Lady Dragons win 65-55 over RHS Lady Hornets

The Rayville Lady Hornets came within one game of repeating as undefeated district champions for the second year in a row, but  the Mangham Lady Dragons came to town and avenged an earlier loss this year on their home court.  

The visitors  came to town with a different game plan and put a full court press on from the beginning.  Even though the Hornets were missing their point guard Jalexis Kelly (who scored  17 down at Mangham), the Lady Hornets built a 15-9 lead with a minute and a half left in the first quarter.  

RHS Hornets cinch wins on way to play offs

Like a broken record, the Rayville Hornets keep repeating blowout wins in district 2-2A. 

The latest to feel the sting were the Mangham Dragons (88-39) and Delhi Charter Gators (100-35) with, in both instances, the “mercy” clock running in the second halves. 

The cousins Wilson (Mylik, JaMichael and JaMarcus) did a lot of the damage, scoring 88 of the 188 points in the two games.  It was John Qualls’ (17) last three of the game that broke the century mark in the Charter game.

Now there is a week off before the start of the playoffs.  

Delhi advances, Rayville falls in state playoffs

The Bears will travel to Haynesville for that game Nov. 23.

Meanwhile, the Rayville Hornets lost their playoff game against Many this past week by a score of 32-53.

The loss dropped Rayville to 6-7 on the season.
