|Hounds sweep CHA|
After a disappointing loss at Lake Providence on Friday, Ferriday's Lady Trojans used its aggressive defense to roll past Mangham 60-27 in Mangham Tuesday to improve to 2-1 in District 2-2A.
"That was much more like it," said Ferriday girls coach Lisa Abron. "We played well and our press was effective. Our energy was there. We needed this win to get over our loss in Lake Providence."
The Lady Trojans caused early turnovers that led to easy baskets for a 24-7 first quarter advantage.
Ferriday increased that lead to 39-12 at halftime.
Deonka Birdon led the Lady Trojans with 16 points, while Chante Poole added nine and T'Keyah Fletcher eight.
"We got a chance to play a lot of players, which should help us down the road," Abron said.
Ferriday's boys remained winless in District 2-2A play as the Trojans fell to the Dragons, 52-25.
Mangham led 13-4 after one period and 26-13 at halftime.
Ted'Drai Gullage led the Trojans with 11 points.
Former Ferriday head basketball coach James Davis, who is now assistant principal at Ferriday High, has taken over the team after Glenn Henderson resigned over the Christmas holiday for personal reasons.
Ferriday hosts Farmerville Friday.
The Trojans play at Jena on Tuesday.
Vidalia High improved to 5-0 in District 3-3A Tuesday night in Vidalia as the Vikings cruised past an outmanned Bolton team 72-32.
"I was a little concerned with the big game at Caldwell (in Columbia) coming up Friday, but the guys came out and took care of business early," said Vidalia coach Robert Sanders. "We were able to play a lot of people."
The Bears found the going tough inside as Torrey Dixon, D.J. Polk and Gary Stewart controlled the boards and forced any Bolton player willing to go inside to get rid of the basketball in a hurry.
Quartrell Thomas kept the Bears honest from the outside.
If Vidalia coach Robert Sanders had any concerns about his team looking ahead to a non-district game at Caldwell Friday, his team took care of those concerns real early as the Vikings dominated play from the tip-off, scoring the first eight points and leading 25-8 at the end of the first quarter.
Vidalia extended its lead to 57-17 at halftime.
Dixon and Stewart led the Vikings with 19 points each, while Polk added 11 and Thomas 10.
Vidalia's girls stayed with Bolton for three quarters before the Lady Bears outscored the Lady Vikings 14-0 in the final period for a 37-24 win.
Bolton went into halftime with a 17-15 lead, but Vidalia outscored Bolton 9-6 in the third quarter.
Gabby Wagoner led Vidalia with a game-high 14 points.
Caldwell defeated Madison in overtime in Tallulah Tuesday night and has been ranked in the top five most of the season.
"It won't be easy, but that's the kind of challenge we need," Sanders said.
Vidalia has been ranked No. 2 in the power ratings for Class 3A all season.
Plaquemine is rated No. 1 at 13.61, followed by Vidalia at 13.37, E.D. White at 12.32, Caldwell at 12.13 and Iowa at 11.87. Carroll is fifth, Green Oaks sixth and Rayville seventh.
Marksville, which competes in Vidalia's district and lost to the Vikings in their first meeting, is ranked No. 12 at 10.27.
Marksville hosts Vidalia on February 2.
Huntington School's boys won their first district games of the season, sweeping Chamberlain-Hunt at Ferriday Thursday and in Port Gibson Tuesday.
