Prep girls roundups: First quarter dooms Cathedral against Salem

TYLERTOWN — If the Cathedral High School girls’ basketball team got a do-over for its first-quarter performance Tuesday night, it might have brought home a victory.

The Lady Green Wave fell behind 17-5 after one quarter of play and, despite playing well the rest of the game, fell 42-35 at Salem High School.

Sally Stout led the way with 11 points for Cathedral, and Taylor Beesley and Crystal Beckwith each had eight points.

The Green Wave managed to win the final three quarters 30-25, but the first-quarter deficit was too much to overcome.

Cathedral (3-3) will begin play in the Monterey Tournament Thursday.

Bowling Green 56, ACCS 24

FRANKLINTON, La. — The Bowling Green School girls’ basketball team left little doubt about who would win its contest with Adams County Christian School Tuesday night.

The Lady Buccaneers scored 19 points in the first quarter and 22 in the second quarter to take a 41-9 lead into the half.

The Lady Rebels managed to play the game even in the second half, but dropped to 2-6 overall on the season after their 56-24 defeat.

Tory Laird led ACCS with eight points, and Nikki Worthey finished with seven.

ACCS will host Hillcrest Christian School Thursday.

Franklin Parish 72, Vidalia 31

WINNSBORO, La. — Taylor Tennessee’s 12 points were not nearly enough to push the Vidalia girls’ basketball team to a win over Franklin Parish Tuesday night.

The Lady Patriots dominated the contest and finished with a 72-31 victory that pushed the Lady Vikings to 0-3 on the season.

Tennessee was the only Vidalia player in double digits in the contest, and Tierra Bell and Andrea Foster chipped in with four points apiece.

Vidalia will play in the Tensas Parish Tournament beginning Thursday.

Silliman 47, Trinity 17

CLINTON, La. — Silliman Institute managed to jump on top of Trinity Episcopal Day School Tuesday night early and put their contest out of reach by halftime.

Silliman took a 40-5 lead into the break and cruised to a 47-17 victory over Trinity (0-4).

Marty Lewis led the Lady Saints with nine points in the game, and Carmen St. Clair was the second leading scorer with three points.

Trinity will host Centreville Academy Thursday.

Monterey 36, LaSalle 29

OLLA, La. — Kristin Russell scored 14 points for the Monterey High School girls’ basketball team Tuesday night to lead the Lady Wolves to a win.

Monterey used a big third quarter, which saw it outscore LaSalle High School 12-4, to push out to a seven-point lead that would be the difference in the 36-29 win.

Kaley Baker scored eight points, and Reagan Tiffee added seven for the Lady Wolves who improved to 7-1 on the season.

Monterey will play Thursday as the host of the Monterey tournament.
