NATCHEZ — The Adams County Christian School Rebels lost to the Copiah Academy Colonels 22-5 in six innings last Friday afternoon in an MAIS District 3-5A match-up between two teams going in completely opposite directions.

Sean Kerry Cothern had the big hit of the game for ACCS with a three-run home run in the bottom of the third inning. And while that hit kept the Rebels in the game for much of the first four innings, Copiah Academy pulled away in the top of the fifth and sixth innings.

Gunner McKee had the key hit for the Colonels with a three-run home run of his own in the top of the fifth inning. That highlighted a seven-run barrage in that frame and then they scored 11 runs in the top of the sixth.
