|Ferriday girls win tiebreaker|
Ferriday High's Lady Trojans received a No. 4 seed in the Class 2A playoffs after defeating Lake Providence 43-40 Monday in Mangham in a game to settle a 3-way tie for first place in District 2-2A.
Ferriday got the bye by way of coin toss and Lake Providence defeated Jonesboro-Hodge on Saturday.
"We were in the same situation the last two years, but this time it was our turn," Abron said. "I was proud of the girls. They played excellent and this is the type of game we were looking for going into the playoffs."
The Lady Trojans trailed Lake Providence 10-5 after one period, but stormed back in the second quarter to take a 19-15 halftime lead.
"The girls picked up the intensity," Abron said. "We played really good defense and did a good job of blocking out."
Lake Providence outscored Ferriday 18-9 in the third quarter to take a 33-28 lead, but the Lady Trojans took command in the final quarter, outscoring Lake Providence 15-7 to take the win.
Jasmine Upchurch led Ferriday (28-5) with 12 points, followed by Jasmine Butler with 11 and Chante Poole with nine points.
Jalessia Davis, who injured her ankle in practice last month, was found to have torn ligaments and is out for the year.
"We're dedicating the season to her," Abron said. "The other girls are going to carry the load for here."
Ferriday High closed out its regular season with a pair of wins at Delhi on Friday.
Ferriday's girls defeated Delhi 59-33. The Lady Trojans led 15-8 after one period and 30-15 at halftime.
Chante Poole led the Lady Trojans with 26 points, while Jasmine Upchurch added 11.
Ferriday's boys fell to Delhi, 58-43.
"We just didn't play well," said Ferriday coach Glenn Henderson. "I'm just glad it wasn't a district game."
Ferriday's boys will host Sicily Island Friday in a tune-up game for the boys playoffs which begin next week.
