|OCS squeaks past St. Fred; both teams move on to playoffs|
The Ouachita Christian School Eagles slipped by Cedar Creek on Tuesday night with a 53-51 victory.
Chris Dupont scored 31 points to again lead the way for the Eagles (17-8, 1-2). Dupont scored 22 points in the second half, including eight points in the final three minutes to bring OCS back on top.
"We did not play real well," OCS head coach Jeff Thomas said. "They were hitting big shots on the outside and we were not boxing out in the third quarter."
After a pair of treys put OCS down by four, Thomas called a timeout to refocus the team for the home stretch.
"I did not argue with them," Thomas said. "All I did is look at my four seniors and said that this was a district home game and we have to find a way to hit a shot."
Dupont came up with the big three-point shot to give OCS the lead and with five seconds left, a Cougar desperation shot fell short.
Dupont made it a double-double performance by also grabbing 12 rebounds. Chimere Achilihu added nine points and six rebounds for OCS.
OCS was hindered by poor outside shooting in the first half as they shot just 3-of-11 from beyond the arc in the contest.
OCS travels to Grambling Lab on Friday night for another important district ballgame. Grambling is coached by former Carroll head coach and ULM assistant Chris Olney who led Carroll to the Class 4A semi-finals a year ago.
"Coach Olney does a fantastic job over there," Thomas said. "Once they learn the system they are going to be real hard to beat. They are so athletic and fundamentally sound. We have to be ready to get better looks and take advantage of rebound opportunities."
The Lady Eagles lost at Cedar Creek Tuesday night by a score of 56-43. Mallory Fields led the way with 25 points while Abby Kalil chipped in 15 points for OCS (9-16, 1-2).
OCS fell behind early and trailed 29-16 at halftime. The third period saw the Lady Eagles get a hot hand from Fields and make a 13-2 run in the third quarter.
Cedar Creek went 14-of-25 from the free-throw line and sealed the game in the fourth quarter with tight defense on Fields.
The OCS Lady Eagles tip off with Grambling at 6 p.m. Friday with the boys expected to start around 7:30 p.m.
