Ferriday High dropped a pair of games at Rayville Friday .

Rayville's boys, unbeaten and ranked No. 1 in Class 2A and considered by many as the best team in the state, led Ferriday 30-14 after one period and 61-29 at halftime.

Dantrieze Scott led Ferriday with 16 points. Montrieze Sandage added 14, while Marquell Griffin added 13.

The Lady Trojans fell to Rayville 62-49.

"They are a tough team and much faster than we are," said Lady Trojan coach Lisa Abron. "They play a much more aggressive style. I think a lot of it is mental with our girls."

Ferriday's girls trailed Rayville 23-9 after one period and 39-18 at halftime.

Anasia Turner, returning from a foot injury, led Ferriday with 18 points, while aniya Curry and Pacha Poole added 11 points each.
