|Ferriday tips off district with wins|
Fans walking into the Ferriday High gym at halftime of the girls game may have thought there was something wrong with the scoreboard clock.
But, no, there was no light out or malfunction, the Lady Trojans did indeed lead Sterlington 42-4.
"We made it a personal goal to play better defense," said Ferriday girls coach Lisa Abron. "We have to learn to stop people. Our press was very effective in the first half. They did not have a good ball-handler."
Sterlington outscored Ferriday's substitutes 16-10 in the second half to make the final score 52-20.
"It was a good way to start district," Abron said. "We wanted to make a statement to the rest of the district."
Jasmine Butler led Ferriday with 12 points, while Jasmine Upchurch added 10.
In the boys contest, Ferriday broke open a close game in the second quarter on its way to a 61-42 win.
After leading 12-10 after one period of play, the Trojans outscored the Panthers 20-7 in the second period to teak a 32-17 halftime advantage.
The Trojans outscored the Panthers 29-25 in the second half.
Josh Upchurch and Montrell Tennessee led Ferriday with 16 points each, while DeMarco Lewis added 12.
"The guys were wanting to come out and play well in the district opener, and even though we played well at times, I think we were overly aggressive in some cases and made some defensive mistakes," said Ferriday coach K.G. Watkins. "We couldn't seem to get in a groove. But a good team always finds a way to win, even when you are not playing as well as expected. I was satisfied with the effort."
Ferriday visits Lake Providence Friday before hosting Jonesboro-Hodge Tuesday.
