The ACCS Lady Rebels could not overcome the talent and size of Copiah Academy as the Lady Colonels cruised to a 46-21 victory.

The first quarter was a rough one for the Lady Rebels as they could not get a single shot from the field to fall and their only point came at the free throw line. By the time the quarter was over, the Lady Colonels had a 17-1 advantage.

The second quarter was not much better as Copiah Academy outscored ACCS 11-6 for a 28-7 halftime lead. The Lady Rebels (1-6) did play better defensively in the third quarter, but still trailed 30-12 by quarter’s end.

Bella Givens led the Lady Colonels with 14 points. Drue Boyd made two three-pointers and led the Lady Rebels in scoring with nine points while Halle Peterman contributed with six points.

ACCS returned its home court on Friday afternoon to take on Riverfield Academy for five games starting at 1 p.m. with the seventh-grade boys game, followed by both junior varsity games, and capping off with the two varsity games.
