Published 12:00 am Thursday, February 2, 2006

WOODVILLE &8212; It may have been Senior Night, but Tuesday night&8217;s game was important for the Wilkinson Christian Lady Rams as they were trying to give Amite School Center its first loss in District 6-A this season.

Things didn&8217;t go well for the Lady Rams as the Lady Rebels dominated the first three quarters of the game, especially on defense, en route to a 44-21 win

No one can deny that the Lady Rebels (11-0, 15-16) are clearly the best team in this district, and they proved it by holding the Lady Rams to just two points in the first quarter and a mere one point in the third quarter.

Once the third quarter was over, Amite School Center had a commanding 32-11 lead.

Britton Harden led the Lady Rebels with 16 points.

Tensas 48, Huntington 33

ST. JOSEPH &8212; Tensas (7-0, 22-4) trailed Huntington (3-4, 7-17) 9-6 after one quarter of play and 12-6 at one point in the second quarter.

Tensas went on a 14-2 run the rest of the second quarter to take a 20-14 lead at halftime.

Tensas outscored Huntington 18-11 in the third quarter and led by as many as 17 points in the fourth quarter.

The Lady Chiefs have now won 27 straight district games.

Oak Forest 36, ACCA 32

AMITE, La. &8212; Despite winning 20 games and earning the No. 1 seed in the District 3-AA Tournament, Lady Rebels head coach John Gray has not been pleased with the effort of the team on offense.

That lack of effort by Adams Christian (20-6) showed in the second half of a stunning loss against a Lady Yellow Jackets team that has also struggled on offense the last couple of weeks, yet rallied behind a 10-5 advantage in the fourth quarter.

&8220;We struggled again. It was one of those nights,&8221; Gray said. &8220;We only scored (seven) points the entire second half.&8221;

The Lady Rebels were just 1-of-13 from the field in the third quarter and 2-of-11 in the fourth quarter &8212; this after they outscored Oak Forest (13-8) 12-5 in the second quarter to take a 25-22 halftime lead.

Brittany Gamberi led Adams Christian with 15 points.

Harrisonburg 52, Cathedral 44

NATCHEZ &8212; The Lady Bulldogs jumped out to a 17-8 lead over Cathedral (3-14) at the end of the first quarter and led 31-18 at halftime. The Lady Green Wave outscored the Lady Bulldogs 13-8 in the third quarter, but they couldn&8217;t sustain that momentum in the fourth quarter.

Kristen Dobard led Cathedral with 13 points.

Jefferson 30, Raymond 24

FAYETTE &8212; Jefferson County (4-5, 8-11) played solid defense the entire game, but it needed a 14-point first quarter to come away with the win.

Raymond kept chipping away at Jefferson County&8217;s lead in the second and third quarters, but their offense sputtered at the worst possible time &8212; in the fourth quarter when the Lady Rangers managed just four points.

Stacy Thomas led the Lady Tigers with a game-high 13 points.

Davidson 51, Vidalia 24

ST. JOSEPH &8212; Vidalia (0-20) held its own against Davidson in the second quarter and trailed by 11 at halftime.

But a 15-2 advantage by the Lady Warriors put the game away. Chelsea McElwee led Vidalia with 10 points.

Jim Hill 67, Natchez High 55

JACKSON &8212; Had it not been for the first quarter, this Division 6-5A game would have gone down to the wire. However, that was not meant to be as the Lady Tigers outscored the Lady Bulldogs 24-13 in that opening quarter en route to the 12-point win.

Ke&8217;Airra Jones led Natchez High (0-5, 5-14) with 20 points.

Block 72, Ringgold 62

RINGGOLD, La. &8212; This District 3-1A game was also a game within a game between Block&8217;s Ashley Green and Ringgold&8217;s Tarkedira Hall.

Ashley Green led Block (4-1, 13-8) with a game-high 31 points, but she had more help from her teammates than did Hall, who led Ringgold (1-4, 7-13) with 30 points.

Corinthia Green had 15 points to lead the Lady Bears.
