The West Monroe Rebels lost Saturday night in a district playoff game to the Ouachita Lions 54-48.
The Rebels led Ouachita 31-24 at halftime before the home standing Lions devoured their competition in the second half. The near capacity crowd was once again at a fever-pitch for the home-standing Lions.
Both teams came out a bit jittery and that led to early turnovers on both sides. The game quickly turned to a defensive struggle in the second quarter of play.
West Monroe got 10 points in the first half from Corey Lacey as the Rebels jumped out to the large advantage.
The Rebels forced the playoff with a 51-44 victory in West Monroe over the Lions Friday night.
Nick Haywood scored 18 points while Mike Shaw added 16 points and 11 rebounds for the Lions.
Ouachita will now be the No.2 seed in the Class 5A playoffs while West Monroe will be the No.3 seed. Each team will host first-round playoff games on Friday night.
West Monroe played Madison Parish in a tune-up game part of a "Triple-Header" at the Monroe Civic Center Tuesday night.
West Monroe was crushed by the Jaguars Tuesday night, 60-43. Tony Foster and Dominique Ford led the Rebels with five points each.
West Monroe gave their bench ample playing time with the starters only seeing about seven minutes of playing time.
The Rebels will likely host Comeaux High School of the Lafayette district 3-5A in the first round of the playoffs. Walker of Baton Rouge will visit Ouachita Friday night.
Both West Monroe and Ouachita fell on Monday night in second-round match-ups.
West Monroe lost at home to Dominican, 46-43. Kassietta Brown led the way with 18 points for West Monroe while Ashlie Lewis added 11 points for the Lady Rebels.
The story was Dominican guard Colette Morris, the team's third leading scorer in the regular season, who scorched the nets for a game-high 18 points, including five three-point shots in the first half alone.
"She had a hot hand," head coach John Green said. "It is tough when you have someone hitting threes like that. That was the key in the game."
West Monroe made a furious fourth-quarter comeback to close a 15-point deficit to three with less than a minute remaining.
A three-point shot from Jasmine Jones fell short and the Lady Rebels ended their season at 21-8 and champions of district 1-5A.
Ouachita, the third-place team in district 1-5A also lost in the second round of the Class 5A playoffs Monday night.
The Lady Lions (16-14) lost on the road to top-ranked Chapelle of New Orleans 45-30. Maria Brown led the way with 12 points and Ziekie Davis added nine points for the Lady Lions.
Ouachita will return four starters next season and again looks to be very competitive for head coach John Merritt.
