything they did this season.
On Friday night at Spiegelberg Stadium, it was clear the Panthers were out to put to rest the talk of their playoff misfortunes.
In fact, the only history that seemed to matter was their opponent's winless streak against teams with winning records that dated back to 2013.
And with that, No. 5 South Medford dominated in all facets en route to a 63-0 win over No. 28 Gresham.
Wide receiver Chase Cota caught a pair of touchdown passes--one of the one-handed variety, another that was from over 60 yards out. Running back Jaylin Parnell ran for two touchdowns, and his backup Terrence Butler, cashed in for four of his own.
The Panthers will stay at home next week as they host No. 12 Lincoln--a team that like South Medford, brings in an eight-game winning streak.
