ACCS shows Amite no mercy

Published 12:01am Saturday, December 14, 2013

NATCHEZ — The Adams County Christian School Lady Rebels sought to prove a point Friday night in their MAIS district opener against Amite School Center as they breezed their way to a 67-10 victory.

The Lady Rebels saw even scoring amongst their roster though Bailey Boyd and Ashleigh Williams led with 12 points each.

Klancie Fair scored six of Amite’s 10 points.

ACCS head coach Melanie Hall said she was pleased with her team’s performance.

“We have had different players step up and have good games individually, but as a team, everybody that was able to play, played their hearts out and everyone brought something to the table,” Hall said.

“It just makes me feel so good for my kids, and I know the time and the work they put in and it does my heart good.”

ACCS jumped out early with a 21-point first quarter and only allowed two points by Fair.

Hall said their defense played a huge factor Friday.

“They executed and they did it together,” she said. “We played zone and man-to-man and gave them different looks. The communication was really good as well.”

Amite saw a boost in the second quarter with six points but it was no match for the Lady Rebels’ 24 points to take the lead 45-8 at the half.

Amite only scored once more in the second half on a lay up by Fair, but ACCS pulled out 22 more points to annihilate Amite 67-10.

The Lady Rebels will take a week off to focus on finals, but will return to the court to play at Bowling Green at 6 p.m. Friday.

ACCS boys 73, Amite School Center boys 43

The Adams County Christian School Rebels took their first win from Amite School Center 73-43 on double-digit scoring from Ryan Strong, Brandon Crook and Brody Cole.

Strong had 11 points while Brook and Cole both had 10 points in the win.

Five other Rebls added significant scoring as Devin Spear and Lester Wells had six points and Jay Fleming added five points.

Trey Fleming and Chris Guedon also tallied four points each to give the Rebels several scoring threats.

Cason Choute scored 15 points and Drew Caston added 10 points for Amite.

Amite also saw prominent scoring by Mason Connerly, David Legondecker and Clayton Causty, but it wasn’t enough to handle the Rebels.

The Rebels came out strong with a 26-point first quarter and only allowed Amite four points.

Amite toughened up in the second quarter and stayed neck and neck with the Rebels as they both scored 17 to give ACCS a 43-21 lead at halftime.

But the Rebels separated themselves in the second half, outscoring Amite 13-9 in the third quarter and 17-13 in the final quarter to win their first district match.

ACCS returns to their district schedule to take on Bowling Green at 7:30 Friday.
