NCHS basketball sweeps Red River; Chiefs home Thursday

The Natchitoches Central basketball teams notched wins over nearby Red River High School Tuesday night.

The Lady Chiefs blew out the Red River Lady Bulldogs 62-16. That improves their record to 8-8. The Lady Chiefs played in a tournament this past weekend and fell to Scotlandville, but beat Zachary on the final day 42-28.

The NCHS girls have been led by ReRe Bowers and Makayla Gallien through most of their games this season. The Lady Chiefs have already started district play, falling to Captain Shreve and Parkway last week. They will not play again until after the new year when they will travel to Airline on January 4.

The Chief basketball team downed the Bulldogs Tuesday night 60-43. The NCHS boys were led by senior Daylin Davis, who had 24 points and 7 rebounds. Justin Aaron and Cayln Demars had 13 points in the contest.

The Chiefs improved their overall record to 8-3 on the year. The losses were to the defending Class 5A state champion Zachary Broncos’ the Bossier Bearkats, the No. 2 team in Class 3A; and the No. 1 team in Class 1A, the North Central Hurricanes.

The Chiefs will play again Thursday as they host Tioga at 5:30, then again next Thursday as they host Homer.
