|Vidaila keeps pace in District 3-3A|
With his team down to District 2-2A favorite Marksville 7-0 and on the verge of falling to 0-2 in the district, Vidalia High coach Johnny Lee Hoffpauir was thinking the worse.
"I was thinking this was going to be a 10-run rule or really getting out of hand," Hoffpauir said. "I saw a look in our kids' eyes that it was fixing to be over with."
But the Vikings rallied for eight runs in the fourth inning to surprise the Tigers, 9-7.
"When they ran in to bat in the fourth inning I told them we needed to start cutting into that lead before its got too late," Hoffpauir said. "These kids have played hard all year long. We've had games where we have played bad, but never given up."
The fourth inning explosion began with Trey Barnes lining a single to left field before Trey Brasher, Hunter Martin, Cameron Boyette, Beau Doughty, Mason Ozburn, Jake DeWeese followed with singles before Barnes delivered his second single of the inning and third of the game.
Brasher, who also had three hits on the day, added a single in the sixth to score Ozburn with the final run of the game.
Ozburn got the win in relief of Brasher, striking out nine over five innings.
"Mason became a pitcher tonight," Hoffpauir said. "He's got all the tools, but he put it all together against a quality team."
Ozburn and Martin had two hits each.
"Hitting is contagious, and that inning is proof positive there," Hoffpauir said. "It was one base at a time. I've been around this game a long time, but I don't think I have ever seen that happen, to score eight runs against a quality team like that in one inning. After losing to Bunkie and facing Marksville, we knew we had to steal one at home. We did that and it was a big win for us."
The Vikings kept pace in district play with an 11-6 win over Buckeye on Tuesday in Deville.
Vidalia scored six runs in the fourth inning to key the win..
Ozburn went 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles.
Jake DeWeese, who picked up th win, had a double and single.
Beau Doughty added three singles in three at bats for the Vikings.
Jacob Sinclair, who just joined the Panther team after sitting out a semester, went 3-for-4 with a double and Clint white was 2-for-3 with a double for Buckeye.
Vidalia hosts Bolton Thursday in a district contest.
