|Vidalia boys score 32 in third quarter vs. Ferriday|
Vidalia High outscored Ferriday 32-11 in the third quarter to key a 61-46 win over the Trojans in the first day of the Sicily Island C.B. Coney Memorial Tournament.
It was the fifth meeting between both schools, including in their own respective tournaments, with Vidalia's boys winning all five games.
Ferriday, which won the tournament last year in a 57-56 thriller over Franklin Parish, led Vidalia 12-11 after one period and 23-21 at halftime before the Vikings exploded for 32 points in the third period.
"I know we've been close, but I don't know if I've ever had a team score that many points in a quarter," said Vidalia coach Robert Sanders. "We had a lot of point-blank shots and 3-point shots that didn't go in the first half. We were more patient in the second half and had better shot selection and the shots began to fall."
The Vikings has six 3-pointers in the third period, with Gary Stewart making three of his four in the quarter, while Chip Davis added two and Quartrell Thomas another.
Stewart led Vidalia with 18 points, while Thomas added 15 and Torrey Dixon 14.
Ferriday was led by DeMarco Lewis with 17 points and Carlton Robinson with 11.
Demarco Lewis had 17 points and Carlton Robinson had 11 points for Ferriday.

Franklin Parish defeated Block earlier in the day to knock the Bears out of the tournament.
Sicily Island cruised past Harrisonburg and faces Tensas Parish today.
Ferriday High's girls defeated Vidalia 67-15 Monday in a first-round game.
"I had a talk right before the game with the girls and was telling them how we haven't played up to our potential," said Ferriday girls coach Lisa Abron.
The Lady Trojans, who defeated Harrisonburg for the tournament title last year, jumped out to a 15-7 first quarter advantage and led 43-9 at halftime.
The Lady Trojans turned up the defensive pressure even more in the third period, shutting out Vidalia 18-0.
"We did a lot of good things defensively, which is what I've been focusing on," Abron said.
Jasmine Upchurch led Ferriday with 25 points. Jalessia Davis scored 14 points, while Chante Poole added 11.
Dejanae Harris led Vidalia with five points.
