Central Catholic rallies past Panthers in fourth quarter of top-10 clash South Medford had the makings of a tough season-opening boys basketball in its hands Friday night, but the Panthers let it slip away with a forgetful fourth quarter. Central Catholic, ranked No. 6 in the Class 6A preseason coaches poll, used a 12-2 run in the final four minutes to pry away a 48-42 victory over the No. 7 Panthers at South Medford High. 'It's a learning experience,' South Medford head coach James Wightman said.
