|Marksville ties up Vidalia|
Vidalia High fell to Marksville 73-66 in Marksville Tuesday to fall into a tie for first place in District 3-3A with one regular season game remaining for both teams.
Vidalia hosts Buckeye Friday for its Sweetheart Game, while Marksville travels to Bunkie.
A win or loss by both teams would result in a shared district title. Should one team lose and the other win, the winning team would take sole possession of the 3-3A crown.
The Vikings beat Buckeye 54-52 in their first meeting while Marksville defeated Bunkie 58-52 in the first meeting.
"I would want to play a tiebreaker, but he (Marksville coach Chris Dupuy) does not want to," said Vidalia coach Robert Sanders. "We just have to be ready to play Friday and hope Bunkie beats Marksville."
Both coaches will be in Alexandria Tuesday where playoff coaches will seed the teams for the playoffs by vote after the LHSAA approve that measure last month.
Vidalia trailed Marksville by 11 points in the third period, but a fourth quarter rally led by Brandon Hawkins and Louis Whitley pulled the Vikings to within 57-54.
"It was a case of another poor third quarter," Sanders said.
But Jesus Carrillo of Marksville hit three 3-point shots to pull the Tigers back ahead and hold off the Vikings.
"Once we found the right people, the shots started to fall," said Vidalia coach Robert Sanders. "We had the wrong people taking shots early which created poor rebounding positioning. We didn't beat them on the boards and didn't beat back on offense. That's what cost us the game."
Hawkins led Vidalia with 23 points, while Whitley added 14.
Vidalia had five players score in double figures as the Vikings cruised past Bolton, 92-47 Friday in Vidalia.
The Vikings led Bolton 21-13 after one period and extended that lead to 46-27 at halftime.
Vidalia outscored Bolton 46-24 in the second half.
Gary Stewart led the Vikings with 21 points, while Quan Riley added 13. Quartrell Thomas chipped in 12 points, while Jeremy Randall and Louis Whitley added 11 points each.
Vidalia's girls fell to Bolton 44-40 in their final game of the season.
Bolton led 15-7 after one period of play and 31-20 at halftime.
The Lady Vikings outscored the Lady Bruins 9-2 in the third period to pull within four.
Both teams scored 11 points in the final quarter.
Rachael Wagoner scored 13 points to lead the Lady Vikings.
