ACCS Lady Rebels breeze past Centreville Academy

CENTREVILLE — Ashleigh Williams and Skylar Adams stepped up in a big way for the Adams County Christian School Lady Rebels in their 52-17 win over the Centreville Academy Lady Tigers Monday night.

With Tory Laird, one of ACCS’ leading scorers this season, struggling to get shots to fall, someone had to pick up the slack. Williams and Adams were more than up to the task as they led the Lady Rebels in scoring with 12 and 10 points, respectively. So did Tiffany Buckles, who finished with seven points. Laird was held to just four points.

Altogether, 11 players for ACCS found their way into the scoring column. And the game turned into a blowout not long after the opening tip. Centreville struggled against the Lady Rebels’ full-court defense in the first half. The Lady Tigers found themselves down 27-6 at the end of the first quarter and 43-10 at halftime.

Even with ACCS’ starters spending a lot of time on the bench in the second half with the outcome well in hand, not one player for Centreville managed to score in double figures. The Lady Tigers were led by Katelynn Bell with six points, while Marti Ann Longmire had four points.

ACCS (17-3) hosts Central Private School in a non-district game today at 6 p.m. Centreville Academy (9-6) returns to MAIS District 6-AA action at 6 p.m. today when it plays host to Silliman Institute.

Tensas Academy girls 48, River Oaks 38

MONROE, La. — Katie Irby led Tensas Academy with 12 points and Addison Capdepon added 11 points as the Lady Chiefs defeated the River Oaks School Lady Mustangs 48-38 Monday night.

The second quarter proved to be the key to Tensas Academy’s win as the Lady Chiefs outscored River Oaks 15-6 to take a 25-14 lead into halftime. Even though River Oaks played better offensively in the second half, they were only able to cut one point off the Lady Chiefs’ lead.

Symphony Phillips and Mariah Rogers did their best to keep the Lady Mustangs in the game, but they got very little help from their teammates. Phillips finished with a game-high 17 points and Rogers had 15 points.

Tensas Academy (9-10) will look to remain undefeated in MAIS District 7-A at 6 p.m. Friday when it visits Tallulah Academy. The Lady Chiefs are currently 2-0 in district play.

ACCS boys 73, Centreville Academy 34

CENTREVILLE — Lester Wells led Adams County Christian School with a game-high 14 points, and Trey Fleming added nine points as the Rebels rolled to a 73-34 win over the Centreville Academy Tigers Monday night.

Brandon Brooks chipped in with eight points and Devin Spear scored six points for ACCS, which saw 14 players reach the scoring column. Several players for the Rebels scored either three or four points.

Defense was another contributing factor to the Rebels’ lopsided win. They jumped out to a 22-6 lead on Centreville at the end of the first quarter and then they outscored the Tigers 20-10 in the second quarter for a commanding 42-16 halftime lead.

Austin Addington led Centreville with 11 points, and Michael Spangler had eight points.

Led by Zach Barnes, Jonathan Price and Taylor Tindall, the Mustangs outscored the Chiefs 21-7 in the second quarter and 13-2 in the third quarter for a commanding 45-19 advantage.
