Lady Rebels head coach Chuck Bauerle praised his players for their effort, energy and discipline in the game. Bauerle also was pleased that they did a better job on turnovers.

&8220;I thought we played well. I thought in the game against Tensas (Monday) we played with a lot of intensity, but we had a lot of turnovers. Today we had just 11 turnovers.&8221;

Led by DeLaSalle and Guedon, ACCS (7-1) dominated both ends of the court in the first quarter en route to a 15-4 lead at the end of the quarter.

&8220;Ariana had a big game inside and Laura had a good game,&8221; Bauerle said. &8220;I thought our press worked well. We shot the ball well. I thought we learned a lot the last few games.&8221;

Nicole Thornton led Oak Forest (2-5) with 17 points.

Huntington boys 84, Amite School Center 30

FERRIDAY &8212; With a final score like this, one would think that one or two players scored a lot of scored. That was not the case Tuesday night in the final game of the Huntington Doubleheader as the Hounds took a big lead, allowing head coach David Boydstun to unload his bench.

&8220;Our pressure defense was pretty strong,&8221; Boydstun said. &8220;We were able to jump out and get big leads and play a lot of kids.&8221;

Zack Brown led Huntington (3-1) with 13 points. Antonio Jordan had 12 points and Stan Hazlip contributed with 10 points. Altogether, 15 players scored at least one point for the Hounds, who took a 31-6 after one quarter of play and a 53-9 halftime lead.

&8220;We had a good night passing the ball, running off the ball on steals. We got some easy buckets. We shot the ball well from the perimeter,&8221; Boydstun said.

Huntington dominated this game from the start and the Rebels had no chance, especially considering that the Hounds have four post players that are at least six feet tall. And if that wasn&8217;t enough, Boydstun noted that Jordan has a 38-inch vertical leap.

&8220;All four of them are tough. Jordan can rebound with anybody,&8221; Boydstun said. &8220;We&8217;ve got a good rebounding group.&8221;

VIDALIA &8212; After getting off to a slow start, the Lady Tigers took control of the game in the second and third quarters as they defeated the Lady Vikings by 39 points Tuesday night.

Tysheka Rodgers had seven points to lead the Lady Vikings, who scored no more than six points in any of the four quarters.

Tensas Parish girls 69, Ferriday 39

ST. JOSEPH, La. &8212; The Lady Panthers gave Lisa Abron one of her worst losses as Lady Trojans&8217; head coach as they controlled both ends of the court in the first half and rolled to a 30-point win.

Tensas Parish outscored Ferriday (0-6) 14-6 in the first quarter and 18-9 in the second quarter for a commanding 17-point halftime lead. It didn&8217;t get any better for the Lady Trojans in the fourth quarter as they were outscored 20-6.

Riverfield girls 56, Tensas 47

FERRIDAY &8212; The Lady Chiefs had no answer for Cathy Antley, who scored a game-high 21 points as the Lady Raiders defeated the Lady Chiefs Tuesday afternoon at the Huntington Doubleheader.

Riverfield took an 18-10 lead over Tensas (2-7) after one quarter of play. The next two quarters were just about even. In fact, the Lady Chiefs outscored the Lady Raiders 30-28 over that span to cut the lead to six points.

&8220;We played better than we did against Adams Christian,&8221; Lady Chiefs head coach Allen Crigler said. &8220;We&8217;re gradually getting it straight. We have seven players and we had two that fouled out. We&8217;re young and we&8217;re small.&8221;

Riverfield took advantage of Tensas&8217; youth and foul trouble, but not by much as it had a 10-7 edge in the fourth quarter.

Kaitlen Emfinger led the Lady Chiefs with 13 points. Kelsey Doyle and Mary Miller Ratcliff had 12 points each.

Ferriday boys 85, Tensas Parish 67

ST. JOSEPH, La. &8212; The Panthers hung tough with the Trojans throughout the first half and trailed by just three points at halftime. But the second half was a completely different story as Ferriday scored 50 points en route to an 18-point win Tuesday night.

Marcus Hill, Ralph Johnson and Marcus Walker did their best to keep Tensas Parish High in the game. Hill scored a game-high 26 points. Johnson had 14 points and Walker chipped in with 12 points.

The Panthers were not intimidated by the Trojans and surprisingly outscored them 21-18 in the second quarter and were down just 35-32 at the half.
