MEDFORD –A decade’s worth of history and a frenetic pace for the South Medford girls basketball team proved decisive in Tuesday’s win over rival North Medford.

The Panthers extended their home win streak to 12 games (a streak that dates back to 2008) over the Black Tornado and denied them of an outright Southwest Conference title.

Led by 23 points from junior Ula Chamberlin, South led by 10 at the break and held on for a 51-47 win.

The teams exchanged big runs throughout the game, as the Panthers opened on a 12-3 run, while the Black Tornado controlled the third quarter to get back into it.

Megan Fossen led North Medford with 18 points. The loss means it’ll share the conference crown with Sheldon.

The Panthers meanwhile finish the regular season winners of four of five and will look to use Tuesday’s win as momentum heading into the playoffs.
