The battle between former MPSA District South AAAA rivals was over almost as quickly as it began.

The most points ACCS scored in any of the four quarter was six, in the first and fourth quarters as Jackson Prep used nearly every possible defense to disrupt the Lady Rebels.

&uot;Our kids played well early. We missed some shots that would’ve kept us in the game,&uot; Pickle said. &uot;We also had too many turnovers. Hopefully we learned from our mistakes and we’ll be a better ball team.&uot;

Lauren Wade had eight points, five rebounds and three steals and Meghan King had six points, three steals and connected on a three-pointer for Jackson Prep.

Casey Stutzman led ACCS with seven points and five rebounds. Brandi Case had four points, four rebounds and three steals.
