|Ferriday has busy week|
Ferriday High's boys and girls picked up two wins in less than 24 hours as the Trojans swept Jonesboro-Hodge Friday night before claiming a sweep of Sterlington Saturday afternoon in a make-up game that was postponed Jan. 25 because of icy conditions.
"It was a backbreaker," said Ferriday boys coach K.G. Watkins. "We got back in from Jonesboro-Hodge about 1 a.m. and then got back up on the road at nine the next morning. It was real trying physically. But the kids handled it well. They slept on the way up and back and slept all the way to Monroe,"
The Trojan boys remained unbeaten by rallying from an eight-point halftime deficit to defeat Jonesboro-Hodge 71-69 on Friday.
Ferriday outscored J-H 25-17 in the final quarter to pull out the two-point win.
Matthew Smith, who hit four clutch free throws in the last minute, led Ferriday with a season-high 26 points.
Josh Upchurch added 20 points, while Montrell Tennessee scored 13.
"Our seniors really stepped up in this game," Watkins said. "They played magnificently. And our defense stepped up and kept them from taking a shot in the last seconds. We got out of there just as soon as the buzzer went off."
Ferriday defeated Sterlington easily Saturday to clinch the District 2-2A championship.
Ferriday defeated the Panthers 66-38.
Ferriday led Sterlington 21-11 after one period and extended that lead to 37-15 at halftime after outscoring the Panthers 16-4 in the second period.
"We were able to rest some guys in the second half and the guys on our bench did a decent job," Watkins said.
Ferriday outscored Sterlington 13-12 in the third period and 16-11 in the final quarter.
Watkins will meet with other 2A coaches on Feb. 19 to seed the teams for the playoffs under a new playoff system.
"Each coach seeds the teams and it just depends on what position we get as to how we will do," Watkins said. "This is all new and I don't know how it is going to come out. I really don't like it."
Ferriday's girls defeated Jonesboro-Hodge 65-52 Friday.
The Lady Trojans led 19-8 after one period before the Lady Tigers cut that lead to 25-22 at halftime.
Ferriday led 42-37 going into the final quarter.
Shanice Poole led Ferriday with 20 points, while Jasmine Upchurch added 18 and Jasmine Butler 17.
"That was a very tough game," said Ferriday coach Lisa Abron. "I was really proud of the girls. I told them in the fourth quarter to suck it up and remember why we came here. It was another hurdle in our goal to win district and stepped up to the challenge."
Ferriday's girls defeated Sterlington, 46-23.
Those road trips wore us out," Abron said. "Fortunately we didn't have a tough time with Sterlington. But it took a lot out of the girls."
Upchurch led Ferriday with 12 points against Sterlington, while Ja'Lessia Davis added 11.
Ferriday and Lake Providence's girls are working to meet Monday in Mangham for a tiebreaker game if the Lady Trojans win today.
