Prep hoops: Laird, Lady Rebels win big

NATCHEZ — Adams County Christian School’s Tory Laird almost scored as many points by herself as Monterey High School had as a team as the Lady Rebels remained undefeated on the season after defeating the Lady Wolves 63-25 Monday night.

Laird finished with a game-high 22 points as ACCS led Monterey 19-10 at the end of the first quarter. That nine-point deficit would be the closest the Lady Wolves would get as the Lady Rebels dominated the second and third quarters to open up a huge lead.

Led by Laird, Rachel House, Jordan Petty and Anna McDaniel, the Lady Rebels outscored the Lady Wolves 19-7 in the second quarter to take a 38-17 lead into halftime. The third quarter was even worse for Monterey as it once again was held to seven points while ACCS scored 22 points for a 60-24 lead.

House ended up with 13 points while Petty added nine points and McDaniel had seven points for the Lady Rebels. Karlee Woodruff led the Lady Wolves with five points while Morgan Pecanty, Carli Scott and Emily Woodrumm had four points each.

With Lady Rebels head coach Melanie Hall and Monterey head coach Cary Shivley going to their reserves, scoring was at a premium in the fourth quarter. ACCS put up three points while Monterey scored just one point.

Monterey (2-1) plays host to Forest at 6 p.m. today. ACCS (4-0) next plays at 6 p.m. Thursday at Central Private School.
