|Vikings still unbeaten in district|
Vidalia High continued running roughshod through District 3-A as the Vikings routed Bolton 83-55 Tuesday in Vidalia.
Vidalia is averaging 78.2 points a game in its three district wins, while allowing 49.1 points through three district contests.
Vidalia (19-1)ran often and early on the Bears (4-13), jumping out to a 10-0 lead.
Quartrell Thomas hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer at the end of the first quarter to give the Vikings a 23-11 lead after the first eight minutes.
Crisp passes and fast break points allowed Vidalia to go into the lockerroom at halftime with a 42-25 advantage.
"We played well in parts, but we have to do better on the defensive end," said Vidalia coach Robert Sanders. "I think our guys looked at their record and we got sloppy, which we have to stop doing. We can't always get by on just talent. We've got a tough game at Marksville Friday and we have to have a lot of improvement to win there."
Thomas continued his 3-point frenzy in the third period, hitting four beyond the arc as the Vikings hled a commanding 62-43 advantage going into the final quarter.
Thomas led all scorers with 23 points, while Gary Stewart added 17.
Mike Jones led Bolton with 19 points.
Vidalia's girls remained winless in district, falling to Bolton, 54-35.
"We missed too many easy shots and layups," said Vidalia coach Damus Smith.
Gabrielle Wagoner scored 12 points to lead Vidalia while Erika Brown added nine.
Brittany Jones led Bolton with 23 points.
After the Marksville game Friday, Vidalia hosts Buckeye on Tuesday to complete its first round of play against district opponents.
Marksville is 3-0 in district, defeating Avoyelles 55-53 Tuesday night to stay perfect in district.
