|OCS drops district tilt to Arcadia|
The Ouachita Christian School Eagles and Lady Eagles each dropped games to the Arcadia Hornets in Monroe on Tuesday night in the midst of a crucial district race.
In the Eagles game, Arcadia jumped out to a quick 22-10 lead after the first quarter, thanks in large part to controlling the offensive boards and OCS not getting the shots to fall in the opening frame.
Chris Dupont led the way for OCS with 22 points and seven rebounds but was in constant torment from a swarming Hornets defense keen on not letting the all-district player get open shots.
Arcadia extended the lead in the second quarter with more big shots coming inside as OCS has little answer for 6-10 center Kourtney Roberson. Roberson finished with 11 points and a game-high 13 rebounds.
Chucky Perry led the way for Arcadia (25-6, 7-0) as he scored 18 points and had 10 rebounds for the Hornets.
Arcadia led 38-20 at intermission and OCS could not recover enough to make a serious push in the second half.
Levare Davis was the only other Eagle in double figures scoring as he finished the game with 10 points and four rebounds.
Micah Shackleford was held to six points and just one rebound in one of the factors to swing in favor of Arcadia.
Shackleford had reached double-digits in rebounds four times in district play heading into the contest with the Hornets.
On the ladies' side, Arcadia (11-11, 7-0) dismantled OCS by a score of 52-15. Abby Kalil was limited to one point and only three rebounds as the Lady Hornets brought their menacing defense into Monroe on Tuesday night.
Arcadia jumped out to a 20-2 lead shortly before the end of the first quarter and put the game into cruise control in their favor.
Mallory Fields led OCS (11-18, 3-4) with nine points and three rebounds. OCS shot just 3-of-33 from the field and 1-of-21 from beyond the arc thanks in large part to Arcadia pressures.
OCS will hit the road on Friday night as they travel with both squads to Cedar Creek School in Ruston.
The Eagles won a classic battle on a last second three-point shot from Dupont on Jan. 20 when they defeated the Cougars 53-51.
Cedar Creek also will remember Shackleford for his double-digit scoring in that ballgame. It will be a battle to see what each team has to alter in their game plan from one meeting to the next.
The district race has come down to teams trying to jockey for a first-round playoff home game as it appears Arcadia will cruise to the district crown on both boys' and girls' sides.
The Lady Eagles will attempt to rebound and get back into the win column in another critical district contest.
Kalil and Fields had a rough night against Arcadia but are both averaging in double figures and Fields has shown flashes of fantastic shooting in district play.
Cedar Creek is coming off a 56-29 win over the Saint Frederick Lady Warriors on Tuesday night. Cedar Creek is currently second in the district standings while OCS is in fourth-place.
Tip-off for the girls game is 6 p.m. with the guys to follow at about 7:30 p.m.
