Published 12:00 am Saturday, January 4, 2003

NATCHEZ &045; Just like their first game on Nov. 12 at Monterey, La., Friday night’s contest between the Monterey Lady Wolves and the Cathedral Lady Green Wave was a close, low scoring game.

Cathedral led by one point at halftime, but a nightmarish third quarter enabled Monterey to pull out a 38-30 win over the Lady Green Wave to improve to 13-5 on the season.

&uot;It was very similar to the game in Monterey,&uot; Lady Green Wave head coach Peter Arnold said. &uot;The game turned in the third quarter. We hit a drought. We couldn’t catch up with them.&uot;

Monterey then took advantage of Cathedral’s poor shooting and went on a 14-4 run in the third quarter to take a 29-20 lead going into the fourth quarter.

WOODVILLE &045; Despite playing a team that loves to play a slow tempo, the Wildcats still managed to pull out a seven-point win in a Division 7-3A game Friday night.

Timothy Jarvis led Wilkinson County (15-4, 4-1) with 24 points to help the Wildcats come back from a slow start.

&uot;We started off slow,&uot; Wildcats head coach Henry Story. &uot;We were down 9-0 at one point. Timothy Jarvis then started hitting the outside jumpers. At one time we were 0-for-something.&uot;

North Pike took a 13-8 lead at the end of the first quarter, but Wilkinson County outscored the Jaguars 16-7 in the second quarter

to take a 24-20 halftime lead.

&uot;The shots started falling in the second quarter,&uot; Story said. &uot;North Pike has the slow tempo game.&uot;
