Gresham beats South Medford, 3-0 Wednesday, October 31, 2007

South Medford senior Carli Sash goes on the attack in game 3 of the Panthers' match at Gresham Wednesday night. South Medford was eliminated from the playoffs with a 25-22, 25-17, 25-15 loss to the fourth-ranked Gophers.

The Gresham Gophers advanced to the second round of the playoffs with a win at home Wednesday night over unranked South Medford.

After falling behind 9-3 in game 1, the fourth-ranked Gophers came back to take the match 25-22, 25-17, 25-15. They play no.-7 West Salem Saturday. That team had a bye in the first round.

The officiating in the match was questionable, but balanced. The referees missed a four- or five-hit play on South Medford's side and called in some Panther hits that landed long, but also called South Medford for lifting on a clear single-arm save.
