Tonight my wife and I went to the South Medford vs. North Medford boy’s basketball game at the South Medford gym. South won the game 80 to 62 in a game that was closer than the score. South and North Medford play three games this season and up until tonight they had each won on their own court. Tonight was the tiebreaker and whoever won the game would sit alone on top of the SWC (South Western Conference). It was a very physical game with players on both teams being injured. Congratulations South Boys on the win you played your hearts out.
UPDATE: OREGONIAN REPORT ON THE GAME:
MEDFORD -- The raucous South Medford crowd was momentarily silenced in the third quarter at the sight of senior Michael Harthun lying on the court in pain.
Then, in the enduring image of a physical and passionate night of basketball, Harthun walked off the court with a thick streak of blood running down the left side of his face from a cut above his eye.
"I thought we were in trouble," South Medford junior Mitch Singler said. "I didn't think Mike could see." (To read the rest click on the title for a link)
