HILLSBORO, Ore.—South Medford High School has made history for the second week in a row.

Thanks to a dominating 49-27 win over Lake Oswego Friday night in Hillsboro, the Panthers are surging into their first state title game in school history

"We're happy as punch,” South Medford head coach Bill Singler said. “These kids worked so hard to accomplish this kind of feat."

"We play foot loose and fancy free and that's what we did tonight,” senior wide receiver Jaalen Owens said. “We just played with no regrets and no worries."


"No one really picked us to win the game,” senior quarterback Robbie Patterson said. “There was one guy who picked us and we just kind of wanted to prove everyone wrong."

The win for the Panthers gives them their most in school history with 12 on the season. Two-seeded Clackamas awaits them in the 6A state title game. Kickoff is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. on Saturday at Reser Stadium in Corvallis.
