    <p>{/p}

    South Medford continued its early-season success in nonconference girls basketball against McNary Saturday.

    In their first home game of the season, the Panthers received contributions from the entire squad in posting an 82-38 victory over the school from Keizer.

    “We actually won the rebounding battle and had balanced scoring,” said South Medford coach Tom Cole, whose team has won six of seven games to open the season. “Every player scored.”

    Bella Pedrojetti had a good shooting night and led the Panthers with 20 points. Pedrojetti was 7 of 15 from the field and 5-for-6 on free throws. She also had five rebounds.

    Ula Chamberlin provided 16 points, five rebounds and two assists, and Kaili Chamberlin had 10 points, five rebounds, two assists and two steals.

    Shakia Teague-Perry was scoreless but came through with five rebounds, four assists and four steals.

    “Perry was quiet in terms of points,” said Cole, “but she had some really impressive moments and made things happen.”

    McNary (1-5) trailed 38-23 at halftime and never threatened after intermission.

    “There were lots of contributions and unselfishness,” said Cole. “The kids were sharing the ball and getting good shots.”
