|Ferriday boys, girls win at Farmerville|
Ferriday High's boys and girls improved to 2-1 in District 2-2A with wins over Farmerville Friday in Farmerville.
Ferriday's boys outscored Farmerville 8-2 in overtime to defeat the Farmers.
"We went inside to DeMarco (Lewis) because they were in foul trouble," said Ferriday coach Glen Henderson.
Lewis scored four points in overtime, while Levier Pryor made four free throws.
The contest was tied 55-55 after regulation.
Ferriday led 15-11 after one period and by a 44-37 margin at halftime.
Lewis led Ferriday with 25 points, while Pryor added 23. Carlton Robinson netted 10.
"That was a big win for us," Henderson said. "You have to win your home games in district. We keep watching Joneboro-Hodge to see what they do."
Ferriday had an open date Tuesday.
The Trojans host Sterlington Friday.
"The open date comes at a good time after traveling to Jonesboro-Hodge and Farmerville," Henderson said. "We need a break."
Ferriday's girls defeated Farmerville, 60-42.
The bad news for the Lady Trojans is that forward Jalessia Davis sprained her foot in practice and will be out for at least two weeks.
"That really hurts us in the middle," said Ferriday girls coach Lisa Abron. "We've had to overcome a lot of adversity this year. The other girls did a good job of stepping up."
Ferriday led 23-12 after one period and 39-21 at halftime.
Both teams scored 21 points in the second half.
Jasmine Upchurch, returning to the lineup after a brief illness, led the Lady Trojans with 22 points. Jasmine Bulter added 15 points, while Chante Poole netted 10.
