|Ferriday sweeps Lake Providence|
Ferriday High's basketball team got a couple of key District 2-2A wins Friday, sweeping Lake Providence on their home court.
Ferriday's boys upset Lake Providence, 51-43.
"That was a big win for us," said first-year Trojan coach Glen Henderson. "I think the kids have just finally hit that learning curve and we're finally gelling. I had to tell them losing to Vidalia four times is not bad because Vidalia has a real good team. We've played a tough schedule and we're getting good leadership from Levier Pryor."
Ferriday's boys outscored Lake Providence 15-7 in the fourth quarter for a 51-43 win over the Panthers.
Ferriday, which went unbeaten in district play last year, but lost most of its starters, improved to 2-0 in district.
Ferriday led 14-7 after one period and 29-25 at halftime.
After being outscored 11-7 in the third period, Ferriday held the Panthers to seven points in the final quarter.
Carlton Robinson scored 19 points and Levier Pryor had 14 points to lead Ferriday. Ted Stewart finished with 11 points for Lake Providence.
Ferriday girls coach Lisa Abron compared the Lake Providence basketball team to a lot like her own.
That proved to be an insightful comparison as the Lady Trojans held off the Lady Panthers 45-40 Friday night in a District 2-2A contest.
The Lady Trojans were without Jasmine Upchurch, who missed the game with an illness.
"I was proud of the way the girls stepped up," Abron said. "That was a big win for us because they are hard to beat at their place."
Ferriday led 14-10 after one period and 21-20 at halftime.
The Lady Trojans outscored the Lady Panthers 11-9 in the third period and 13-11 in the final quarter.
Chante Poole led Ferriday with 15 points, while Jasmine Butler added 10.
"Jalessia Davis really stepped up and the other girls pitched in and stepped up to the challenge," Abron said.
Ferriday's boys and girls fell to 1-1 in district play on Tuesday, dropping games to Jonesboro-Hodge in Jonesboro.
The Lady Trojans led J-H 13-8 after one period and 30-16 at halftime.
But the Lady Tigers outscored Ferriday 19-13 in the third period and 22-12 in the final quarter.
Ferriday's boys fell to Jonesboro-Hodge 58-46 as the Tigers improved to 2-0 in district play.
Ferriday visits Farmerville Friday.
The Trojans have an open date Tuesday.
