South Medford Wins Conference Championship!

The South Medford Panthers beat the Sheldon Irish of Eugene tonight in Medford 31 to 27 to go 5 an O in conference play to win the Southwestern Conference and earn a first round bye in the State of Oregon playoffs. This is the first time South has beat Sheldon since they became a part of the conference. It was a hard game. Sheldon lead by 7 points a halftime and with 40 or so seconds in the game had three downs from the South 10 yard line. A touchdown would have won the game for the Irish.South held on to win the game. Congratulations South Medford. There was a big crowd and a nice night to watch football. The temperature was 60 degrees with a strong wind that caused leaves to swirl on the artificial turf of the football field. On to State! Go Panthers.(Click on title for a link to the OSAA 6A State Championship brackets)
