|Monterey goes 1-1 in playoffs|
Monterey High's Lady Wolves made their first-ever playoff game on their home court a memorable one as the home team advanced to the regionals with a 64-46 win over Converse Thursday.
It was actually the first time a playoff game was played on the Monterey home court as previous playoff games were played on a neutral site.
"It was fun," said Monterey girls coach Cary Shively. "It was tremendous. Our girls fed off the crowd. It was something the girls will never forget."
Monterey, which finished fell to Ouitman 50-40 Tuesday in Quitman in a second-round game.
But it was the first round win Monterey fans will not forget.
"We just appreciate our fans so much," Shively said. "The following we have is like none other. We actually had more people at the Quitman game than they did."
Monterey gave its home fans plenty of reasons to cheer Thursday, especially when seniors Rachel Pecanty, Kristen Lipsey and Kendall Lipsey were taken out of the game to a loud ovation with a few minutes remaining.
Monterey, seeded No. 9 in Class B, led 16-11 after one period and outscored the Lady Wildcats 12-9 in the second period for a 28-20 advantage.
The Lady Wolves pulled away in the third period, outscored Converse 21-10.
Junior Ellen Bairnsfather finished with 13 points while Rachel Pecanty and Kendall Lipsey had 12 points each.
Converse, the No. 24 seed, was led by Casey Craig and Lauren Sistrunk, who shared the game-high in scoring with 14 points each.
On Thursday, Monterey fell behind No. 8 seed Quitman 19-6 in the first quarter.
The Lady Wolves outscored the Lady Wolverines 14-9 in the second period to cut the lead to 28-20.
Quitman led 36-27 at the end of three quarters.
The Lady Wolverines made 19-of-30 free throws in the contest, while Monterey made 8-of-18.
Pecanty led Monterey with nine points, while Kendall Lipsey added eight.
"I don't think they were any better than we were, they just had a better night," Shively said. "But that's the way it happens. We still had a tremendous year and the girls played hard all season long."
Monterey lost to Holden in the first round of the playoffs last year.
Quitman now advances to face top-rated Fairview in Grant Thursday.
Fairview defeated Mt. Hermon 98-27 in a first-round contest and blasted Negreet 101-28 Tuesday.
The winer of that game faces the winner of the Rapdes-Weston game in the semifinals.
Rapides, the No. 5 seed, won District 6B.
Monterey finished in a tie for second place in its district with Glenmora and defeated the Lady Wildcats in a tiebreaker contest.
Glenmora lost to Summerfield Tuesday after defeating Midland in overtime in a first round contest.
