Senior Johanna Paine scored 20 points and senior Montana Walters added 18 to lead Oregon City to a 79-38 win at Southridge Friday night in a girls basketball game.

The win was just the second of the season for the Pioneers, who head to Hawaii for an eight-team tournament that begins Thursday.

Southridge dropped to 1-3 with the average loss coming by 28 points, although they've all been to teams expected to challenge for the state title.

"We didn't start off so strong, but after today's performance I think we're going to be pretty good," Walters said. "I think we all believe we can win state."

Defending state champion South Medford continued to roll through its season with a 70-58 win at St. Mary's Academy in Portland Friday to improve to 4-0.

The Panthers went 14-of-14 at the free-throw line in the win, which set them up for a game with title-contender Westview Saturday in the final of a four-team tournament. But, the teams played last week and elected to reschedule the game for later in the season.

South is prepping for an eight-team tournament in Maryland that begins Dec. 27.

Westview has a game scheduled Tuesday against a team visiting from Australia.
