|Vidalia baseball upends Bunkie|
After a late start because umpires were working a Vidalia-Bunkie softball game that went nine innings, Vidalia High's baseball teams made the wait worth it for Viking fans, defeating the Panthers 8-1 to remain in first place in District 3-3A.
"That was one of our best games of the year," said Vidalia coach Johnny Lee Hoffpauir. "We had good pitching, good defense and hit the ball. We needed a complete effort and we got it."
Mason Ozburn set the tone in the first inning with the first of two home runs as Vidalia cruised past Bunkie 8-1 Thursday in Vidalia.
"Mason had a heckuva game," Hoffpauir said.
The Vikings loaded the bases in the fourth inning and Ozburn emptied then with another long shot over the fence to put the Vikings up 5-0.
Ozburn accounted for the Vikings' sixth run with his sixth RBI in a 3-run fifth inning.
Bunkie's Tyler Gagnard hit a solo home run to keep Trey Brasher from throwing a shutout, but the Viking southpaw kept the Panthers at bay most of the night, allowing four hits.
Seth Thompson added to the Viking offense with doubles and singles, while Cameron Boyette also doubled.
Vidalia fell to Marksville 6-2 Monday to fall into a first place tie with the Tigers.
Marksville scored four runs in the fourth inning, keyed by a home run from Thomas Dunn.
The Tigers had 10 hits, while Vidalia managed eight.
Ozburn had two of the Vikings' hits.
"We had too many mental mistakes," Hoffpauir said. "And you can't have that against a team like that. We got runners on base, but then we would make a mistake on the bases. The effort is there, but we just have to cut down on mistakes."
Vidalia and Marksville both have three district games remaining.
The Vikings host Buckeye Thursday.
"There's still a lot of baseball out there," Hoffpauir said. "Anything can happen in this district. We need to win out."
