Published 12:02am Saturday, February 1, 2014

COLUMBIA, La. — It was a tough night for the Vidalia Vikings in general and Isiah Thompson in particular as they fell to the Caldwell Parish Spartans 80-69 Friday night in a key LHSAA District 3-3A game for both teams.

Vidalia got behind 19-13 after one quarter of play, only to cut into the margin over the next two quarters. The Vikings got to within three points at 55-52 at the end of three quarters before Caldwell Parish pulled away thanks to a 25-17 advantage in the fourth quarter.

Thompson was frustrated about shots not falling and he also got in foul trouble. He eventually fouled out in the fourth quarter and finished with just 10 points. Malik Jefferson led the Vikings with a game-high 26 points and Julius Wilson had 11 points.

Vidalia (N/A, 4-1) plays again at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Avoyelles High School.

Trinity Episcopal 77, Tallulah Academy 40

TALLULAH, La. — Michael Whitley led Trinity Episcopal with 25 points as the Saints remain undefeated after dispatching the Tallulah Academy Trojans 77-40 Friday night in MAIS District 7-A action.

Tommy McCoy scored 21 points and Arzell McCoy had 17 points for Trinity, which jumped out to a 25-9 lead after one quarter of play and then led the Trojans 54-20 at halftime.

Trinity Episcopal (18-0, 6-0) next plays at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Wilkinson County Christian Academy.

ACCS 65, Prentiss Christian 25

PRENTISS — Tyler Stockstill led Adams County Christian School with nine points and Hunter Lindsey had eight points as the Rebels took care of the Prentiss Christian School Saints 65-25 in an MAIS District 5-AA game Friday night.

ACCS dominated Prentiss Christian on both ends of the court for much of the first half. The Rebels led the Saints 28-6 at the end of the first quarter and by halftime the Rebels had a comfortable 48-13 lead.

With the win, ACCS (20-2, 7-1) clinched at least the No. 2 seed for next week’s MAIS District 5-AA Tournament, which begins Thursday at Central Hinds Academy.

Bogue Chitto 67, Cathedral 53

BOGUE CHITTO — Dennis Rogers led Bogue Chitto with a game-high 25 points and Damien Terrell added 16 points as the Bobcats defeated the Cathedral Green Wave 67-53 in an MHSAA Division 7-1A game Friday night.

The first quarter was a key factor in the outcome of this game. While Bogue Chitto was rolling on offense, Cathedral was not. The Bobcats put up 18 points in the opening quarter, while the Green Wave managed just eight points.

Jardarius Anderson ended up with 16 points, and James Coley chipped in with 12 points for Cathedral (7-10, 4-3), which hosts Piney Woods Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.
