Michelle Guedon led ACCS with 14 points. Ariana DeLaSalle had 12 points and Katie Anne Swinny added 11 points as the Lady Rebels took a commanding 20-6 lead at the end of the first quarter and never looked back.

The only bright spot for the Lady Cougars was Jamie Plunkett, who scored a game-high 18 points. That was because the Lady Rebels&8217; defense was just too much for them as they were held in single digits in all but the third quarter.

WINNSBORO, La. &8212; It was a game that Kaitlen Emfinger will remember and one that the host Lady Cougars would rather forget at the Franklin Academy Cotton Classic Friday afternoon.

Emfinger finished with a game-high 30 points &8212; one point more than the Lady Cougars (0-3) had as a team.

Mary Miller Ratcliff had a good game as well with 18 points for the Lady Chiefs (2-5).

Tensas took a 17-7 lead after one quarter of play and put the game out of reach with a 14-0 advantage in the second quarter for a 31-7 halftime lead.

Courtney Chapman led the Lady Cougars with 13 points.

Riverfield girls 54, Huntington 47

RAYVILLE, La. &8212; Cassie Antley scored a game-high 22 points and the Lady Raiders played solid defense in the middle two quarters as they held on to defeat the Lady Hounds.

Riverfield (1-1) held a 14-13 lead at the end of the first quarter, but the Lady Raiders held Huntington (0-4) to just nine points in the second quarter and seven in the third quarter.

All the while, Riverfield increases its lead to 37-29 by the time the third quarter was over. The Lady Hounds got their offense going again in the fourth quarter, but their defense couldn&8217;t come up with the big stops it needed to.

Katie Moak led the Lady Hounds with 13 points. Kelsie Cheek contributed with 13 points for the Lady Raiders.

Huntington boys 70, Riverfield 39

RAYVILLE, La. &8212; A tenacious defense, a balanced scoring attack and a big first quarter helped contributed to the Hounds&8217; big win over the Raiders.

Huntington (1-1) was led by Stan Hazlip with 16 points and Antonio Jordan with 11 points. The Hounds&8217; depth was key as 10 players got into the scoring column.

Defensively, the Hounds were relentless except in the second quarter, when Riverfield (0-2) managed to score 17 points. But even with that, the Raiders couldn&8217;t overcome a 22-8 deficit after one quarter of play and still trailed 41-25 at halftime.

Brandon Hutchinson had 14 points and Jeff Horn added 11 points for Riverfield.
