Published 12:01am Wednesday, November 28, 2012

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.

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.

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