CHAFFEE -- The Advance Hornets rolled past Chaffee in a make-up game on Wednesday night, 56-28.

The Hornets' pesky defense didn't allow Chaffee to reach double figures in any quarter, and just three Red Devils contributed to the final score.

"Advance had a suffocating defense," explained Chaffee head coach David Mirly. "It was a struggle to get any kind of shot off."

Advance jumped out to a 15-5 lead and never let up, outscoring the Red Devils 13-8 in the second period, 12-7 in the third, then 16-8 in the fourth.

Jared Ritter, Jacob Daniel and Zach Hudson paced the Hornets with nine points each.

"We were able to keep them down and not give up any double-figure scores," said Mirly. "I was pleased with our defensive effort."

For the Red Devils, James Reischman and Sam Burnett each scored 12.

Chaffee (3-14) will be back in action Friday night, traveling to Oak Ridge.

CHARLESTON -- Four players finished in double figures as Charleston blistered Hayti in a make-up game on Wednesday night, 73-37.

Center Kewain Gant led the charge with 20 points, followed by Deshaundray Hamilton with 13, Ashton Farmer with 12 and Dadrian Jones with 11.

Joshua Strayhorn contributed nine in the win.

The Bluejays outscored Hayti 15-7 in the first quarter and 18-1 in the second for a commanding 33-8 lead at halftime. Charleston outscored Hayti 40-29 in the second half for the 36-point win.

For Hayti, Dallas Winda led the way with 15 points.

Charleston (18-3) will host Portageville on Friday night while Hayti (6-12) hosts Cairo, Ill.

SCOTT CITY -- Scott City used a balanced attack to beat Scott-Mississippi Conference rival Kelly on Wednesday night in a make-up game, 81-53.

Darren Wiley scored 12 points, Jeremy Schlosser added 11, while Mark Dannemueller and D.J. Walton each scored 10 in the victory.
