NATCHEZ — The Rebels knew they would be in for a tough game against the Pioneers, the No. 1 team in Class AAA. Little did they know just how tough it would be.

Despite having not played since last Monday, Parklane (13-0) came out sharp in the first quarter on offense and defense. The Pioneers scored 24 points while holding the Rebels (4-13) to six points.

And even though Parklane did tail off quite a bit offensively in the second quarter with only eight points, its defense continued to dominate as ACCS managed just four points and trailed 32-10 at halftime.

Matthew Marks led the Rebels with 10 points and Luke Brumfield chipped in with five points.
