|OCS, St. Fred to clash in rivalry match|
The Ouachita Christian Eagles and Lady Eagles look to get on the rebound in a big Friday night rivalry game against the Saint Frederick Warriors.
OCS fell in consecutive games on Tuesday night to the Grambling Kittens in district 2-1A action.
For the guys, Grambling began the game with the hot hand of Deangelo Williams to build an 18-14 advantage after the opening quarter of play.
OCS (19-12, 3-6) continued to struggle in the second quarter as the defensive pressure mounted inside on OCS.
Grambling Lab led 29-25 at intermission as OCS had little to stop the scoring onslaught from Williams and teammate Brauyne Turner, who each scored 14 points. Heath Moore chipped in 13 points for the Kittens (12-11, 5-4).
Chris Dupont led OCS with 26 points and six rebounds in another great performance by the senior guard.
Matt Parker also scored in double figures with 12 points, as did Levare Davis with 10 points.
The biggest defensive adjustment made from the last game when OCS beat Grambling at home, 66-59, on Jan. 23, was the effort against OCS center Micah Shackelford.
Shackelford was held scoreless on Tuesday night while pulling down a game-high 11 rebounds for the Eagles.
The battle against archrival Saint Frederick at OCS on Friday night will be huge for the Eagles as they position themselves for a playoff spot.
"This is always a real big game for us," OCS head coach Jeff Thomas said. "We know the tradition at Saint Fred and we will have to be ready to play."
Saint Frederick was led by the 22 points of Anthony Marshall in a rousing, near upset of district leader Arcadia on Tuesday night. Arcadia prevailed in the end, 54-50.
OCS currently sits at No. 4 in the latest Class 1A power rankings that will determine the 32-seeds in each classification for the playoffs this season.
On the girls side, OCS lost Tuesday night to Grambling, 63-42. Mallory Fields led the way for OCS with 16 points. Two other Lady Eagles scored in double-figures as Holly Tyler scored 15 points and Abby Kalil chipped in 11 points for OCS.
As has been the achille's heel for the Lady Eagles lately, Grambling jumped out to a big lead with a 20-9 advantage after the first quarter. OCS was out rebounded 53-37 in the contest to help the Lady Kittens grab the victory from the Lady Eagles.
The girls contest will begin at 6 p.m. at OCS when they also host the Saint Frederick Lady Warriors. St. Fred is coming off a hard loss at Arcadia Tuesday night, 67-33.
This will be the last chance for either team to make a case for the playoffs as this will mark the end of the regular season for both schools.
